Review of trip back East for MM & F wedding

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

woops, I forgot to post this in January!  :-(

MenachemMendel and Fayge’s wedding was very nice. I didn’t get there until the chupa had already started, so missed out on my meat eating at the “smorg” :-)   Met lots of relatives, including EM’s children for the 1st time. No Rayze from LA and no Bayle though.

Spent Monday in Baltimore after driving down from Passaic. Most of the time I spent at Uncle Mendel & Aunt Hadasa’s, my first visit there. Uncle Mendel unfortunately is just not doing well. His memory is extremely poor. Aunt Hadasa though is still chipper and moving around quite a bit. After getting a pastrami sandwich, I visited with Aunt Peshie. She showed me some photos of Uncle Joe and we talked about various things.

Next day was Passaic and visiting my Mother along with the other relatives. Annie R came with me and she visited her Mother (Aunt Libby). I took photos which I hope came out ok and hope to post them. Forgot to mention: it was very cold and a penetrating cold at that. I just could not do my usual job when at the cometary.

Back to Passaic, then on to the airport. On both parts of the trip I had no issues with the security, they both went quite quickly. So now that I made it through another trip, I am starting to think about my next one. Maybe LA? Perhaps Baltimore in the spring?

In case you have not heard,

Annie Fialkoff Rosen, who is the last of our generation, and Michael’s daughter Nechama got engaged last week. Rumor has it the wedding will be April 01 in Lakewood.

Maybe we can all crash at Tvi Hirsh & Rayzel’s :-)
