Thanks and thanks and thanks!

First of all to a friend, Susie, who happened across the Samba workshop Ali Z is attending and sent this photo of her instructor Lucas Miguel Marcos in an interpretive dance.  She said she couldn't get any photos of Ali Z herself.   Classroom photos were prohibited.  But she did get a short conversation with her that she would be home this weekend and MAY bring Lucas Miguel Marcos with her!  Love in Sao Paulo!

Also to those who felt our support of Martha and Bailey was good and appropriate, thanks.  I have never decked a stuffee before and this wasn't easy but I felt it was the only right thing for me to do.  I doubt that I will be able to do it again, but I suppose it all depends on the circumstances.  To those of you who routinely kill off stuffees, you need to find another method to express your support.  A hunger strike perhaps, but whatever its gotta hurt a little!  And to Beckett and Cloud, No it wasn't fun, and no, I don't like doing it.

For those of you who wished my Mom well regarding her snooter, things are looking pretty good.  On December 1st she will go back and have Mohs Surgery, which is highly successful (99% cure rate), and its a one day thing, she will be home that late afternoon.  So, again, thanks for all of your good wishes, from my Mom and from me.

Congrats to all you Yankee fans who have been cheering your boys on, and to you Phillies fans, there is always next year.
