Brunch in Brentwood Aug 4, 2007

We located Mike Lager through his brother Richard (but that's another story) on Thursday; Gary Nestle had been traveling, but called Friday as soon as he saw my email; and we got together on Saturday. Mike came down from Encino, Gary came up from Huntington Beach, and we had breakfast, appropriately, at N.Y. Bagel. We were joined by Mike's friend Judy (in the turquoise), my sister-in-law Judy (in the blue) and my brother Les (behind the camera) who taught Mike when he was a Fellow in Cardiology at UCLA Medical Center nearly 35 years ago, and who hadn't seen him since. So it was quite the wonderful reunion with some very special people. [click on either photo to enlarge]
