  • theSet NYC at Le Poisson Rouge

    A month ago, I posted about a wonderful weekend that included catching Altar Boyz at New World Stages. As a result (I assume) I received an email from Pim, a member of the team that founded theSet NYC. theSet NYC is a great idea. Collect a group of talented performers and promote a […]

  • CMA Writers Series at Joe’s Pub

    Last night was our ninth CMA Writers Series at Joe’s Pub. Yes, we already have our tickets for the next one, which will be #10. 🙂 They started at 6:35pm. This time, there were only four people on the stage, rather than the more typical five. There was a qualitative difference as well. […]

  • Happy Birthday Lois

    Lois and I rarely exchange gifts or cards on any occasion, including birthdays. The main exception is that Lois has gone out of her way to make some of my milestone birthdays very special affairs. That included my 30th, 35th and 50th. This was not a milestone birthday for Lois, but I decided […]

  • Make the Time

    Lois and I have been, and continue to be blessed, in many ways. At or near the top of that list is the amazing group of friends that we have. Individually and collectively, they bring us immeasurable joy, and expand our horizons with each interaction. I know that many people lead busy, complicated […]

  • Girlyman at Barns at Wolf Trap

    Another night, another fabulous Girlyman concert. Same old, same old, blah blah blah. Right? Wrong! 🙂 So, I just covered their April Fool’s NYC show at Joe’s Pub extensively in this post the other day. I’ll try not to be too repetitious, but I will highlight some of the similarities. I mentioned in […]

  • Weekend Birthday Bash

    Our friends from Richmond came up to spend a very special birthday weekend with us in NYC. They were supposed arrive at our apartment by 10am on Friday. That didn’t happen. There were significant snow flurries in NYC (nothing stuck), and the navigation system on the airplane was unable to make an instrument […]

  • Road Trip Completed

    My last post covered the first half of our long road trip south. We left off on Friday February 6th, while David was still on call. After our shopping trip, Lois and I spent the rest of the day at David’s (where that post was written). We left at 8:30pm and headed to […]

  • Two Flew South

    Lois asked me to name this post Two Flew South. She had a good reason, it was clever, so I didn’t hesitate in accepting her suggestion. Let’s not make it a habit though. This is my blog, not hers, and I intend to keep it that way. Of course, all of the photos […]

  • Home For The Holidays

    Until this year, our closest friends could always count on their family being together for the holidays. Their kids (our godchildren) went to school in the vicinity, or at least were guaranteed to choose home (Richmond, VA) for the school break at the holidays. Now, things aren’t as guaranteed. Laura is married and […]

  • Giving Thanks

    Lois and I are truly thankful every day of our lives. We’ve been blessed in so many ways, we couldn’t accurately count. Near the top of any list of blessings for us, you would find our wonderful godchildren. In 2008, we were extra-blessed, when Laura got married, and moved to NYC with her […]
