Thankfully KP won the game so the Coach was quite the jovial fellow at the racuous post-game celebration with some of the ol' gang.
Charlie was smilin' all night, of course except when the camera appears. He even was smiling when he was trying to pretend that the pre-birthday cake they brought out that said "Happy Birthday Charlie" was not for him. (and I'm not gonna try Denise's trick to get him to smile http://thesandelstars.blogspot.com/ )
So, what's a trip to NY without stepping out in the City that Never Sleeps? I got these photos from sensospeciale off Flickr bec. DUH! i didn't have my camera when we walked through Times Square but we did walk right by this Vote sign (see it way up there?) and the I heart Ugly Betty neon which is above the Toys R Us store. Not too many years ago, I remember Times Square as a crime-filled den of porn stores, ugly theaters, and general debauchery. Now, it's all glitz, glamour, ticker tape and tinsel and just an eensy bit of ye old tyme debauchery.
We took the subway and the Long Island Rail Road everywhere..such good public transportaters (look it up: it's a Scrabble word for sure) we are.
But then, sad news came. We lost a Hollywood icon and humanitarian. Paul Newman was my first and only movie star love. Ever since I watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, I was completely hooked by those steel-blue eyes and the chiseled Adonis looks and then seeing him in The Sting clinched my undying adoration. But, to keep the romance going, he turned into one of the country's most generous philanthropists donating millions to charity through his Newman's Own line and founding the Hole in the Wall Gang for seriously ill kids. Awwww... guys like that should live forever.
So we're back to town after the quick weekend and we are STILL having a little leftover summer!! We wore shorts and rode our bike the other day and it's supposed to last a few more days. Now C is off to Saskatoon, Sasketchewan listed as one of the most attractive cities in Canada....is that for real? While you're googling the Lambert Bowl, look up Saskatoon on Google Earth and see if you can see the grain silos.
Only days till the big 6-0 birthday. not going to mention whose...
