See You Next Week!


I just wanted to let you’all  know that you probably won’t see me here again until next week.

Unlike many “netizens” of the virtual world, I have real “friends” and family.  This old man gets invited to every holiday occasion, every birthday, wedding, anniversary, every first communion.

Once a year I like to reciprocate.

Easter is my holiday and it has been for the past decade.  This Sunday I will have 18 family members and friends at my place.  My eldest daughter and her husband will be driving in from the Florida east coast and my youngest and her man will be here as well.  Their aunts, uncles and cousins and few close friends will be here for our traditional Easter.

We will eat too much, drink a few and for those of us so inclined, smoke some fine cigars out on the lanai.

So I will be busy at real life this week and will be gone from net.  I  will see you all next week.

I’ve had almost 19,000 hits on this blog from almost 100 countries this past year.  I appreciate every one of you for taking your precious time to stop by and read me.

Best wishes for Easter and peace in your lives.



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
