Nu, Chevrah how was Tisha B'av?

Notes on Tisha B'av 5771

Fast:
Easy. I really wasn't hungry or thirsty all day. Just tired.

Insights:
None [Or at least nothing to top this] And this remains the ultimate all time best Tisha B'av post ever written

Moments
When I was a kid, we broke fast on Entemmans cakes, Shop Rite vegetable soup from a can, and scrambled eggs. Mid-afternoon, I asked my wife what she had planned (as if I didn't know) and upon hearing the menu (Same as always: Home made potato soup, lecho, home-made pastries), said "You know that's exactly what my mom used to make." (Wives love hearing that. Try it and see!) To which she replied, "Old Navy [points at me] Brooks Brothers [points at herself]" Score one for the wife!

Kids:
Stayed out of the way. The young ones are easy, and the big ones fast. I think I'm past the stage of life in which kids harass you on fast days. Sigh. Sunrise, sunset.

How long was shachris:
Forever and a day. Long time readers know how much I love Yom Kippur prayers, but I can't stand Tisha B'av morning. Its far and away the worst service of the year. The dirges make no sense, and drone on forever, and please don't even think about suggesting some hippy, do-gooder, minyam where the Rabbi's bright-eyed assistant delivers a boring introduction to selected Kinot. Such introductions are never insightful, and make a terrible service even less palatable.

Kinah for Gush Katif?
No

Kinah for holocaust?
Yes [Those who end the liturgical tour of Jewish tragedy at Chelminiki, yet also hold that Yom Hashoa is wrong because "we have tisha b'av" have, in Ricky's immortal words, some 'splainin' to do.]

Movies
Operation Thunderbolt
Abba Eben's Narcissistic Tour of His Own Life, as Narrated to PBS, Part 6

Break fast:
Same as always: Potato soup, lecho, home-made pastries.

How'd things go for you? (Or to put it in the jargon of the blogosphere, I'm "tagging" all of you.")

To get the best product type never make your choice with first
product or store you see, but you should check several fishing kayaks for sale and try to get appropriate offer.
Are you looking for a stable casting platform or a sleek, fast-moving boat to chase
blitzing fish. Fishing kayaks are best for fisherman, and are equipped with built in shade, benches for storing accessories and
fishing rods, and storage.
