(FYI: Morty is known as "Alex" to everyone who has met him since he enlisted in the Army Air Corps at 17 years old in 1942).
We also visited with Ruth's and my dear machatonim, Becky and Jeff Miller, who kindly hosted us at their home in Sarasota.
In the Passover Haggadah, there is a prayer that includes the words "and we thank the Almighty for the thousands and thousands and myriads and myriads of goodly occasions that Holy One, Blessed be G-d, bestowed upon our selves and our ancestors."
This was one of those goodly occasions.
