Sometimes it is about the tennis

Among my favorite annual rituals is attending the U.S. Open (tennis) on Labor Day weekend with SeanEric, and ElizabethTricia is invited but declines. Some of my New York friends have even gone along when we had a spare ticket or two.

If you follow my posts here and on Facebook, which I know everyone does faithfully, you know my mantra: “It is never just about the tennis.”

Yesterday in Melbourne:
Wang Qiang defeated Serena Williams.
Coco Gauff defeated Naomi Osaka.
Ons Jabuer defeated Caroline Wozniaki in Wozniaki’s final match before retiring due to health reasons.

Sometimes, my friends, it is about the tennis.

Thanksgiving 2019

Thanksgiving 2019 was spent at the Shire in New York. Sean and Henrik came and visited. Cooking went well with the exception of dropping a bowl of oysters on the floor. They would have been a new recipe. Ah well. Some other time.

The bison steak was the star of the plate.

11 Dec #Grow #AdventWord 2018

11 Dec #Grow

It’s the house where it happened; the home where they grew.
Sean was two when we moved in;
it is the only place Eric lived until he went to college.
This was taken on the day we scattered.
We still own the home atlthough none of us live there any more..
Tricia is in Louisville.
Sean and I are in diferent parts of Manhattan.
Eric and Essie are in Ann Arbor.
