No More Anita

Some of you probably remember me mentioning that when I see the nephrologist in Burke, she's unhappy that I eat at Anita's close to the clinic. It's New Mexican food and very good, but a lot of protein and fat. I always figure I see the nephrologist twice a year and having a meal at Anita's twice a year is not a big deal.

When we had an Anita's in Manassas (and if we still did, I'd probably eat there more often), Anita was often there and we talked twice. I'd know she was there because her Rolls Royce was outside. She was a very nice lady, and an excellent businesswoman.

Well, yesterday I turned a page in the WashPost and saw her picture. I thought "Anita!" and then realized it was an obituary. This obit was "A Local Life," where the WashPost writes a special obit for well-known people in the area. I won't see her again, but her family will continue the restaurants.
