Hey now Rippers! I’m going to give a nod to my Jewish side and share what the Jewish High Holidays we just had are about. This is when we’re to pray to God for forgiveness for whatever sins and awful stuff we did during the past year. It’s Jewish Confession if you will. On Rosh Hashanah it is written. On Yom Kippur it is sealed.TO THOSE I HAVE WRONGED I ASK FORGIVENESS. TO THOSE I HELPED I WISH I DID MORE. TO THOSE I NEGLECTED I ASK FOR UNDERSTANDING. TO THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED ME I SINCERELYTHANK YOU. There. Shmaltzy enough? Now let’s have some fun!
Two older ladies from Brooklyn, Gladys and Edna, recently moved to Miami Beach. Their husbands played a lot of golf while the ladies mostly explored Collins Ave. to get a feel for the place. They quickly learned which corner they could always find a bus on to take them to different parts of the area. One day they boarded a bus that said HIALEAH PARK. They’d never heard of it. When they arrived and got off the bus Gladys said it must be some kind of zoo. “I see horses and ducks with long necks. What else could this be?” She decided to investigate further so she asked Edna to stay there while she took a quick walk around. She came back to where she left Edna and said, “Hey! They race these horses and we can bet on who we think will win!” They both went closer to what appeared to be a track, surveyed the field, excitedly “ponied up” – sorry – $1each, and put it on a horse they picked at random. Needless to say they lost. “It’s for the best.” said Edna calmly. “After all. What would we do with a horse?”OY GEVALT! Silver. Out. L’shana tova Gang!
