This 'n That About Me and Mine


I'm on a bit of a vacation in parts east. One of the upsides (one among many) of moving around is that I've made friends in far-reaching places. When we left NJ, Paco promised me (because I made a scene) an annual trip back; he's made good on that--in fact, some years I've made two and three exoduses back. Currently I also have a daughter, a son by marriage, and a couple of smashing grandsons to draw me here. Highlights so far:
--DC temple
--lunch in Kensington with Rosie (BYU/Jackson days friend)
--Amish market in Maryland countryside
--birthday banner sewing marathon
--5 Guys
--Philly walking mural tour
--premier Toy Story 3 IMAX 3-D
--TWO Broadway plays!
--Junior's cheesecakes on Time Square
--Toys R Us on Time Square
--Art All Night (art festival in Trenton)
--ALWAYS A GOOD TIME WITH MY WACKY PA/NJ FRIENDS
A non highlight was the gaping black hole formerly occupied by Mary Jane. I inched around it emotionally...I'm guessing it will forever be the NJ Grand Canyon for me now.
Thanks to all the stupendous hosts and hostesses--both two and four legged!!!!!

I may start to take offense at the "wacky" reference. Also sorry that the Pink Rose is no more. We'll have to work on a better-than-their-macaroon recipe for the future.
