They say that time flies when you are having fun. I guess I must be having a ball. This is the Dec. 2016 issue of the Aberdeen Times and I do not know where this year has flown. The good news is that we are here to acknowledge so much that has taken place.
Among the good things was the celebration of Saul LeVine’s 80th birthday. He was surrounded by friends and Dorchester neighbors at Benvenuto’s Restaurant for an evening filled with fun, music, good friends and delicious food. Now that’s the way to do it. And then, the Levine’s headed for NYC to attend the Balloon Inflation Party in order to view the giant balloons and floats featured at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. All this, with their grandchildren and relatives.
Harvey and I have not been having a fun time. We had a flood from underground pipes that involved our hot water pipes. Yes, the hot water was turned off, so showers happened at the Club. Thank you Aberdeen CC. Then we had to locate where the broken pipe was and relocate the hot water pipe. At last we could take a shower at home. Then … the contractors had to remove the baseboards and dry out the walls and carpet. OYE! Finally, the contractors had to deal with the insurance company. We are told this should be completed by the end of this year. SUCH FUN! And now I hear there is another family dealing with a similar problem. They have our empathy. Fortunately, we are all good swimmers.
On a happier note, we are happy to report that Sy Goldstein, who had back surgery recently, is on the mend. Looking forward to seeing him walking Chloe again and maybe even taking his wife, Phyllis, dancing.
Dorchester would like to welcome the Crupi family to our community. They have moved into 7653 Dorchester Road. So happy to have them with us. We missed welcoming another resident, Robert Maniello, who lives at 7773 Dorchester Road. We are delighted to have him with us, as well.
Now that we have all celebrated Thanksgiving, we know that this holiday was more than just food. Hopefully, many of us have made up a list of how we can give back to enrich the lives of those who are not as fortunate as we. You can pick the people, the charity or a person or group that has been there for you, and yes … give back this year.
Just around the corner before the end of 2016 we wish all our friends and neighbors, who celebrate Channukah and Christmas, a healthy, happy, loving and fun filled holiday and the same for the next 365 days in 2017.
