Mel and Rebecca Weinberg were in Chicago visiting both of their kids, who live here.  Their son, Nathan, works for ATT is single.  His sister Naomi is married with two young kids and lives in Brookfield.  We usually get together with Mel and Rebecca for lunch/brunch, but more often for dinner’ sometimes their family joins us. 

This time we had dinner at a nice little French Bistro on East Chestnut called “Le Petit Paris.”  Two of the shots are in the restaurant and three are outside, just down the street in front of a cool sculpture. 

Mel is a nearly completely retired physician who specialized in infectious diseases in Tucson, where they’ve lived for many years.  Rebecca is also a “nearly retired” family therapist.  They both look great and we have a really nice time seeing them every year or so.

 Jerry and Beth Brodkin were in town for some family events, a bat mitzvah, a family reunion and to see us and the Rosenstons (two days later – Rosenston is recuperating from foot surgery and is limited in his travels for a while.)  We had lots of nice conversation with Beth and Jerry.

Dinner with Ro (Rowie Schar) Lebedow and her partner of 20+ years, Curt Snodgrass.  Ro and I talk and see each other for lunch from time to time.  She and Curt have a place in Harbert, MI, and live in the city in a great condo in the Bucktown neighborhood – there’s a fab view of the downtown skyline, looking SE from their deck.  The night we were there for dinner, it was very overcast and rainy, so my skyline pics are not too cool.  Ro has been in the real estate business for 20+ years, selling mostly condos in the downtown area. 

Late last Fall, she was diagnosed with uterine cancer and has spent much of the past year dealing with it.  Surgery, chemo, radiation, being enrolled in a clinical trial, with a new biological, at the U. of Chicago—the whole nine yards.  But, most wonderfully, she has responded to the treatments extremely well, and right now shows no signs of abnormal cells or tumors that can be detected.  She is off chemo but is still on the biological.  Her hair is growing back (it’s not even ¼” yet), and she looks, acts, and sounds great.  She is planning on being at our 55th next May 6th.
