a wonderful invitation from dear friends Mel and Lettie Domatz-–

Let’s let Deb Wong explain:
“…Attached is a pic of our friends Letty & Mel Dolmatz. They are in their 80s now (Mel is 87), energetic and sharp. We know them from our membership in the Coastal Arts League (I am the secretary for CAL). They talked about when they met JFK, RFK, and Teddy Kennedy back in the ’60s…among other political luminaries. They have old photos that they took of the Kennedys. I could only counter that with my meeting with Hillary Clinton at a Democratic function in Redwood City back in 1992 (no photos -drat!), where I spent my time talking (mostly) to Ira Ruskin, and feasting on the table tidbits. I was one of the “Friends of Hillary Clinton”, and we had a banner saying that, when she arrived (briefly – she was touching base with many California towns stumping for her hubby). I was embarrassed as hell when the banner rolled out that read: “FREINDS OF HILLARY CLINTON”. At least it didn’t say “FIENDS of…” I didn’t make the banner. At least the cake had it spelled right.
