Yesterday afternoon we drove to Rochester, New York to meet our son for dinner. Devin had turned 24,  April 4th but his work precluded our getting together that day.  Where have the last twenty-four years gone? All parents probably ask questions like that. We arrived at his apartment which is on the east side of the city near the science museum.  It was such a lovely day that we took a brief walk with him as we awaited the arrival of his girlfriend.

As we walked we noticed crocuses, robins, gray squirrels and a particularly cute black and white dog. We strolled along this lovely section of the city and enjoyed it along with the other folks who seemed to be out enjoying this lovely harbinger of warm weather.   After our walk we all climbed into our PT Cruiser and headed for Pittsford Plaza and Plum Garden.  Plum Garden was Devin’s choice for his birthday dinner. The four of us arrived and were seated after a brief wait. It’s been awhile since I ate in a Japanese restaurant. Our dinner was prepared before us and  it was a real delight. The food was excellent and I’d recommend Plum Garden to anyone visiting Rochester or Pittsford.

    My prescription for you is to eat as much sushi as you can handle. You are starting to see the wisdom of Japanese food. Give me a sushi roll and a glass of plum wine, and I am at one with nature….or my stomach. As I have shown you the wisdom of Ben & Jerry’s, so I shall also with a California roll.

    By the way I’ve found anew the pleasures of some of B&J’s new flavors. Sushi maybe, plum wine is not for me. I do like the show that comes with dinner. 🙂 Don
