Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/11/2018)

Only a couple of days until I make my first voyage to Singapore, which I hear is just an absolutely gorgeous country. As excited as I am, being away for a week, especially from my little dog Charli, is tough. But at least the wifey is coming on the trip with me. Happy Mother’s Day to all the baby mamas who read the blog! My “old man” softball team that I joined this year is now undefeated at 4 wins and 0 losses, and I’ll brag a little bit about how my bat and leg speed is better than I thought. However, at this age, the soreness is a bitch!
