One of my oldest friends Devra shown below at a reunion lunch on the far right with the print loose blouse suffered a major stroke. We have known each other since high school. We are all very shook up and praying for her recovery.
Life is scary sometimes.

The photograph above was taken by Devra's brother Ed Caraeff at the Newsroom Cafe.
"Chef Eddie J"
"It was recently the 40th anniversary of Monterey Pop, the California festival that brought artists such as Jimi Hendrix and Laura Nyro to the world’s attention. That’s where my dear friend Ed Caraeff, then 15 years old, took what Jann Wenner once called “the most famous rock ‘n roll photo ever” of Hendrix setting his guitar on fire.
Eddie, who went on to a successful photography career and is now an equally successful LA chef, was honored at the anniversary celebration for his work, and is shown here standing next to the photo display. Way to go, Eddie!"
