Twice Chai

The Balabusta is turning thirty-six tomorrow.

There's a story about the Besht I recall from somewhere, that a crazy lady came up to him at a marketplace and told him that he would have great powers, but that he couldn't reveal then until he was thirty-six. He told her to keep quiet about that.

I doubt the Balabusta is going to be quite that big, but I do have some hope that this will be the year in which I grow into some of what I'm supposed to be and do. We shall see.

In the meantime, still job hunting. Also, Mr. Bluejeans Sr. is having some health problems--tehillim, rosaries, prayers, white light and good thoughts gratefully accepted. I'll give more details if I get permission.

Hope everyone had a glorious Fourth. The Balabusta and the Balebos celebrated by watching part of the John Adams miniseries. Much fun!

My favorite Besht story is the one where he fights a werewolf.

Hope you had a nice birthday.

Incidentally, I've been student teaching for the past year, and am finding it hard but rewarding. I take strength from reading your blog and seeing that it is indeed possible to stay in it without losing all of ones marbles.
