A late blog post today as I’ve been traveling and just settled in for the night.  Normally, it’s way past my bedtime, but out of concern for your concern for me,  dear readers, I am composing this entry before lights out.

Following a brunch of duck confit and bone marrow french toast with Akemi, Jeff, and Barb, I hopped on a flight (pending a 30 minute delay) and landed in Montreal just after 4:00 p.m.  I’m in town for Canadian Thanksgiving, but also here to visit my cousin who is in the hospital but, hopefully, on her way to a speedy recovery.

With my birthday on the horizon (As if you didn’t know!), sis and mom decided to get a jump start on the festivities with some early gifts – all edible of course: assorted macarons, chocolate bars, chocolate-covered roasted cocoa nibs, varied chocolates.  

You get the idea.

Discovered mom and sis making up the guest room for me.  Pillow fight!!!

Finally, I can’t help but notice this missing blind right at the head of the bed.  

Assuming I’ll notice it even more at sunrise EAAAAARLY tomorrow morning!

  1. I wish your cousin a speedy recovery.
    Your mom and sis looking great!
    Enjoy chocholate … and family time!
    Have a good rest!

  2. Glad you did take the time to write as no blog would have been worrying, given that they are never or very very rarely (just once, I think) missed. Hope the window is N/S and not E/W.

  3. Joe, thanks so much for your update. I really look forward to receiving the latest news from you. Hope you have a great weekend with your family.

  4. Happy Birthday!

    It must be so nice to have a functional, loving family. Such a strange concept for so many people.

    Your mom is adorable!

    Did she happen to be an immigrant?


  5. Thanks for posting!

    That’s great you caught up Jeff and Barb. Glad it was a success!

    Your Mom and Sis look wonderful, as always. Waves!

    Have a safe trip!

  6. What? Us worry? You better believe it! Thanks for taking the time to ease our minds.
    That missing blind would drive me crazy. I’d be afraid someone was peaking in watching me all night.
    Say hi to mama Mallozzi and Andria.
