Thanks for your visit, Pat!

If you have not read Jostein Gaarder's The Solitaire Mystery, you can go for that. It is for young adults but it a bbok for everyone. I had review it last year. click on the titlle to check that out.

Gautami: many thanks for your help. That should give me sweet dreams.

Nice photos!

Michele sent me!

PI said...

Hello Joe!

Monique said...

That second photograph is absolutely stunning ... :-)

Becky68 said...

Michele sent me to check out your fun pictures of NYC, I've never been anywhere but Penn Station in NYC, but it certainly looks exciting.

Kanani said...

I love your recollections. They're vibrant and full of emotion. NYC is a place that I still find stunning.

Did Charles ever act again?

I sure wish we had the same anti-war fervor now that we had during Vietnam.

Carmi said...

I truly do love New York, and I am truly grateful that you've shared these today. I needed to be transported away for a bit!

Belatedly dropping by from Michele's. I like how your storytelling covers such a broad range, and includes whatever medium supports your message. It's a very rich use of the blogging medium, and I love reading along.

Michele sent me to catch up with Past Imperfect :-)

I like the second photograph, it feels so vibrant to me.

Glad Michele sent me here today too. Yessterday, I had not looked at it closely.

Nea said...

Thanks Pat, I love theRembrandt

PI said...

Monique: as I said it isn't mine.

Becky68: you'll have to go back and see the town.

Kanani: sadly I lost touch with Charles but I'm sure he would continue acting in some way- he was so handsome and attractive and charming.

Carmi: it's always worth waiting for your comments - always helpful and encouraging.

Gautami: glad to have you visit anytime:)

cq: I'll look forward to seeing them.

Nea:bless you for linking it. He hangs above my stairs - not the original. One of my sons brought it back from NY after hearing me rave about it.

Michael Manning said...

pi: Take it all in! And I hope you post more photos. I was last in NYC in 1997 for a memorial service. I look forward to visiting with a happier occasion. The Arts will astound you!!!

PI said...

Michael: I don't think I had a camera with me in 1970 - let alone a digital so have to rely on other's photos; but it is imprinted on my heart:)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Good looking pictures. Very detailed.

Michele sent me.

PI said...

Jean-luc: not mine I'm afraid.

I (cliche) love New York too. I was in the area around the Plaza a short time ago, wandering from Central Park to 5th and in my case stopping at the new Apple Store along the way.

I've stayed at the Pierre, which is more or less opposite the Plaza (about 200 metres along the West side of Central Park) and I think it has a similarly opulent interior, with gravity defying prices for the cocktails.

Last time I stayed at the W on Broadway.

You are making me want to go back!

Michele returned here from visiting a few hours earlier!

utenzi said...

Michele sent me over to see you, Pat, and say Hello from America to you.

You actually visited the US almost before I did and I was born here. I've been to the statue of liberty but by the time I visited when I was in high school they didn't let us go up into the arm anymore. Structural problems. But the view from the head is pretty good too.

R. Sherman said...

I'm waiting to see if you made it farther west during your visit.

Cheers.

PI said...

Randall: if I say no, alas, will you not read the next bit?

PI said...

Utenzi: I guess I am older than you then:)

THE BLUEST BUTTERFLY said...

I like the second photo. It would make an interesting jigsaw puzzle.

PI said...

BB: it's extraordinary how everybody raves about this photo. I just wish I had taken it:)

PI said...

Rashbre: how marvelous.
would you have room in your hand luggage for a little one?
