I just had a great weekend down in Queens with my sister and her family. We are not going to be together for Thanksgiving. So we had a fake Thanksgiving on Saturday. It was great; got to meet my niece’s new boyfriend and my nephew’s new girlfriend. Then on Sunday, I had brunch with one of my cousins and my youngest brother was there.

I had my follow up CATscan on Friday and it was one of the hardest tests I’ve ever had to take. They made me lay on my stomach and had my chin fixed in a certain way that I could not breathe. I was told to breathe in from my nose and let out. I just keep on breathing and saying my prayers.
Another trip to the ER, this time for my throat, Thank God it was not strep; just the start of a nasty cold. Yes, I had been resting and drinking plenty of fluids. I know so many who have this cold, and they say it’s a bad one.
I am so overwhelmed by all the well wishes, cards, emails, and phone calls about my ear. I went to the ENT, who said that I have a deviated septum and a sinus infection.
I have to start off by saying I am sorry there was no column last week. I was in Wayne Memorial Hospital from Saturday to Tuesday. I was sitting in Two Guys from Italy eating a nice lunch with my brother’s girlfriend, Debbie, when my ear popped and my throat started to vibrate and my face went numb.
Due to the holiday weekend I had to get my column in early. Sometimes I do not have anything to write about, and I say “I am going to give this up;” then I remember all my readers and I know I cannot disappoint them. I am writing this on Friday, September 1.
Those of you who know me know I spend a lot of time on Facebook, for work and for pleasure. I am able to talk to all my family my friends and cousins all over the world. I get to see your new kids and grandchildren. I am a part of your family parties and I enjoy finding old classmates and childhood friends.
I just got back from a very fun vacation at Ocean City, MD with my cousins Donnie and Rose. The ferry ride over was so nice and relaxing—but not so good on the way back after that bad storm. Water was so choppy. Thank God for Dramamine and sea bands, or I would have been feeding the fish.
Very busy weekend: on Saturday, I drove up to Cobleskill to go to my friend Paula’s annual pig roast. It took me over 3 hours to get there; I did make a few stops. I was having a really nice time seeing people I have not seen in a few months. When it started to rain, we were protected by two really nice carport tents.
