A couple of weeks ago...
Me: I have to go grocery shopping, don't make me feel terrible.
Frank: mmmm OK I'll try.
Me: I feel awful.
Frank: I'm going to bring you food so I can work on you.
I went home and just barely made it inside, falling, literally, backwards onto my bed, and falling asleep. Next days feel more energetic.
Frank: (holding a bag) Shall I put these in your car?
Me: OK, thank you. (eeeeeeeek!)
Stagger home, next days feel more energetic.
Frank: (holding a bag) Front seat?
Me: Does this mean I'll be incapacitated?
Stagger home, barely able to drag myself in, but feel compelled to make lentil soup, which I throw together from anything near to hand. It was good. Then I fall into bed and sleep.
I realise later it's Friend Soup. It's made of lentils and onions from SJ, turnips, bulb fennel, carrots, and greens from Frank, and wild rice from Enjah, with organic broth from the grocery store. I'm lucky to be nourished physically and mentally by these generous friends.

A while back I thought you would croak for sure but Frank does miracles. I am sending something, not sure what yet, to help Frank continue to keep you online; this is purely selfish as I have several more movies to make!
