Osvaldo Vicente Centeno

June 15, 1937 —


Osvaldo doesn’t come to Lo de Celia very often, so when he did two months ago, I took this photo.  We danced the Troilo tanda, his favorite.  It’s been years since we danced.

I called him in the afternoon to wish him a happy birthday.  He eventually got around to telling me that he was in the hospital until only two days ago for a urinary infection that lasted nine days.  I reminded him that we are friends for many years, and that he should have had his daughter call me.  Osvaldo is gradually regaining his strength and weight, and the milonga isn’t on his schedule for the time being.
