TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF

Dear Al,

Once again you are facing a titan's task alone but a door closes/another opens may be in the works.

I am concerned for the relentless pressure on your health matters.  We would rather have much less of you and savor what we get when we get it---who cares if it's late?

Your reflections as always are of great value. Thanks for being and offering so much to all.

You spoke of the unease you felt in the tunnels, bridges and stations.  I personally never set foot in Manhattan again after the '93 attack on the WTC.

I went to Long Island via Staten Island.  So I'm paranoid, but I have since contented myself with New York newspapers and reports from my relatives about all the good stuff I've been missing. No regrets.

My nephew is a NY police Captain and was here last Thursday.  Believe me that our media has sanitized the coverage.

Many love and need you. I don't believe that you take care of yourself for you so please do so for your family and friends.

Al,

Here is a little true story I wrote up for Luke's site. He seemed to enjoy it.

Most of my affluent Jewish friends have servants, usually hispanics. Many of them have live-in Central American maids who cook and clean and look after the kids. I wondered if this was more of a Jewish thing as I don't see this as often with non-Jews?

I don't believe living well is necessarily a Jewish thing. I would have a cast of thousands taking care of me if I could afford it. What I have are Mexicans mowing the lawn every two weeks. That is a must in Texas where the temperature is in the high 140s most of the year.

I had a Filipina housekeeper who would come every other Friday to clean my place. She would stay over in the guest room and the next day I'd drive her to her aunt's stall at the Fiesta Food mart. It was working out well. One night we both had some wine and I boinked her. I thought, wow! this is great. For only sixty bucks I get my house cleaned and my ashes hauled. The next Friday she wanted eighty bucks but I still figured it was quite a bargain. After I upped her salary she only wanted to drink wine, eat pizza and fuck, no cleaning. It wasn't a good deal anymore. Fortunately it wasn't long before she met some guy on the Internet and flew off to Detroit to live with him. They got hitched.

Now I have a married Mexican woman whose husband looks like Osama Bin Rivera. He drops her off and gives me threatening looks. She cleans, I pay and there is no talk of sex. It is much better. The moral of the story is to let the hired help do what they are paid to do. Don't drink wine with them.
