Today I was invited to visit my eldest son in his new apartment. It's a cozy two bedroom in a prime location, close to shopping and public transportation. As an added bonus there is free guest parking within walking distance of the back patio. He was happy to see me and to introduce me to his roommates. He seems to be settling in and is surrounded by friends.
