11/6 Homeward bound...

In about an hour I'll take off for the airport and points west. I'm really ready to get this move finished.

Yesterday had elements of the sublime and hte ridiculous. Words weekend ended as it began--delightfully. I didn't get t o say goodbye to Glo, and that was the only bad thing. But I know I'll see her again soon.

The two hour drive from Mohonk to NYC took four hours. It was extremely frustrating, and we can blame it on a mistake on the Google map. First time I've experienced that. The traffic was horrendous because of the NY Marathon.

After we got back to the city everything got good again. My nephew Adam (Joe and Cindy's oldest) met us for dinner. We went to a nearby Chinese restaaurant, which provided excellent food. Then Adam came back to Dave's apartment and visited for a while. His job sounds great, and a wonderful oppportunity for him. It was really good to see him. While we walked back from the restaurant I called Cindy and said, "Guess who's walking with a handsome young man on the streets of New York?" I only wish I'd remembered my camera.

I was exhausted and went to bed around midnight Got up at 7--guess I'm just ready to get going.

My friend Nancy will join me at my condo this afternoon to help with packing. Right now all that's left is the bathroom and JUNK that's strewn throughout the place. All the easy stuff is done, now I must make difficult decisions about the junk...throw away, keep, store, take with.

I blame you for getting me addicted to your blog. Here I am, on my day off, reading your sundry adventures. Say hi to Nancy.

To that "nietzsche" guy and cowardly anonymous writer, dead people can't write blogs!!

jer..thank you for taking some time out of your trip to check in with Adam, and for feeding him! He may not get lots of family visits, and every one counts. Thanks also for the call, as I always enjoy hearing his voice, even on those times he would rather be doing anything but talking to his mom. Be prepared this weekend b/c I am going to want every detail, every word.

I was exhausted all day but am not sleepy enough to get to bed yet. I'm sure glad that I didn't have to pack today.

Cindy, Adam is a charming guy. I was glad to meet him.

Steve, I don't mind when people disagree with me. Am not forcing anyone to read this blog. Plus I have the all-powerful delete button. :)

Thanks for commenting though.

Cindy, it'll be great to see you and I'll be happy to fill you in on the details.

Dave, I hate having to run to panera or elsewhere to get on the computer. Taking valuable time.

You are such a great guy, and a good friend, and I really appreciate your hospitality. Hope to see you soon.

Thank you Dave...I am glad he had the chance to meet you too. He really is a special and unique person. I miss him a lot, but hope that he is making the most of his big new adventure that is HIS life (and not the one I would have ever expected for him) Thanks for including him in your 'time with a friends'. After looking at your web page, I think you might be just the kind of person Adam would love spending time with.
