My grandfather’s corner at the dining table

92 year old Papa:
Wakes up every morning. Makes and has a honey-cinnamon concoction. A papaya, his porridge (like all Barrettos…), a  clove of garlic (good for the heart). Watches the news. Goes to the bank. Visits his brother who lives near the post office. Comes back. Emails his grandchildren. Checks his shares. Calls his broker. Keeps an eye on our bank statements…

and amuses himself with the constant babbling of my grandmother’s tailor!
