Had a dinner date Wednesday night with my old dear friend Dr. Jerry Kram. Both of us are Lafayette College class of 1966, which means our 50th is in a year and a half and we’re going together back to Easton, Pa. We went to Lake Chalet for dinner — right at Lake Merritt in Oakland, a gorgeous spot. We drank some lovely California meritage red and quizzed each other on the names of our Lafayette classmates, about 400. We did pretty well. Jerry walked home and Grant drove downtown and picked me up. There is nothing like spending an evening with an old old friend and knowing you still love the guy and you are still alive.
