Columbus Day 2008

  • We celebrated Paul's 79th birthday yesterday. Bill T. asked him if he had made a birthday wish, and Paul replied, " Yes, but it's none of your business". Jean blushed. Well, hope you have many more good wishes!

  • Gladys reported that Gwen had called from Florida, and she will be visiting this week. Look for her at Sam's on Friday morning.

  • Alicia was looking forward to a week's sailing trip. She sailed from Philadelphia on Sunday.

  • Harold will be off to the state of Washington for a long teaching weekend.

  • It was Wall Street's best day in years, going up many points instead if down for a change. Maybe 13 is not an unlucky number. Let's see what happens the rest of the week.

  • Enjoy the warm "Indian summer" weather while it's here. Hope Mike and Glenn continue to recuperate at home. We are thinking of you.

Happy Birthday Paul! And Sam's Bagels Blog!

My recovery is going smoothly but tediously slow as I spend Indian Summer in a chair !@#$%&.

Speaking of !@#$%&, the economy is not getting better. I blame four people: FDR for eliminating the gold standard, LBJ for initiating deficit-spending, Ronald Reagan for ballooning deficit-spending to absurdity, and Bush for obvious reasons.
