My Sentiments Exactly

Cold. Windy. Raining cats and Dawgs. Funeral to attend. Miserable miserable day.

CosHarbour writes to say his dear dad passed away last week at age 92. Here’s our collective hug, CH.

Hope your Friday is better, warmer, and sunnier.

  1. Sorry for your loss Cos. Is your mom still alive? Hopefully yes.

    I’m hunkered down at home today with no intention of leaving 06830.

  2. I ventured out this morning to stock up on party supplies and was met with crowds everywhere doing the same. Costco was mobbed. I got lots of hors d’oeuvres, cups, plates, napkins etc. Limes lemons, mixers. Got beer at the place in Port Chester.

    I decided not to have a betting option per se because I didn’t announce it on the invites so people might not come with cash, especially lots of ones. I don’t want to be the banker either. Next year.

    The forecast sucks for tomorrow too so it looks like we’ll be inside, not out on the patio.

    Cos, I lost my dad last year. It’s a tough thing to deal with, no matter their age. Once a parent goes, a permalink to your past is also gone. Thinking of you.

  3. My condolences to Cos Harbour. Getting to 92 is a good long life, I hope happy memories give him comfort at this time.

  4. Condolences to Cos, losing a parent can be difficult, no matter the age or circumstances. 🙏

    Truly awful weather, I ventured out Stamford to see my chiropractor (woke up all crooked today) and it was like a ghost town. We are settled in for the day now, I think.

  5. Many thanks to all. My Dad now in a Dad In A Box, as in cremated, had fantastic church service with my dearest mother, brothers, and my sister. Afterwards, endless courses restaurant meal and wine for several hours with all my lovely cousins, nephews, nieces, and friends. Most delightful was some peeps I invited knew each other from tennis. All in all fantastic and not at all sad.

    1. So heartened to hear the day, despite the torrential rains, brought together the family you love. That’s what it’s all about.
