The Bright Side
Even though our last few days have been sad, there was also some good stuff mixed in.
Here's a few.
There is finally a decent hotel in Yonkers. The Marriott Residence Inn was lovely, clean, and convenient. The staff was very nice including Maria (with sister Di), who had earned 4 stars before we even arrived.
The rooms even had a nice sitting area (and a kitchen with full size fridge) where we enjoyed Cocktail Hour and a toast to Bo upon our arrival.
The rooms also had a seriously comfortable bed.
We got facetime with Uncle Bobby (my Mother's baby brother) and Aunt Joan.
We had even more facetime with people we love including Tina and Gina......
..........Di and Choppy.
Jesse made us all laugh (like grandfather, like grandson).
We got to do google eyes with our old pal Gav. Don't ask.
We had a glimpse of the city from the GW.
There was blue sky above us on the upper deck.
Took a ride through the old neighborhood in the Bronx, past my off-campus apartment. 35-92 was still standing. The same couldn't be said for the Stella d'Oro's house which was now an apartment building.
Drove by Van Cortland Park where my Grampy Dignam used to play cricket on Sundays. Cricket or soccer? Hmmmm, now I'm not sure, but I'll go with cricket. It was probably both.
We miss New York and wish we were closer or at least got to visit more. We'll have to work on changing that.
Do you miss someplace special?
