The fun never seems to stop in
Fair Harbor... thanks to all who received my new column with such warm and
gracious comments... I appreciate all the wonderful feedback.
Well cloudy, rainy skies gave way
to windy sunshine on Saturday for FairHarbor's annual
BBQ on the Plaza... It was a great afternoon as over 200 residents and friends
alike turned out for this annual event, (was it the 3rd or 4th annual? no one
could remember) The event has numerous sponsors, thanks to all who
Anyway, munching on hot dogs and
hamburgers were Wells and Gail Newell, as well as the entire family of Bob
Kerr... who's baby Bob was kissed by this columnist's favorite daughter,
Heather Mc Donald... wonder where all those shirts came from, what a great
idea!!!!!!!!!!!!! Making a grand entrance was Cora
Reynolds... in the arms of her dad, Brendon...
Kim, who's a bit bleary eyed, is the proud mom.
Aside from the entertainment
provided by the many volunteers who flipped burgers and hotdogs, and
shucked enough corn (laid end to end, would stretch back to NYC)--Frick and Frack were there, as well as Neal --there was music and
singing... again Elm creeps in... Russ was there, but where was
Ellen...probably home with their newest family member...
Our BBQ capped a very lovely
weekend, where Fair Harbor held their annual Rosh Hoshanah service at the Old Firehouse on Thursday morning.... As usual, Dr. Sam Mann
officiated as Belinda Tarter sang... it was a moving and inspirational way to
New Year. Afterward, the Elm gang gathered at the Rich house for their
annual dinner... served on time!!! with a special guest from Seattle, Oregon,
welcome to Anita's cousin Richard.
I have to answer the burning
question of who the "blonde bombshell on Elm" was, who was seen
sharing a cocktail with Carl.. it was none other than my 82 year old Aunt
Pauline from Hoboken, New Jersey!!! As usual, Carl was his charming self
and made my aunt feel like a kid again, thanks Carl!!
Who was seen installing a new
bathroom in his house??? Seems the house that Jaffe (that's Bob) built is
never quite finished, thanks for the pointers for my renovation.
And while I'm on the subject of Jaffes, DJ, brother on Holly, is writing his memoirs of his
and Rose's round the world trip and shopping for a publisher... If you are an
interested publisher, you can contact Mr. Jaffe via this webzine.
As the days get shorter and the
nights get cooler, we in Fair Harbor, have always enjoyed this bonus season...
It may not be summer, but the sky is clear, the sun is good and the ocean, well
the ocean is always the star of this show in my book.
More to come... as we look
forward to finally closing up after the summer of 2007.
