Dedicated to Our man in New York - the Unbearable Banishment http://theunbearablebanishment.blogspot.com/

Slight hiccup - the operation has been brought forward a couple of days - nothing to do with us. So I have to change my bookings at the Lodge and the first night is looking iffy. I've decided to make an adventure of it and if they are full that night I shall go and stay in a rather nice looking hotel in Taunton itself. But fingers crossed I don't have to.

BTW when we sang this song in the forties Franklyn Roosevelt was the one whose 'looks give me a thrill ' in the song.

Good luck and good wishes, dear Pi. xxx

Eek... but then again, it gets it over with sooner. Much love and many crossed fingers xxx

The Unbearable Banishment said...

Thank you so much for the nod! Sinatra may like New York in June but October is pretty special, too! And I thought it was going to be just another dull Tuesday morning.

i'm with queenie, sugar! it will be done and on the road to recovery all that much sooner! we're thinking of you and sending love. xoxoxoxox

Pat said...

LOM: received with many thanks.

Dandelion: another goodie to stuff in my magic cushion. Thank you;)

Queenie; that's the right way to look at it:)

UB: the truth is New York buzzes year round. I love Ella's 'Autumn in New+ York but I used to sing this endlessly.

Savannah: you've convinced me.xoxoxox

Waiting can really drain a body so the sooner, the better. Then you can both concentrate on healing, resting x x

Kim Ayres said...

Here's hoping it means it's all the sooner when you can put your feet up :)

Pat said...

GG: yes I'm quite used to the idea now. Healing and resting sound good to me.

Kim: I do quite often Honestly:)
Although to mentally put my feet up would be nice.

Z said...

Love and very best wishes, dearest Pat.

You do know that it's cheating using a magic cushion, don't you?

Hope it all goes well.

Madame DeFarge said...

Do take care and fingers, eyes and legs crossed for you.

Eryl said...

Agreeing with the general chorus of 'better to get it over with,' though it must have felt a bit like a grenade drop when you were first told. I do hope the Lodge can accomodate you for the full stay, though an adventure may be good too. Good luck, and many hugs, X

Mike and Ann said...

You are both in our thoughts and prayers Pat.
Love, Ann and Mike.

Pat said...

Z: heartfelt thanks.

Kevin: a gal has to do what a gal has to do;)

Madame D: thank you. Eyes?

Eryl: there was I gearing myself up to eat dinner alone in a hotel and they don't do evening meals. Back to the junk food. Thank you for the hugs.

Mike and Ann: they are a real help too. Thank you.

The sooner the better? :¬)

I once dated a girl who worked in the Cross Keys in Taunton! :¬)

Pat said...

Mapstew: small world! the Cross keys is very close to the Lodge and my son and wife took me to lunch there. Only last night I phoned to
see if they do B&B. They don't- but they do serve meals all day.
There is quite a formidable lady there. Not a disappointed girl friend I hope:)

LOL, LOL...Indeed! I've always LOVED that song....And I remember the original lyrics very well....!
I love that it is used quite often in films even now....."The Fisher King"...a wonderful film, if you haven't ever seen it....And there is a British film called "How About You" with, among others, Vanessa R. and Joss Ackland, where the somg is prominently featured---A Sweet Film, by the way.

I pray the Lodge comes through, my dear.

Pat said...

Naomi: good songs never die. All is well and the Lodge has come through. Thanks dear Naomi for your caring thoughts.
