Zoom again. The peripatetic Tom was on a porch swing in 60 degree Atlanta. Paul was up near New Brunswick where he and Sarah had recently attended a whisky pairing meal. Bill and Mark were in the homeland, colder but not as snowy as predicted. That left me on Shadow Mountain, a sunny cold day. We caught each other up, saw the world through each other’s eyes for a moment. Friends. And good ones.

Second Jewish Studies Sunday Sampler. I was not eager to get there, finding my tolerance for being responsible at a low ebb right now. Strange, such a small thing but I just didn’t want to do it. And, it’s my idea. Sparsely attended, like last time. Though. I realized I could catch up on Judaism pretty fast if I saw all these courses through to the end rather than just sampling them.

It’s Hanukah 2018. Big do at CBE on Wednesday with a Hanukah bazaar. Gabe reminded us several times that Hanukah would begin soon.

Biggest news though is that Jon, on December 10, turns 50. Having a 50 year old son pretty much says senior citizen. Not sure what we’re going to do for his birthday, but something fun.

That’s it for the Rocky Mountain News this morning.
