Things last week were really at loose ends, all of a sudden everything went on the blink (including me, my blood pressure was way too low).  Lost tax return, fridge dying, voice mail not working.  Now things are starting to right themselves, not the fridge, though, too bad, I don't relish buying a new one.  But two watches that I bought for my birthday in Cheap Joey's tschotchkele store, which stopped running half an hour after I bought them, suddenly sprung to life and are soldiering on.  My long ago painting teacher, the artist Joseph Stefanelli, liked to say, Where there’s still life there’s hope.
