49. Did you know that it was Tisha B'Av?

Heck, relatively few people have even heard of it. It's not such a big deal even among Jews that I knew in Jersey. Yeah, they know it's there. But they were ham sandwich Jews.They eat ham sandwiches during Passover, but go to a seder and some fall high day services because it's a family-and-friends thing. Like my brother's family for Xmas--the one day of the year he'd darken a church entrance. He liked the music.


I don't know that anybody I know in Houston would even know what 9 Av is. Every summer, late July or early August, I sort of remember it's in here some place. It wanders around this time of year. Like Rosh hashanah or Yom kippur. In a month or so I'll look up when they are so I can ask for days off for them. I don't do Av 9. I'm not Jewish.

I'd like Sukkoth off, though, but will content myself with just the first and last days and hope I don't get sick during the year.
