Catching a Spring

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

This was the year of Springless Seattle - I think we only had one day over 65 the whole spring. The heat was still going on at night in mid-June. So I decided I better grab a Spring Day while I could and go to LA for June 18-21. That Tzvi Hirsh & Raize live in LA was just a coincidence :-)

Seriously, it was nice to be able to get down to LA to visit TH&R and see their girls for the first time. The place they live in is very nice (I took a very short video of a couple of the rooms http://www.eskimo.com/~chips/vid/LA_haber.wmv ) and LA did give me very nice Spring days. TH&R made the days even better, I really had a great time.

Found out a couple of things about them: TH is a bourbon not scotch drinker (what happened Yankle? :) ) and Raize is a Big Lakers Fan (so she was in a very good mood :-D ).  The girls were very good, Aleeza was a very good sport. The neighborhood is very quiet and smelled very nice.  hmm, that was just a lot of “very”s, so probably the point at which to stop.

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?
