The Envelope Stuffer

There have been plenty of ups and downs for Eddie’s mom since she lost her husband Hesh two-and-a-half weeks ago, and everybody in the family is doing lots of adjusting fast.

For all the emotional confusion and practical changes she’s been forced to go through, though, one thing has been crystal clear for some time: Evelyn likes life in the Berkshires more than she ever liked life in Florida. West Palm Beach air, she says, is murder on her arthritis.

So she’s staying with Eddie and Lulu and me for now.

Never one to mooch, however, she insists on chipping in on whatever tasks we toss her way. For example, as the photo above shows, helping to stuff envelopes for one of Eddie’s projects has put her in a great mood this evening.

And yesterday she helped me fold copies of the North County Perp in preparation for my little ‘zine’s big launch party tomorrow.

Speaking of which, here’s a link to reporter Jennifer Huberdeau’s article about my Perp project that ran in today’s North Adams Transcript.
