When we were applying for visas for India we found out the only way to expedite them overnight was to go to the Indian embassy in DC. That story remains to be told but at the end of it was a wonderful opportunity to have dinner with Scott ‘s friends and furniture colleagues Teddy Kanter and his daughter Janice. They own Theodore’s, the most exclusive contemporary furniture store in Washington DC. Two of Scott’s friends from high school days in India in 1968—-Grant Fox and Jenny Ely—-were at the dinner, too.
As was our dear friend Abu K who got us to DC via stretch limo. That’s Teddy, Janice, and Jenny in the picture above. Grant is in the photo at the bottom. The dinner lasted several hours long because we were all having so much fun, old friends and new, celebrating the acquisition of the visas after an arduous day of bureaucratic red tape. Here’s Abu grinning ear to ear after having helped us pull it off.
We didn’t want the dinner to end. The very next day we would be winging our way to Los Angeles for a reunion with family and friends on our way to Goa.
Dinner in DC was magical all around…..ruckus laughter….reminiscing. We sat at a big, round table….so all of us could talk together. The food was the yummiest. Everyone….including Scott…. ate with gusto. Katy told us about her first dates with Scott on the west coast….that story held everyone spell bound. Life doesn’t get better than that!
