You'd be 71-years-old, I am 72.

It's a beautiful afternoon for a birthday. Danny, Kris and Josh celebrating Josh's at Monty's in Coconut Grove.
Josh's Fookem's Fabulous Key Lime Pies going strong. His birthday a grand break for him. Making and selling pies fun, too!

Flowers from Curt's office, his father died age 92.
"Purgatorial isolation” term from NYT editorial. So expressive.
CVS won’t have vaccine for old farts like me until March!
Hello my dearest Carole,
It is that time of year again. Eighteen years of missing and longing.
On the upside, Josh and Danny are chugging along, More than chuggging!
Our Danny, Daniel Abril, made it into the Miami Short Film Festival. His short The Incredibly Short Life of Peter Panties is a finalist!

It is taking place on the Beach next month, and he so wants us there, And I want to be there but am so frightened by Covid that we're passing. And that hurts.
Being old in the time of Covid is mind shifting. Our adult kids are not affected as we are, and as they cautiously go about their lives, we are near mute. I am anyway.
For us, it's a different universe. A sad and depressing one.
Sam had, and recovered, says he's 95 % back.
Nurse Celeste had, says she is fine.
Josh and Danny perhaps asymptomatic.
So far Curt and I are seemingly clear. But I am listless 24\7. The term coined "Covid fatigue." A fatigue like a pervasive exhaustion that sucks the energy right out of you.
Oh Carole, tonight is Yom Kippur and I forgot, that's how crazy things are here with Covid. And politics.
We remember all who came before and I am missing you terribly.
Sam and Will are stopping by for pizza tonight, very last minute.
I just texted Danny. From South Beach he wrote back "we were lucky to have her [you] for the time that we did." Oh, Carole ...now tears welling down my cheeks.
Celeste could make it Friday, so we will have the kids here then, for pizza outside... Josh, Danny, Sam, William, Celeste and am so hoping Miguel, too. Plus me, Hope, and Curt. We've shrunk!
A reworking of the High Holidays this Friday with pizza on the patio outside: terrace dining. HA!
And you my dear sister, with me - all of us - forever.
|Oh Carole! You'd be tickled pink!|
Way to go, Joshua.
|Hawking from home, a beginning.|
|Cooking and baking ....|
