Project 365 - Photo of the Day - November 23, 2008

We did a good deed today. For the past 15 years, Maxine has been coming to my home to iron our clothes. She is wonderful and always cheerful. We trade stories and actually found out that we are both from Far Rockaway! Well her husband has been not doing well. So Joel and I brought them a huge basket of a frozen turkey, yams, corn bread and cranberry sauce. She was so appreciative and made me take a tour of her apartment! She was in the middle of baking red velvet cakes for her family.

When we were done we went over to the Temple Beth El Memorial Gardens cemetery to visit our good friend, George. We were very close with George and Gert. Gert is still alive and kicking and is spending Thanksgiving with us when we go over to the Kaplans. It took a while to find George, but finally Joel went into the office to ask for directions and of course the lady laughed at him and said, "just like a man . . . won't ask for directions!"

We always thought that this sign was funny, a dead end next to the cemetery!

Then we picked up our other octogenarian friends, George and Pepsy and went out for a nice Sunday night Chinese food dinner! It was like we were in Chinatown in New York or San Francisco with the ducks hanging in the windows and Chinese writing all over the walls!
