Chapter Sixty-Four

Louise and Roger have a very special New Year’s Eve tradition. They began it when they were quite young – when love first dropped its magical dew on them.

On New Year’s Eve, Roger makes a pizza with pepperoni and Louise – taking the day off from cooking – makes Brandy Alexanders in the old Osterizer.

They drink the Brandy Alexanders while the pizza bakes. When the pizza is ready – they eat while watching American Movie Classics.

They hold hands and sit quietly on the couch watching duo-chromatic figures flit across the screen.

At 11:59 p.m. they embrace and begin a long loving kiss that will carry them right into New Year’s Day.Herc64.jpg
