GREAT title Editor, snore. Yeah that’s the sentiment as we sleepwalk from Aug to Sept during the dog days of the ‘unofficial’ last week of summer. Which this year is really “unofficial” due to the first day of NYC public schools not occurring next week, which is unprecedented. Capisce?!?
That provides me with an extra week of loafing on Sergey’s yacht and Larry’s compound on Sardinia. The latter having already constructed a full replica of Temple Emanuel to ring in the New Year on Labor Day Eve to accommodate the unusual calendar of 2021. Capisce?!?
Meanwhile I continuously dribble this out to you between sips of champagne and bites of caviar while donning a toga and leaf crown. Summer’s over but the party never ends.
