Pi Party 2018 – A Three Days After π Day Party

What is a Three Days After π Day Party

Let’s see 3/14 + 3   I guess it’s St Patrick’s Day

But since we aren’t Irish, please join us for our

Third Annual π Party

(who knows, maybe we will have Corned Beef & Cabbage or (non-dairy) Sheppard’s Pie.)

We’ve been in Florida since December, but we’ve hardly seen all of the friends that we want to see. So in order to catch up with as many people as possible, please join us to celebrate π Day and special birthdays of our friends born in 1958

Saturday March 17, 2018   1:00 – 5:00

Once again, we plan to server  π  oriented foods – vegetarian   or no meat and dairy mixed.  Some ideas include:  πzza  πe,  πerogies,  πnapple Upside Down Cake, Any variation of fruit π, etc.

If you would like to contribute food great, let me know what you can bring but we head back to Corning just 10 days later so I must ask for you to take your leftovers home (or perhaps negotiate with someone else to swap leftovers – thanks)

Where are Ron and Gloria TODAY?

Hello

Hello

How are you, WHERE ARE YOU

That conversation seems to repeat with almost every call.  If you asked me 2-3 years ago if I’d be splitting my time between not two, but three houses and retired at 58 I would have thought you crazy, but that’s  been our life the past two years, going between homes in Caton, NY, Emerald Green, Rock Hill, NY and Valencia Shores, Lake Worth, FL.

2016 In Review

In 2016 we learned a new term, snowflakes.   Unlike snowbirds who migrate south for the winter; snowflakes never stay long in one place. And so every few weeks we were sleeping on essentially the same mattress, but at different homes. We’ve managed to work our travels around theater subscriptions and other shows, support group meetings and other events.

We started the year with a cruise to the Costa Rica, Panama and Columbia. But then Gloria starting having severe back pain, which resulted in surgery July 21. However, I still have some inflammation and pain, but just since November, I’ve been able to “walk normally”.   I had a good physical therapist and I am trying to exercise by doing at least one type of exercise (walk, bike, yoga and water weights) every day.

In April, Ilene and Keegan hosted a “we survived one year of parenting” party. Since then Nava has made a wonderful transition to the toddler world. She now has a large vocabulary, both spoken and understood, and she follows instructions and loves to emulate her parents (i.e. trying to do a handstand).

In June, unfortunately, Ron’s dad, Norbert Friedman, passed away. He was 94 ½ and both a holocaust survivor and WWII veteran. See my website for more information and tributes.

In July we had Jessica’s bridal shower and in August Ron and Jonathan jumped out of a “perfectly good” airplane to celebrate Jonathan’s 30th birthday.

Labor Day weekend we celebrated Jonathan and Jessica’s wedding (after 8 years of dating).   It was a wonderful three day event at The Kaaterskill, near Hunter Mountain in the northern Catskills.

Since them we did a week in Portland and Seattle, a 3 day cruise, one week in Phoenix, visiting in NYC and NJ and back and forth between the houses.

We still are looking for people to join us on a Southern Caribbean cruise for 14 days in January, Amsterdam to St Petersburg for 12 days in August and 4 days to Cozumel in December. Call or see my website for details.   And of course to visit us at any of our locations.
