||It is now two weeks after my 60th birthday.
I have decided to mark the beginning of my second half of life by inviting my closest family and
friends to a relaxing time on the Tel Aviv Bugrashov Beach. It was a lovely fun event at which my
dear children have prepared a very special greeting card, which they have presented to me there,

It so happened that I have spent most of my Birthday at the ER with my parents due to urological
problems my father developed. In the afternoon we have hospitalized him for further observation
and treatments. My dear brother spent the night next to our father’s bed, while I was lucky to have
had a nice BD-Dinner at a restaurant with Dalia and Ophir’s family. It was just fabulous.
The whole week and weekend were dedicated to our father. He was released from hospital on
Monday, and is back home now. We are all exhausted. Thank God it is summer vacation now, and I
have more available time to provide help to my parents.
Today I helped my father take a shower and planted some new flowers in their pots on the balcony.
