I had to break the news to my mom tonite, that her twin brother died. One

of the hardest things I've had to do, if not the hardest. He died on Monday and was buried this morning. We were only notified after the fact. She was understandably upset and sad, but took the news better than I thought. I was expecting full on hysterics. Maybe they're still to come. We toasted his life with a cocktail and I even found a nice pic of him and his sis.

I have fond memories of Uncle Mike. He took me to my first ballgame, a doubleheader against the Cardinals in '67. We hopped on the subway and spent the day at Shea. He taught me how to play tennis, and was quite the player himself. And played many a game of stickball in the schoolyard. A grate New Yorker for sure.

Miss you gals and guys. Hope y'all are doing well.

Oh, and Tiger's back.
