Sitting alone in the park, he remembered the tight-knit community at the foot of the mountain where everybody knew everybody.

It was a paradise surrounded by rice fields and farmlands as far as the eyes could see.

The civil war changed all that, as families were forced to escape the hostilities and became refugees.

He and his family lived in New York now. It gave them a new lease in life. Still, he missed the village of his boyhood.

Break time was over. He stood up, took a deep breath, and went back to his station at the parking garage.

Steak with Grilled Broccolini

 
Upon arrival in Penzance, our tour guide treated us for dinner at the restaurant in the hotel where we stayed. From the menu, I selected English steak and grilled broccolini with garlic butter sauce.

Did I say English steak? Yes, I did, simply because we were in England. Honestly, I can’t distinguish English steak from any other kind of steak for that matter. I’m not that sophisticated.

Anyway, I think I made the right choice. It was great and cooked to perfection. I left the plate clean like a good boy.

We stayed in Penzance for three days visiting popular attractions in Cornwall including the Lanhydrock House and Gardens, Land’s End Landmark, St. Ives, and St. Michael’s Mount. From there, we drove 212 miles to Bath, famous for its ancient Roman-built baths.

Richard had no use for Diane anymore. She became like an old plug that had reached the end of its useful life.

Back in the day, he couldn’t get enough of her. She was young, beautiful, and belonged to a well-connected family.

Friends and relatives had misgivings when Richard proposed to her. They thought he was marrying her for her money and family connections. But love was ever blind. She ignored the warning signs.

After achieving the financial success he so desired, Richard unplugged her for a younger woman.

Six months later, Diane died of cancer and a broken heart.
