I hope a very lovely time is being had by you and yours (or "youse and you’rn," as some of us have been known to say).
My boys gave me a very lovely gold necklace with a wee red/brown stone and three teeny but 100% real diamonds. I’ve never owned a diamond before; I feel so fancy!
We’re visiting my parents in California, as are Herm, Uncle Joe and the inimitable Augie; also my brother Ben. A fine time is being had by all. Especially because it’s not raining. An unfamiliar brilliant orb looms overhead. Its rays are causing a strange darkening (Maillard?) reaction in my skin. I am uncertain how to respond. What can this astronomical anomaly be?
