Yes, that's me with a red beard standing behind my mother. My brother, Dr. Robert E. Droleskey, is to my left, standing behind my father. The photograph of the photograph was taken in the home of my Uncle Billy and Aunt Bertha on Friday, March 20, 2009.

It's an excellent sketch of my maternal grandfather by adoption.

On Chase's first birthday, Thursday, April 2, 2009. No, I haven't been to a baseball game since I walked out of the now-demolished William A. Shea Municipal Stadium in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York, on Tuesday, July 16, 2002.
