My younger son might have made a friend at the swim club this week.

Maybe.

I worked the polls for the June 25 special election for Queens DA (and a few judgeships).

Here is the fourth and final part of my trek to Denver.

It's on to the actual bat mitzvah itself, and some of the aftermath on Sunday morning. One more episode to go!

I can now tell you, having recorded the third portion that follows this installment, that my Denver saga will run across FOUR podcasts. Yes, I will talk for TWO HOURS about events that happened over a 48-hour period. So bear with me!

Traveled to Denver last weekend for a bat mitzvah.

Apologies for the audio early on; I restarted my computer and fixed the sound.
