This August, my grandfather Abe Curzer turned 100. That's right, he was born in 1914. We threw him a party, where he had a wonderful time and gracefully entertained all his friends. What an amazing person!
He received a letter from the White House congratulating him on his birthday:
This is the fourth year in a row that my wonderful friend Sandy has hosted a summer cookout at Compo Beach. He grew up in Westport, and his parents always graciously allow us to use their kitchen to prep for our barbecues. This year we did a seafood cookout, complete with shrimp, soft shell crab, and snapper. I baked a blueberry pie and Sandy's dad, Stanley, baked a peach pie. Then we finished with s'mores. Great day!
Last weekend, I went to a gathering hosted by one of my close friends at the beach near his house in Westport, CT. We got out of the city on a very hot day and had a great time swimming, sunning, and grilling on the beach. What a perfect way to spend a summer weekend!
