A Lucky Number?

Lara was born on 7/7/70 at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. At the time my first wife and I had been married seven years and seven months. On 7/7/77 Bully, my stepfather, took me to the Thistledown Race Track in Cleveland, Ohio. I placed a bet on the seventh horse in the seventh race. It was a long shot, but it came in first by two and a half lengths. I brought back about $475, which I split with Lara. Since then the number has not been particularly lucky, either for Lara or for me. Maybe that will change this coming Sunday.

im going to see 77 drummers perform for 77 minutes starting at 7pm under the brooklyn bridge on 7/7/7! I hope something good happens. You know, besides the show.

Good luck with that, daddy-o!

Luck? Luck? What in the world is THAT?

Ah, of course. All these years of reading and I didn't know/remember that you had a daughter.

Perfectly understandable, inasmuch I haven't written about her for a very long time. Birthdays have a way of reminding me!
