Last Night

My dad, Ed Abrahams, 95, WW2 vet (USN) threw out the first pitch at last night’s Rays/Red Sox game in Port Charlotte. (I went down in the afternoon to warm him up.) Here he is showing some incredulous Rays his high school glove, a Luke Appling model bought in 1941. “You caught with that?”one said.

    What a precious memory!
    Our people just came back from Michigan where they celebrated the DTD’s aunt’s 95th birthday.
    We think it’s great to have all of the special elders in our families.
    Terrific Thursday for everyone.
