ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 6

A funny thing happened on the way to.....in our case standing in line to get cafe au laut and beignets,in the French Quarter, in New Orleans. A young woman, in front of us,was studying a tourist brochure. A Grandson looked over her shoulder, made a comment and in a second ,it was Buffalo Grove, Illinois to Oak Park ,Illinois Jewish geography. Jews have a way of knowing a fellow traveler.How is that. In 20 seconds we bonded. Her Dad in BG was tracking her on GPS. We should have thought to ask to speak to him.. That would have been hilarious.Us in line, he in his home in Buffalo Grove,his daughter ,in New Orleans,talking to strangers in a coffee line, all with pretty much a history that binds us together. Now that is Besherit (meant to be).

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
