When Jonathan said he was not going to make it...I kinda decided to skip the meet also. But since Thomas is going to be there...I'd like to stop by and say hello to everyone...and have one of those famous Stage Deli sandwiches.

Nancy is having minor surgery on her jaw this afternoon, but says she will not need me to hold her hand tomorrow morning.

Hope to see yez all.

@Frank Apisa,
If she changes her mind or things worsen (I hope not), then certainly feel free to bug out. She's more important, of course.

@jespah,
Thanks, Jespah.

Nancy has to deal with me on a daily basis. She as strong as titanium.

I'd really like to see everyone...even Thomas, who I have not seen in months.

I enjoyed meeting new people...and re-meeting others that I had met before. My muddled mind was not always able to differentiate between those two groups...but on the positive side of that problem, my muddled mind has made it possible for me to see a new movie every night, because every movie is a new one to me.

Nancy was recovering from what ended up being a root canal done carefully (and dragged out) because of involvement of the root and a sinus cavity...so I only stuck around for an hour before heading back to be a fortress of strength for her.

I hope someone picked up the half sandwich I left behind...because the sandwich was a major league winner.

@Frank Apisa,
Glad to hear that you were able to make it out, however briefly.

Hope Nancy's doing better this week. She's a lovely lady.

Meeting Boida again Thursday night. Hoping to entice Thomas, Stephen and Joe out for a meal again soon.

Have been Metting and Central Parking, some shopping has been done, walks have been had around Greenwich Village......mainly East, just hanging out has happened.

I am restricted because my back can handle sitting only for shortish periods....though Scotch is of great assistance in this process, and needs quite long periods of lying down. If I sit too much I can't walk for long, if I walk too long I can't sit!!! If I remain horizontal with legs in a certain position for varying amounts of time I have a reasonable amount of activity power....but I have to monitor it.

So.....Dodi takes periods of wandering off about her own pursuits then we team up. We have managed a lot of walking about but less than either of us wishes.

Both enjoying dogs and sqiggles and desperately attempting to befriend any cats we meet as we are cat deprived!

Finding New Yorkers extremely charming and friendly, as always we get approached and asked about our accents.

Dodi bought a Mary Frances parrot bag. Tres bling. I bought the bestest lace up boots.

That one surprised me when I first moved here, but I have to second what you said. The cliché of the abrasive, unfriendly New Yorker has practically nothing to do with reality. If some New Yorker told its originators that they were idiots, it must have been because they actually were idiots. German tourists on the other hand --- oy veh, as we New Yorkers like to say.

It won't take much enticing as far as I am concerned. When is "soon"?

We are up for any night except Thursday or Saturday. When you up? And Tsar and Joe?

Damned if I know which thread to do this stuff on!

Thank you Beth and Ossobuco.

Nancy is doing fine.

My hearing is so bad I was barely able to hear anyone in the deli...except Region...who was sitting directly across from me...and Thomas who was directly to my right. I want to thank Region for spending so much time talking to me...but there was no way I could hear anyone else except Thomas...and Thomas only wanted to talk to the women!

Jeez...I never realized that Steve was such a chatterbox. He never stopped from the moment he got into the place. I cannot put into words how much I envy people who can do that kind of chatter easily and steadily.

@Frank Apisa,
Not being able to hear is awful. I now have hearing aids. Are you able to get some Frank?

Glad to hear Nancy is feeling better

@dlowan,
Lotsa bucks involved in hearing aids, D...and there are times when not being able to hear is a blessing. (Do not repeat that to Nancy if you see her!)

Maybe some day.

All of which reminds me of a golf story. Two old golfing geezers talking before teeing off.

Golfer 1: Just got new hearing aid. Only cost me $150.

Golfer 2: It only cost you $150?! Mine cost over $4000. What kind is it?

Golfer 1 (Looking at his watch): It's 9:45.

@Frank Apisa,
I have had to point out to a few people that if they will listen to how fast I talk, they would have a pretty good idea of how fast I listen. I've also noticed that if some people would take a course of speech therapy, fewer of us would need hearing aids.

@roger,
Not sure how much help speech therapy would be to some people, Roger...

...but one would think that movie and television actors should be able to speak distinctly, without mumbling or otherwise bruising the oral language.

One would be very wrong in that.

The quality of enunciation from actors these days is abysmal. Conversation in many programs is almost unintelligible...and I, for one, use closed captioning in damn near all TV entertainment programming.

But considering the quality of some pictures and TV programs...maybe this is one of those times where near deafness is a blessing.
