The Flag is at Half Mast

The Great Plotnik World Headquarters flag is at half mast today because Doris Lederman passed away yesterday. Doris is the mom of faithful Plotnikkie J (of J and J Seattle) and nobody who ever met her could have possibly had any opinion other than "Dang! What a super nice lady!"

When we were all a little younger and everyone still lived in Stiletto City, Doris's house was where you went for delicious meals and lots of laughs with her and her husband Harry, who has been gone now for several years. Plottie really enjoyed those evenings.

So on we go. At least Doris's passing was sudden -- it's harder on the suprised people who are left, but of course a lot easier for everyone in the long run.

So Plotnik sends Doris a, he has to amend that. Doris Lederman was one of these woman who you don't hug, she hugs you. No air kisses here. She was big, and busty, and when she pulled you in there for one of those "It's sure great to see YOU!" hugs, you didn't get away easily. But who wanted to? Getting hugged by Doris let you know there is still a lot of love in the world, and it's right here and right now.

This time passing business is no fun. Judy, thanks for this wonderful photo. It looks like she's just in the other room, with that big smile, waiting for us to come in and say hi.
