Friday night is our date night. Heybet (our 'adopted' Iraqi daughter) keeps (most of) the kids on Friday nights to give us a couple of hours off. This week we met our friends Jim and Carol McDonald, who are moving to the US in April. It will be hard to say goodbye to them. They've been a real encouragement to us. We have two connections: one is that we are both post-Asia couples, now living in Turkey. They lived in Indonesia, and we were in Singapore. Hence, they suggested we go out for Asian. There is a new place near their house called Quick China. It was the real thing. Huge red door. Waiters dressed in black and white Asian suits. Cooks that weren't Turkish. The other connection we have with them is that they are grandparents, far from their grand kids. We have grand kids far from their grandparents. It works out nicely.
