I trained at the gym , and then had a massage from Tennie at EMH.
We went to our friend Dave and Sherries for a holiday get together. His cousin Monika was there with her parents from the Czech Republic/Slovakia – they spoke no English.
I tried Russian, and they understood some – Monika especially.
Dave’s father came over to the USA in the early 20th century, and his brothers – who stayed behind – survived (through wit and grit) the holocaust.
Her father talked (through Monika) about their trials and tribulations.
