As several of you already know, February was a hectic month for us, since I was unexpectedly asked to attend my eldest daughter’s first wedding held in Nairobi, Kenya. Why Kenya? My son-in-law, a world renown pediatric surgeon, is of Indian descent, with much of his family still residing in eastern Africa. So, the first of two weddings was held on February 15th to honor his parents, family and friends, and required the couple to follow all of the rituals associated with a Hindu wedding. Strange as it may sound, the affair even came complete with a contingent of Masai warriors, who demonstrated their prowess at jumping in place and doing their nation proud.
Having said that, Linda, a soon-to-become trauma surgeon, and her husband are preparing for their second nuptials, which will be held here in New York City later this month. Its a blessed time for all of us here at The Motor Pool, with people from around the world coming in for the event. Needless to say, we’re putting the finishing touches on our end of the festivities, which has taken some time away from our already busy schedule. Frankly, I don’t foresee any problems attending to all of the myriad issues that arise from running an e-commerce-based business, but will certainly let everyone know if anything develops. As always, we thank you for your support and hope you understand if things slow down a bit for us as the wedding nears.
Update: We’re all particularly proud of Linda who just made the front page of the New York Times (April 2nd, 2013). As first author on a published article in a trauma journal, the article was cited in the Times even if Linda’s name was strangely absent. The article was also cited on NPR radio. Well done!
