Lydia, a onetime airline stewardess, lives a few doors down the street with her husband, John. John was a senior airline pilot for TWA and often ferried the Shah of Iran on his various world trips.

I haven’t seen, heard from or thought about Lydia for more than a year. Last night, though, quite unexpectedly, she entered my dreams. We got to fooling around and one thing led to another, until finally, well, you know.

I woke, thinking “what a nice dream,” rolled over and went back to sleep.

Today, around mid-morning, the telephone rang. It was Lydia.

“I baked a banana bread for you,” she said. “John will bring it by, shortly.”
