This week, I enjoyed breakfast as Patch local editors swapped tales and checked iPhone messages at That Bar in Danville for Happy Hour.
This is my kind of bar food. My hubby and I shared bacon, egg and jack cheddar cheese sliders. I wanted the eggs over easy so that the yolk would spill over the salty meat and bread. I used Choula to add a little kick to my hash browns. I used a couple of vodka 7-ups to wash away frayed nerves and endless worries.
Sad news about the death of the “Most Trusted Man in America.” My hubby said Walter Cronkite passed away while I was sleeping.
He lived an amazing life. His career highlights include Apollo 11, JFK’s assassination and the Vietnam War. He demanded excellence and integrity in the newsroom. I remember reading his scripts in J-School: succinct, sharp and no BS. I think he will continue to be an inspiration to all journalists.
