Visiting Mom




Spent the weekend with Mom back in NJ. On Saturday, we went into NYC to see an off-broadway show titled, "A Jew Grows in Brooklyn". Leave it to my Mom to find a show like that. It was a blast, though. Walked all over the city, well, the west side actually. Gosh, there's a Starbucks on 9th Avenue--the ultimate American statement that an area has changed. That's Mom wearing green in Times Square. And, of course, the best pizza in the world is made in NYC (don't even bother to try to argue this point) so I had to give it its due!! Next time I'll get pics of the hot dog/pretzel street vendors--another one of my NYC favorites!! Only place I have found where you can get mustard and cold sauerkraut on your hot dog--mmmm---I crave it!! So good to see Mom doing so well--and, praise the lord, cancer free!! We celebrated all weekend by eating chocolate!!

Yay to your Mom's health!! :D

We're having pizza tonight... never been to NY, never had NY 'za. Must go to NY. My daughter goes every summer with her Dad. Last year was homage to John Lennon. Year before, re-creation of the Sopranos opening credits (filmed and with music)... yes NJ, but they spent loads of time in NY too. Year before that was Today show then side trip to Jamestown for the I Love Lucy museum. That's my kid. 'Nuff blathering from me.

Sounds like you had a great day :)
