While the food is cooking and I get ready for Shabbat, I was thinking of what a wonderful time I had last night.

Let's see...Bubbie Channah and Tsiril are first cousins. Nechama is her daughter. Frummie is Nechama's daughter. So that makes Frummi my (I don't know how many) cousin.

Well, mazal tov! Mazal tov! Frummie got engaged and last night was the engagement party. Bubbie Channah and I went and we had the most wonderful time.

The people were wonderful. The groom and his family seem like such wonderful people. Old Spharadi family who originally were from Iran but have been in Israel for generations. Nice nice nice.

Where I was sitting I could see through the mehiztzah (the wooden barricade that separated the men from the women) and My Cousin Sheldon, the Dentist (Tsiril's husband) was sitting across from me smiling from ear to ear.

The room was fraylach (happy happy happy). The food was gorgeous. The people were beaming and as I walked out I hoped that the happiness and joy that filled that room would follow the new couple throughout their lives. Amen.

Nice to watch people you love happy.

Shabbat shalom.

Have a good day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

Sounds like a lot of fun, Marallyn . . . and I am always up for good food.

The only problem would be the mehiztzah. I am known for going into the women's restroom because I am not paying attention. So, I'd probably get thrown out of the party without a chance to eat.

. . . okay, now I'm sad . . . and hungry.

Shabbat shalom.
