VERY MANY BIRTHDAYS~

August is quite a busy birthday month for my kin.   This coming Friday will be Mary Anne’s birthday so she, Steve & Bridget came in this past weekend for a party.   It was on Saturday.    Neither Michael nor Sam was available.   They both had to work.   Uncle Frankie, Aunt Lauren,  Uncle Jim & Benjamin all showed up.   Although Aunt Lauren got very badly hurt a while ago, she seems to be doing quite well so far.   At least it’s good to see that she’s already back on her feet & partying.    Benjamin’s been getting very big & talkative lately.   I think he’s around nine years old now.    Uncle Jim’s birthday was on Sunday.   Fran wasn’t available though.  She spent her birthday, August 2, in Canada with a friend.  They both showed up yesterday, after a visit to Uncle Frankie’s with souvenirs for us.   As always the cuisine was exceptionally good but entirely too fattening.    Steve & I even went to Antonio’s in the Midway to get pizza & chicken wings.  Their prices have gone up unfortunately.   It’s still  quite a really good place though.   We haven’t been to Sizzle Pie in Kingston in quite a while.    As always Mary Anne & family made their predictable pilgrimage to Weggmann’s.   They don’t have one in their part of New York & everyone’s really crazy about it.    Of course Steve made sure he took a few people on his plum inevitable jaunt to Jitty Joe’s.   Alas I wasn’t available.  That was the night I went to 7:00 p.m.  Mass at O. L. Sorrows.    Yesterday was Gary’s & Maria’s twenty~ninth wedding anniversary so I made sure I sent them an e mail congratulating them.    It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was in their wedding party.   Today’s Autilia’s birthday too.  She’s cousin Lanfranco’s wife.   Unfortunately the air conditioner in my car hasn’t worked for quite a long time so I shall have to ask Frank Gubbiotti to fix it for me very soon.  There’s quite a major heat wave going on right now.   We also get extremely violent rainstorms, with thunder & lightning, on a regular basis lately.    A man even recently got killed by lightning at Pocono Downs Racetrack recently.   This past week O. L. Sorrows held a blood drive.   I really wish I could have donated blood but I already gave a donation too recently.

  1. Larry,

    This new blog is way too hard to read with the background….maybe don’t tile it…..or use a solid background behind the text! Thanks.

    Otherwise, how are you doing?
