best of times ...

Posted by GuMan Dec 30, 2007

Well you you know how the saying goes. Yesterday was Grace Ann Malloy's wedding. It was at the Kosciuszko Foundation on the East 65th street. It was kind if spooky walking in because the venue was directly across the street from the Pakistani Embassy. Because of the bombing, there was a heavy police presence there. Nevertheless, the wedding went really well.


Unfortunately, Hank Hummel had to be admitted into the hospital for a triple by-pass. The operation is going to be tomorrow, and we will probably be there to bring in the new year.

madison square garden

Posted by GuMan Dec 30, 2007

Last Friday our marketing department sends a note out asking if anyone is interested in the company box at Madison Square Garden. Not that there was anything interesting going on, but I figured it would be a good opportunity to get together with Betsy and Chris.

Once again Christmas was at Maureen's house.  We had a great time; of course Julia was the belle of the ball.

josee's world

Posted by GuMan Dec 28, 2007

Not only were we sick and overworked this holiday season, we didn't have much time to get together with friends. So far the only one was the evening with Betsy & Chris. However, Josee came through with a quick drink up just before Christmas.

lit tree

Posted by GuMan Dec 28, 2007

Since I wrote about our unlit tree, I thought I would show you the final version.  Because of all the chaos going on in our lives, we didn't get around to doing this until the night of the 24th.

unlit tree - unwrapped presents

Posted by GuMan Dec 16, 2007

We have both been under the weather all week.  Thus, we are way behind on all our holiday chores.  Yesterday, we finally got a tree. It looked nice on the lot, but little did I realize that it weighed close to 120 lbs.  And, of course, I was the one who had to bring it home.  We got it set up but were too tired to decorate it.  Also, we are too tired to wrap all the presents.  So they just got piled up under the tree.



Since we are moving out of the apartment, our landlord has placed it on the market. Amazingly he has it listed at $1.2 million!  For our stinky little place! Anyone who would pay that is out of their mind - no matter who good the Euro exchange rate is.

dinner out

Posted by GuMan Dec 9, 2007

A couple of weeks ago Julie had brought some venison all the way from Minnesota. But there was way too much for us to just eat by ourselves - plus it just wouldn't be any good if it wasn't cooked on a grill.  Fortunately, Betsy is both a fan of venison and has a grill.  So yesterday found us in New Jersey.


In the morning Jo-Ann went out to go shopping for Christmas.  I followed in the afternoon with the fixins. That way it worked out for the both of us.

four score and five

Posted by GuMan Dec 8, 2007

Last Tuesday was my mother-in-law Mildred's 85th birthday.  So we told her we would take her to any restaurant she wanted.  She picked Servini's in Allendale.  So off we went to take her out to dinner.



Then over the weekend we got our first real snow but not much accumulation.



I then proceeded to get sick.  Being the good husband that I am I passed it along to my wife, who manages to get a more worse case of the the same bug.  We are finally getting over the bug.


A while back when life was much calmer, I had agreed to go give a talk on derivatives at a conference in Florida.  As luck would have it, that is next Monday.  Of course, I still have to write the presentation.  Looks like that will be my afternoon before I fly out tomorrow
