Have to admit I am concerned about this one.
I am concerned particularly for the folks who refused to evacuate.
Think it's going to be bad. Wish I didn't, but I do.
Ira has to go to work. A coworker is picking him up tomorrow morning, at
least that is the plan. The Jimmy Kimmel show is broadcasting from Ira's
workplace this week. Ira has been busy as a one=armed paper hanger.
He'll probably stay at work tomorrow night and maybe Tuesday, too.
The buns and I will be holding down the fort in Bay Ridge.
Expect we may lose power so may not be able to post. My backup computer
battery chose an awkward time to get very, very sick. If I can post, I will.
PS good luck and be careful, Donna--and all the rest of you
Ira did get in to work, and he says all is well.
The buns and I soldiered through, at least so far.
Con Edison robo-called us that we might lose power, but it hasn't
The City has some serious, uh, dampness issues, and other issues as
well. Looks like we'll be able to shake the water from our fur,***
ourselves dry, and get back to normal, eventually. Emphasis on the
Ira stayed at BAM Monday night, trying to help the Jimmy Kimmel crew.
Kimmel crew canceled the Monday show anyway. Guess the guests couldn't
make it. But they are on tonight. Watch or tape if you'd like to see
where Ira works--one of the theaters anyway. They'll be broadcasting
from there thru the end of this week.
We are soon to move to our "new" house, which also was spared.
We are very, very blessed.
BTW, the buns are *not* enthusiastic about the impending move. Of
course, they don't know what is happening (though I've told them we
bought them a house). They just know that the sectional, formerly the
main piece of furniture in our living room, was carried out. Now it has
been replaced by a number of empty cardboard boxes.
They do not like the change, not one little bit.
Thank you for the pictures of the cake and your daughter. That cake was
marvelous. Hmmm... bet it tasted good, too.
We don't know when exactly we are moving. The house renovation isn't
finished yet, but it is close. I'm pretty sure we will be completely
moved before the end of November.
