Yup, this is it. "Vacation" officially starts on Saturday.
Mike and I enjoyed one of our last days together and got very little accomplished. Which is just fine.
After dropping the kids off we came home via Zabar's, at which point I realized that I have never shared this NYC gem with you all. When I first moved into Manhattan, perhaps even before, Mike introduced me to what was then the gourmet food store. Many concerts-in-the-park were provisioned with cheese and bread from Zabar's. Many a lox-and-bagel breakfast have been procured here. Today we grabbed some yummy gift stuff as well as some basic provisions for the apartment. I say "we" but I actually stood outside with the bikes, knitting, while Mike did the shopping. We know who wears the pants in this family. (Actually I was wearing bike shorts.)After a shower and a rest we took a walk up to Times Square and dropped off Squidette's clarinet to be overhauled. Along the way we saw the Naked Cowboy. This was the first time I have ever seen him. Must use a good sunblock because he just is not that tan. Dave, the buns are for you.
Caught sight of this view on the way home. I don't know what any of the buildings are, but it was an interesting juxtaposition of old and new.
