Today we are going to New York.
We are staying in a hotel in Times Square so we can see the bright lights. I have not been to New York for years and am looking forward to doing some things I have never done – like going to Liberty island.
I have also never been mugged in New York – although I have been in many places where I should have at least been mugged if not murdered.
But those were the days when I was younger and sillier and used to go to clubs like 54 – where I never did see Mick Jagger or Andy Warhol – or anyone I recognized.
Hansel and Gretel are looking forward to seeing the cast of Glee – which is a show which is apparently filmed in New York. We have told them the city is quite large and they may not see anyone they know. I have only ever seen fleeting glances of Glee – and then with the sound off. I don’t think it is my kind of show.
Tomorrow we are going to a puppet show in Central Park. I am looking forward to that. I am not sure if the horses are still there giving rides or if mayor Deblasio has stopped this.
Indianapolis has hired a public relations firm to start undoing the damage that our idjit Governor did with his discrimination act. It is times like this when I am glad I am not a real Hoosier.
