Family News


Our Mara surprised us all last night by marrying her long time friend Guy, who is a nice guy, in a private ceremony overlooking her favorite beach at Cape Cod.  Guy is a nice fellow, low key, owns a great dog, and loves the outdoors.  A clan gathering will be held in October for those who can make it.  Please join me in wishing them well.

The Firefly

The firefly's flame
Is something for which science has no name
I can think of nothing eerier
Than flying around with an unidentified glow
on a person's posteerier.

Ogden Nash
