SHIRLEY + AUNT RUTHTonight 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.

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.
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.....
