Arden Par-fitt, of some-where in Wis-con-sin, Sun Prairie perhaps, made plans months ago to visit his brother. Waiting and negotiating as he did, he got a completely different visit than he expected.
Arden arrived in Burlington, Vermont, Saturday, 25 July, to visit his elder brother in the hospital, the result of a seizure on Thursday, 23 July.
Happily, Bruce was released from the hospital that day into a sunny afternoon that included trips to Burlington's finest: The Skinny Pancake, Lake Champlain waterfront, Kinney Drugs on Susie Wilson Road and home to Johnson.
Arden left five days later.
