Had a good sleep last night in spite of the traffic noise. My room was on the 5th floor and even with the window closed, I could hear every car and horn.
I suppose that after a while, you’d get used to it.
Went to the corner bakery again for a ham and cheese croissant and a large coffee to wake me up.
Once the meeting was over I said my goodbyes to my new Jazz friends (Bruce, Anne & Jean) and headed for Penn Station.
As I switched from Broadway to 7th, I could see lots of flashing red lights. As I got closer, it was obvious that all the commotion was in front of Penn Station. The whole block in front on Madison Square Gardens was full of Fire Engines, NYPD and Ambulances. Fortunately all the Rubber-Neckers were looking at the Hotel Pennsylvania.
I found the NJ ticket counter then went to find something to eat. Bingo. Nathans Hot Dogs in Penn Station. Check that one off the list.
1435 – on the Boonton Line headed for Walnut Street.
Teddy was asleep, so Athena didn’t come to the station meet, but that was OK…I found my way for the two blocks to their place.
Izzy had a soccer practise, so we all headed over to the park. Mac and I played catch while Athena, Collin and his therapist worked on outdoor activities.
We stopped at a local pizza place on the way home…good thin crust pizza and BBQ.
Back to the house and I gave them their books. Teddy loved his…and my beard. I think I have a new friend. Mac, Izzy, Athena and I watched a movie (actually the kids took took turns playing with my IToy and Collin played on the computer. He is fastinated by opening credits of movies. YouTube is his friend.
Time for bed…first time for several days that it’s been before midnight…
