Happy Birthday, John! I'm so glad you came to the 75th "bash." It was so great to see you again.

Happy birthday, Jim, from a classmate who had the good fortune to sit at your table at our 50th reunion. I see you now love in Milwaukee. My husband and I just moved to Greenfield a week ago. What are you up to?

I don't know how many wakes Milwaukee's mayor, Tom Barrett, attends, but he was at Peppy's. And he stayed for quite a while too. But that isn't surprising in that he was the one who proclaimed "Priscilla A. O'Neill Day" in Milwaukee in 2013. It was great to meet Kate, Miles and Hugh and to see the hundreds of photos and other articles that were meaningful to her. She was truly sui generis.

Hi Jim. I was trying to think of something I could do to honor your birthday AND I came up with it! I'm listening to Big Band music.(Sure would like to listen to you play). SOOOO - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I actually feel that listening to (and playing) Big Band keeps us young, so keep on keeping on. Hope your day was great!

Seeing as how my birthday is nigh, I thought the time way past due for coming clean about the darker moments of my Bradford years. (For once, I thought I'd beat Buzzfeed to the punch!)

Tim lived about three blocks from my house, and we walked to and from St. Mark's School together, if memory serves, from 1st or 2d Grade through 8th.  The walks always seemed to pass more quickly when Tim was along, and I'm sure all who knew him valued his company and lament his passing.  I have to add him to the list of people I wish I had kept in touch with but, sadly, didn't.  R.I.P., Tim.

One of my musician friends, the great jazz trumpet player-educator Bobby Shew, just returned from a U.K. tour, during which he gigged with Welsh pianist Dave Cottle, who couldn't resist having a little fun with the current occupant of our Oval Office. So Dave sent this to Bobby and me, and I think people of all ideological persuasions will get a chuckle out of it. Oh, and in addition to being a clever fellow and most talented jazz pianist, Dave has a matchless literary pedigree--he is the grandson of Dylan Thomas!!! And although the editor in me wants to carp at misspellings like "mysogyny" (instead of "misogyny'), I'll gladly give Dave a pass on this one, even though he'd probably like to hide behind the "British spelling" dodge (albeit it is not applicable in this case). But I'm sure that he, like many of us, believe that the clothes have no emperor!
