Dr. Blake and I and our new friend Simon whom we met on board our recent Windstar cruise around Sicily and Malta. Jay and I were in the outdoor hot tub, Simon joined us, we became friends in an instant. (As a testament to how much we like him, I'm posting this photo in which both he and Jay look much better than I do -- in spite of my old tricks of covering my sagging chin, wearing sunglasses at all times and always opting for back-lighting.) Simon is an emergency room doctor in Sydney and, in between silly showbiz stories, was able to share some welcome advice with us about Jay's unexpected bout of gout. We're hoping our paths will cross again either here in Boston or there in Australia.
