From Irwin Solow:
Hi Vince, thanks for thinking of me. I'm still kicking and living in Brooklyn. I've been seeing a woman for the last 4 years, so that keeps me busy. Technically the only thing I do is play with my iPhone. Thanksgiving will be a big shindig I got my grandkids coming in from California and my daughter and her husband from Florida.

I had lunch with Bruce and Irene Schiller and Dennis Belk recently - it was Les Moonves Pennsylvania farewell party. Bruce is still there - he wants to work till he's 70. I keep telling him there been a guarantee on lifespan since Moses, but he says he still likes being around all the new fangled things at work.
, Have you heard from Irwin or Tony lately ? Back in May, a group of us got together in Bernardsville ( Mary Lou/Ken, Bruce/Irene, Choi and myself ) and Choi persuaded Joe Symanski to come. He's now 86 but looked almost the same as the day he retired( although somewhat tanner ). It seems that the old Control group is now octogenarian - perhaps Bruce is right- who'll be the first centenarian?

I am now recovering very well from my third Heart Procedure No 1 was a stent placement in 2002, No 2 was a triple bypass in 2004, and on Jan 19 had a TAVR procedure (aortic valve replacement). Downside is that we cancelled a cruise scheduled tor early next month. however, should be in fine fettle for next cruise either later this year of early next year. Will go to a micro-luncheon with Cliff Rice after our winter residents return to their non-subtropical home sites. If y'all have any other happy news please submit it to our website. Also, my visual impairment has been stable for quite a few years and that the VA has introduced me to a lot of nice Visual Aids (toys to assist the little forward vision that remains). Jackie is also doing well, still full of P&V, allows me to play boss once in a while. Please note that the once in a while are growing much further apart. Lastly, congratulations to our 11 yo grandson who took GOLD in California JOAD competition for his age group. He also finished 4th in either national or inter-national competition, never got the story straight. JOAD is Junior Olympic Archery Development.
