A Blessing for your head...

A hearty Mazel Tov! to my Nephew Justin on becoming a Bar Mitzvah. The service was wonderful and the Cantor was amazing. The Rabbi said a nice healing prayer for me as well, when my parents and I were called to the Bimah for the pre/post Torah blessings. Touching moment.

Floyd couldn't sit quiet/still (surprise, surprise) so Heather took him out to play with the iPad 10 minutes into the service. Fortunately they pipe the audio out into the lobby/concourse so Heather heard every word.

Today: visit with the Spike's (day) and Justin's party (night). Tomorrow: family brunch and fly home.

BMT news: Got the official word: I'm being admitted to UCSF on Tuesday at 9:30a. Let the games begin.
