A Bum-Fuck day in New York
« on: June 02, 2006, 08:15:10 PM »
 :'(

Well it rained hard for the second straight early evening in New York and our subways stations and tunnels, at least the ones from Manhattan to Queens flooded, for a change.  It was fine going from my job in Brooklyn through Manhattan but there was no service to Queens except on the primarily elevated # 7 train, made famous and really useful for me only to get to Shea Stadium...But there was no service downstairs to my neighborhood and so I had to catch a bus to Queens Blvd and from there ideally a bus home...Naturally there were no buses and the one or two that went by were jammed, people bundled like sardines so I made the approximately one and one half mile walk home in a cool, steady rain...My shoes and socks were drenched by the time I got home, thank goodness at least I had an umbrella, it will be a miracle if I don't get pneumonia...OY...I need some Jewish penicillin (chicken soup) but who has the energy, I couldn't eat a thing, I just thank a higher power I'm home safe and sound and in one piece already.

Aw Jody,
I'm sorry you had to go schlepping today. What a crazy coincidence, I made chicken, and noodles tonite.

Get real close to your compooter screen and get a whiff of this.(insert little grinning devil here)
Hope your shoes aren't ruined.
Glad you are safely tucked into home now. The good news is, that tomorrow is Saturday.

Kisses and warm hugs for you, :-* :-* :-*

Jody, you did wait until you got home to get out of your wet clothes, right? Checking, just checking.

I kept running into people yesterday who were in various stages of drenched, drying out and totally sweated up from having been stuck in trains. Ouch, yikes and ugh.

Hope you have a better time over the weekend, Jody.

Thanks Andy, I'm drying out today, glad to be home safe and sound in my sanctuary protected from the elements.  Yesterday afternoon was terrible indeed but like any resilient New Yorker I survived !!!

Cheers, Jody
