Then Fred Gonzalez invited me to join his group. This group plays tennis at the unearthly hour of 7.30 on Sunday mornings. Fred and his friends blend the social elements of my Taiwan friends with the friendly seriousness of Elmer's e-collection: between every changeover of sides, we sit on the bench and, as we sip our water, we banter, or tell a joke or narrate an incident which occurred during the week. At the end of the game, as we walk back to the parking lot, we talk about bad knees, the tricks our ticker plays on us and the prima-donna attention we must pay to our prostrate. Fred, Dan Lovett, Henry Venturoni, John Scheidel and Ron Ternosky have the sense of humor, the detachment and the attitude of acceptance that nature gifts to those who enter their sixties.
