Randomly surfing today - saw Brad and Jacqueline on Mass. Ave. last evening in their ~1994 Jaguar which is in great condition. They invited me in out of the light rain. First time surrounded by the mobile leather and walnut. The standard greeting "how is it going?" inevitably leads to my shocking answer (at least for some). This lead to a drive in the Jag and a late dinner with a lot of conversation. Highly energizing - no time to lie in bed thinking of mortality (which happens every night anyway).
Forgot spelling of Jacqueline - so googled and linked to Jackie Kennedy on wikipedia which led to her cancer and then to a list of notables with non-Hodgkin lymphoma which includes some baseball players - most recently Jon Lester - RedSox pitcher (sore back>diag) and Andrés Galarraga - MLB (1st baseman) - 399 home runs, nickname El Gran Gato (sore back>diag).
