Rehab was really tough, think Mario is trying to kill me.


Did a little chipping and putting got tired quickly need to work on getting stronger


Going to hit golf balls on Friday after rehab, spoke to Mario says he thinks I should ask doctor but doesn't think it will be an issue.


MGCC was pretty empty last night won a few bucks playing gin. Pasta night is getting very boring, I had a BLT for dinner


Saw Craig at gym he got back from Aruba last night.

Fw: Fwd: Who doesn't love golf

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah actually means "Head of the Year." Just like the head controls the body, our actions on Rosh Hashanah have a tremendous impact on the rest of the year.
As we read in the Rosh Hashanah prayers, each year on this day "all inhabitants of the world pass before God like a flock of sheep," and it is decreed in the heavenly court "who shall live, and who shall die ... who shall be impoverished and who shall be enriched; who shall fall and who shall rise."

Rosh Hashanah begins Wednesday , Have a good holiday 

Congratulations Steve Mauer another championship

Rehab has been going well, thanks for all the well wishes. If orthopedic doc says okay may attempt playing late October.

I have had a bad habit of not looking closely at my club bill. Just a bad thing to do 

Can't believe October is right around the corner. The posting season is coming to a close.

Glad to see that we didn't change pasta night while I was out, it is the same boring event it was before I had surgery. 

Two wrongs do not make a right. 

Golf is an honorable sport, we police ourselves. 

Halloween as a big kid it is a holiday that I enjoy.

tough two days

Friday was Gail's wake really tough, today was the funeral. Mass at SJV but the interment was in East Hanover about 40 minites. These things are never easy. Repast was nicely done simple but ample in Clark. Saw a lot of folks that I hadn't seen in a while.


I am going to the gym just to ride bike and get a little stretching in.


Rehab yesterday was hard, Mario says I push too much and run out of steam. Gave me some tips to stretch my hamstrings, they are too tight.

What I would like in the retirement housing:


  • 2 bedroom or 1 bedroom with a den on one floor prefer rental but will buy if absolutely necessary
  • 2 full baths
  • Small kitchen
  • Washer and dryer
  • Utility inclusive
  • All maintenance
  • Weekly cleaning services
  • Onsite medical assistance
  • Proximity to major health care ( RWJ/Barnabus, Meridian, etc)
  • Onsite health club facility
  • Common area with a party room
  • Activity schedule
  • Access to small on site convenience store
  • Public transportation to shopping would be nice
  • Convenient parking
  • Access to family


I am still capable of driving but night driving is becoming harder. I would like access to golf but not a dealer killer. I need to be able to get my affairs in order from an expense side. The Colonia house has infrastructure issues which in the next three to four years will be very expensive.


Dr. Sharma is in Edison. Dr. Spiler is in Old Bridge. Dr. Wilkes is in Manhattan. Dr. Igles is in Brick. Dr. Yaremczak is in Woodbridge. Dr. Closkey is in Toms River. So we will need to travel no matter where we live. We travel to Doctors now.

Went to rehab, Mario was off so Christina took over. 15 minutes on bike, did all exercises plus one new one. 
Went to see homestead, Rae wants to be able to serve 13, she will never be happy. 

Went to Cracker Barrell in Hamilton for lunch. 

Went to Dr Sergie her leg is all better, vaccaro for desert for the mauriello family. Stopped to see how they were doing. Poor Rae had to stay home alone. 
She asked me what time tomorrow for Dr Spiller I said I had it on my calendar for 10. Was told that was impossible? She called but too late, finally she found the appointment card 1015, I was wrong. It happens

She just told me that geneen agrees with her about homestead. 

Went to club played cards

Deja Vu

Rae's very good friend Gail passed away. She has been sick for a while.

Went to gym. Edison family restaurant for lunch. Then to Walmart Edison got Rae scooter and then I went to the Metuchen library. Picked her up (2 hours) then home. Now at 726 we are at Avenue so she can pay her bill. I am afraid that I am destined to the same routine going forward, I hate waiting hours at a time while she rides around stores.

Thank God she finally realized that going to mauriello house tonight was a bad idea.

Past week

Orthopedic doctor suggested I take a longer stride, no short steps or shuffling ( not easy to change). Also, try walking more upright. 
Saturday night had dinner at bertucci very competent waitress and nice to. Joe had a coupon saved 25% a pleasant surprise. 
Went to Monmouth park for birthday party, nice day but long and uneven ground to walk on
Good to see fratterolos 
I think I have had hurricanes coverage, too much information glad irma is moving in land
Getting dressed now and going for coffee and rehab
