Tea for Three

A good friend from high school called to ask me to go visit his mother in the hospital. He lives in Chicago and won't be in town until the weekend. I did my duty and went to visit her. Great now I have TWO 92 year olds to visit. Oh well... as the song goes..."that's what friends are for."

All of these were made in response to an inspiration over at the Shabby Tea Room.
