David knew Shirley. It was like re connecting with a friend from high school even though he lived in Chelsea and I lived in Malden. I have not blogged about the Malden years yet. He is still connected to Jackie and Dave where I stayed in Peabody when I first got back to Boston. Also Bruce Sugarman and Barry Blair. I sent him this photo I took at Lynn Shore Drive near Swampscott in 1996.

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.....

I got a lovely email from Ken appreciating the Sandler Family Archives blog :)
do you know what year Zaidie & family came from south of Kiev to America?
i suppose i could look thru yr archives - which i've started to appreciate more = but thought a direct question would be more expedient.
i did not understand yr obsession w/ yr chronicling family & noting yr life until i did.
i can see that that's the stuff of history; those who don't learn from history - well - just don't.
