Bat Mitzvah

Tara and I were honored guests at Liana's bat mitzvah today.

Liana did a marvelous job, as did her brother Daniel, her dad Russ (friend and Fuller Schooler), her mom Deb (who also used to hang out with Ed, especially after June died), other family and teachers.

After the service, we confabbed at a nearby Embassy Suites. "Confabbed" means dinner and dancing in this case.

Deb had me strategically seated between her DC-based bro and a Falls Church family, so I could happily engage in beltway banter about the EPA and VOA.

I passed on to Daniel the cool inside-outing ball, a gift to me from Glenn Stockton.
