Uncle Slappy and the cleaning woman.

Uncle Slappy, who left New York for Boca a little more than a decade ago, is flying to New York this afternoon. He'll be house-sitting the weeks my wife and I are gone. The old man is comfortable in my place--we have a well-appointed guest room complete with a Sony flatscreen and a pull-out bed with an extra-comfortable mattress approved by the both of them.

Uncle Slappy and Aunt Sylvie love New York. They will enjoy our membership to the museums not far from our place, our health club and we even, as a surprise, bought them opera tickets for and evening with "Rigoletto." Truth be told, the two of them should never have left New York. But Florida rang and they answered.

Uncle Slappy called just now and he was laughing.

"I just gave the cleaning woman the seven-layer-cake we had leftover from Passover," he began. "I told her it was kosher."

"What did she say to that?" I asked.

"She said, 'I hope it has taste.'"

"That must have set you off," I said.

"I told her that our people haven't survived for 6,000 years by eating tasteless cake."

If you're in my neighborhood while I'm gone, take a few minutes and check in on Uncle Slappy. I'd appreciate it.

Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message
boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

I write a leave a response whenever I appreciate a post on a site or I
have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is caused
by the fire displayed in the post I read. And after this
post "Uncle Slappy and the cleaning woman.". I
was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;-)
I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or do a few of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with you.

Would you make a list the complete urls of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
