Today, if my calendar is correct, is Sunday.

Today at 11 a.m., I shall meet my cousin Butch and his fiancee Sharon for lunch.

Afterward, i shall stop at Third Generation Restaurant and pick up my dinner.

Then, it's Zoom time.

I'm in a rut!


Sounds like a wonderful rut to be in!

Sounds like so much fun DR RON PULLIAM.

Do cousins still have the wonderful relationships we do?

Perhaps it is a thing of the past.

PEE-ru was also the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus.

Since we've been talking the last couple of days about families involvement with the concentration camps and WWII, here's more on our family.

Hitler couldn't destroy my dad's section of the Landau family, but Lady Macbeth was able to do that.  The tag line for my stories about Joann could be -

Don't miss HITLER 2
"She converted to Judaism and proceeded to completely finish off the Holocaust survivor family that the Nazi's couldn't finish off."


My father was a Holocaust survivor who lived to 100-1/2, passing away (from Covid) in February 2021. He had written his memories of the Holocaust by hand, planning at the time to form them into a book. We had his notes typed up, and a cousin put Dad's narrative online pretty much verbatim (though occasionally some words were just not legible to us, so instead of guessing what he was writing, we just noted that the specific words here and there were hard to read.  We wanted that to remain entirely in Dad's words.).

 hoping to add his voice to the cry of "Never again," whether or not we're actually able to create the book Dad had once planned.









That's amazing, Freddie.  Thanks for sharing.

For the past two days I have been cleaning out and rearranging my spice cabinet. I have three unopened jars of marjoram. Don’t ask why. I cut three containers of basil down to two, two jars of mustard seeds to one, and who knows what all else. I inherited another person’s spices, so I now have more arrowroot than any one person needs. And I have bay leaves for more than a hundred stews. It’s going slowly. But I hope to get it done today.

I did not see the film when it first came out.  I saw it later at a time when I really needed to understand about alcoholism and what was happening with my mother.

My mom was a Holocaust refugee who came over on a boat at about eight years old, but her parents and sister were not able to get on the boat.  Just as my Dad wanted every detail of his experience with the Nazis known, Mom preferred not to talk about it. 

My mom chose to go with the feeling that, as far as her life in America was concerned , the family (by birth, her aunt and uncle) that took her in and accepted her as their daughter, whose son (by birth, her first cousin) accepted her as his sister - were her parents and brother.  And their families always treated us as Mom being their daughter and sister, respectively.

Your mother was very fortunate to have a loving family.  Was she on the boat with them?

A question for DR Jrand73, since you just op'ned --

How often, in the "post-covid" era, does your theeder suffer from notable low attendance? It almost doesn't matter what the play or musical is here, attendance is deplorable.

Okay, there are indeed exceptions. But in general...
