Jacky's 80th Birthday
5am - My oldest and dearest friend!
My Cousin Jacky and I lived across the street from each other when we both were babies. We are 9-months apart in our birthdays. We were both born in the same year, 1937. Jacky in February. Myself in November.
We both attended City Terrace Elementary School together. In the huge field behind Jacky's home in Monterey Park CA, I hunted down my first bird with my Benjamin air rifle. We were around each other at family parties.
In 2008, our long planned for trip to Israel happened. We both travelled all over Israel together. Seeing Israel. Visiting our Israeli family members.
Today we will be celebrating Jacky's 80th birthday together.
