Well, I missed this happy hour. I called Pocahontas to let her know that my son had a car accident so I was in the ER with him. Sorry about that. Hope you guys had fun.
He is fine. Just a little shook up and really pissed off that he totally smashed up his car. Let's see, he's had his driver's license for about 3 weeks. That's about right for a 17 yo boy! Bwaa haa haaa.
I'm just grateful that no one was hurt or killed. And that he is OK.

What a difference a day makes, the rain had stopped and wind had died, it was a perfect night for a walk through the city which was a good thing because the bus was gridlocked.
Good food, drink, company and conversation on both sides of the river.

Thanks Robin.

This might be a fun way to spend an afternoon.

I had a good time meeting everyone last night too, and look forward to some of the local dive trips we started planning for next season. Hope you can join us on a few of those. An don't forget to take some pics to post on your trip to the Phillipines.

My son did the same thing at about the same age, and later added a second wreck. But then everything changed and he became an excellent driver. Something good will come from your son's experience yesterday! I am so glad all is well.

Sorry to hear about it, Ellen, but I'm glad to hear that he's okay. That's what's important--a car is only steel and can be replaced.

I had a really nice time despite my jog in heels from MSG to Rockefeller center. At first I was bummed out there were no taxis and then I realized I was actually making better time on foot than I would have in a cab.
I've never seen midtown so crowded.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

The first photo is a little place we stopped on the way to Arthurs. Can you guess why it's famous?
