Could my parents and grandparents have imagined the interesting people I've known and the incredible things I've been a party to?
For many years I celebrated this day with the Blechman family in their elegant Central Park West apartment.
One of my appearances there was documented by Lee Friedlander.
This is same room (with maybe the same camera) in which Lee Friedlander captured R. O. three decades earlier in this iconic photo.
Apparently, that was a mean cat.
