Visiting the cemetery

A friend of mine was in Israel over the past few days for the Yarzheit of his father, the plan was that we'd meet up at the cemetery so he can daven mincha and do Kaddish next to the grave.

I got there a few minutes and early,and he was running a few minutes late, so I had about 30 or 40 minutes where I was just chilling at the cemetery, I decided to visit Paul Kohn, since he was at the same place, but I had no idea what one does at while hanging out by a grave. Luckily I have a tehillim app, so I said random tehillim, but I didn't know if there are specific ones to say, or random ones work. Then I thought about Paul for a minute, and I was done.

After that I just sat around on a bench for the next half hour waiting for my friend to show up wondering if there is anything else that I should do.

Car keys

After doing most of the dishes on Motzei Shabbat, it was time to go play ball, I went to get the keys from their usual spot an dboth sets were missing. I asked Nat where hers were and she said if they werem't on the door, they should be in her purse. They weren't. I started to stress, and then I realized that my keys were in my backpack, I grabbed them, ran out to the car and went to enter my car security code.

The buttons didn't light up or beep, which was weird, so I went to put my keys in the ignition and see if it would start just because I hit the correct buttons. That when I discovered there were already keys in the ignition, and they security code wasn't lighting up because my battery is dead.

I can't remember if I had to turn the keys to the off position when I took out the keys, but I have to assume that they we turned a half click, and that's what drained my battery. I wish I had a good excuse, like I had to run out of the car and do something urgent. But I don't, I took the kids out on Friday for a few minutes, and when we came home, I somehow got out of the car and didn't turn it off.

Sarra's Greek :)

Shlomo's cousin sent him this:
He had just spent some time in the Septuagint (Targum shivim), and in the Greek targum “שרה” is spelled Σάρρα – two Greek “rho” in the middle with no final “h”

a single star

I was lying on my air mattress staring up through the mesh ceiling, and I saw one lone star looking down on me. I had the strangest thought, if I woke and a laser had cut everything in half, I would know exactly what happened, that star was a really a really high laser beam. Then I noticed that if I stared at the star for a few seconds I would get double vision, and see two stars, which looked like angry eyes glaring down at me.
Good time while camping
