January 2017 was marked our official entrance in the train of wisdom-Chuck has turned sixty with grand celebration gathering friends and family all over the country. The abundance of mesages of love and sweet memories was overwhelming. The highlight was of course a surprise visit by Chuck’s parent Ed an Jane who as always brought with them energy and good luck. Full family gathering at our favorite Gainesville restaurant Mildred’s Big City, the home of infamous Vesper Martini, created a memory for the next decade.
Family and friends all over the country have helped me to put together surprise movie for Chuck-filled with images, audio and video messsages for his Big Sweet 60 Bday. The local crowd has filled out house with laughter and good music to enjoy sweet parfume of brisket and ribs from the Big Lee’s Barbecue and good old scotch and bourbon collection. We live to deliver on longevity and healthy food!
After a week of work in ICU we packed luggages, youngsters (Eddie and Nino) and “older kids” (Emel who just graduated from UF!) and set to fly for family voyage to Hawaii and Annual Meeting of Society of Critical Care Medicine at Hilton Hawaiian Village.
