(Photo taken during this past weekend's trip to the Freese Family Farm.)
Left: My mother's faux-laminated instructions for my father as to what he needs to do to successfully get that strange machine on the counter to make his morning coffee.
Right: The note my father re-uses to indicate to my mother that she does not need to worry about preparing his evening meal.
Behind camera: Son who loves both his parents well enough but who regularly feels when he visits home like he would gnaw his arm off if that was what was necessary to get out of a marriage like theirs.
