JULY 4TH, SHIRLEY + AUNT RUTH, RON'S ANNIVERSARY

Ron and Pam celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on June 28th. I did attend their wedding in June, 1998 which took place in a beautiful, natural setting in Marin, CA, Mt.Tamalpais I think. Now they live in Willits, CA in Mendocino County. Hoping to get out there to visit them soon.





SHIRLEY + AUNT RUTH
Tonight is Shirley's yahrtzeit, Tammuz 8. Her birthday is July 5th. Aunt Ruth passed away July 11th; her yahrtzeit is Tammuz 5 which oddly, according to the Jewish lunar calendar, corresponds to June 29th. And her birthday is July 14th. Two sisters who were not close, both 'metamorphosized' within days of their birthdays and each other.

This photo was taken by Ken I believe who came prepared with his camera and tripod for this rare, group photo of both sisters and cousins. We were at a chinese restaurant in Swampscott in 1998. Ken and Aunt Ruth visited with Barbara, sister of Ken.

The Red Sox are sitting on top of the Eastern Division by one game over the Yankees ! Not too shabby without Big Papi. Remember you heard it here first from The Miller Report...David Price who is supposed to be our ace pitcher but started his season two months late due to injury is now in altercations with the Boston press. He chewed out two reporters. Prediction: he will be gone as soon as he can despite his $219 million seven year contract. Fine, we have Chris Sale who is our ace pitcher.

ART SHOW
Resident artist Ruby Pearl asked me to show my paintings in the 1550 artspace. She is a very gifted artist; she said "your work really should be seen" so that made my day. She also offered a lot of help to make it happen which might make the project actually doable. I owe Bernice a paper bag drawing.


HAPPY JULY 4TH - enjoy the long holiday weekend. I hope to get to the MFA on Monday to see the Matisse exhibit which closes July 9th.....
