reading and avoiding TV even when in a bar or restaurant.
being a grandmother which is easier but only slightly than being a single mother. I recently left Brooklyn to join my children in bitter cold Chicago.
the weather has been kind this year. and going to the Zoo to see the Apes and take pictures without a glare. And learning to cook, at last!

You were in My 7th grade homeroom. You sat in the first row about five or four seats towards the back of the room as I remember it. You also appeared at the emergency room at Bellevue hospital when I was there one day. Nothing serious. I didn't introduce myself. You were too busy. And it would have taken too long to e xplain. But now I have all the time in the world, too bad you don't remember me

I sat by the window at the front of the room

Congratulations on your retirement. I trust it will be very productive and enjoyable. Maybe one day we can spend time together, again.

Have a. Great birthday. My sister Alice died in Feb. I am still in mourning. But life in Chicago is very nice. In synk with my personality needs. And not that cold. Just not enough sun. I take extra vitamin D3. How are you and the freak neck crew? And your brother?
