I skipped out of the swim meet early today in order to go my student's family benefit for the older brother who has cancer. I had never been to The Nickel Joint in Frogtown before. I might have to go back. It reminded me of The Sportsmans or The Hurry-Back in Chariton. It was nice to meet the older brother and see the two of them together. There's a lot of love and happiness there, as well as a lot of support from friends and family.
