Deleted this accidentally, recreating from memory.
Attended baptism of little 2nd cousin Gabriel Ordway at an Armenian Catholic church. Was amazed at how much like an excorcism it was -“Devil get thee behind me” and “These four points of the cross keep the evil one at bay.” Afterwards into the Cupertino hills for celebration, hanging out with old cousins, etc. Maya and Dan are off to Egypt with Gabriel in a few days. Will miss them.
Dan found some old pictures at grandma’s, including these of me and my mom, circa 1964. I looked so goofy, I wonder if my parents thought I’d turn out “special.” My mom was a cutie – no wonder my dad had a crush on her.
