The Good Life

Country Club

Mailed from Havana in 1949 with a message that reads in part, “Dear Grandaughter Bonnie, We are in the sunny south farther away from Wichita… Saw little chicken with string tied to its leg & more holding string. Be good.”

Sure as Hell

“Death is a part of life. My mother would tell us children, ‘If you don’t want to leave here, you better not come here.’ Sure as hell you come, sure as hell you go.”

— Buddy Guy quoted in “Holding the Note” by David Remnick, The New Yorker, March 11, 2019
