Laytonville (Mendocino county), December 30, 2014—
DINNER IN THE COUNTRY, on our son's ranch high above the beautiful Long Valley, looking out toward the east and the Yolla Bolly — fine open country, bracing and healthy.

We had venison. Meadow battered and breaded boned-out steaks — "chicken-fried" steaks, served with delicious mashed potatoes and good old milk gravy, the milk from their own Jersey. Alongside, green beans nicely cooked al dente and buttered. Simple, substantial, rewarding fare for a fine, cold, silent country night.
