Wagging a grateful tail

Social Diary
Monday, December 3, 2018. A rainy day in Manhattan yesterday, with lots of fog and temperatures in the low-to-mid 50s! Overall it was a grey and rainy weekend in New York, but pleasant for everyone who took to the sidewalks, the museums and the shops and restaurants. I was surprised by the thickness of the […]...

Social Diary
Friday, November 29, 2018. Mosty sunny, yesterday in New York, with temperatures in the mid-to-low 40s. The leaves are mainly gone from the trees. It’s dark outside by 6 pm, and within another week, the holiday festivities will be in the clubrooms, restaurants and living rooms all over town. One night earlier in the week […]... READ MORE

Fathers and son

Social Diary
Grey and cold, yesterday in New York with temps running up to mid-40s midday and back to the 30s at night. It’s not an interesting forecast to this kid brought up with New England winters which defined this time of years, especially this holiday week and weekend. Easier for walking the dogs, however. And the […]... READ MORE

New York life

Social Diary
Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Lots of rain in New York beginning yesterday afternoon with temperatures dropping into the high 30s. One of the great things about New York life is the museums.

A Day of Thanks

Social Diary
Friday, November 23, 2018. The Day after Thanksgiving. It was cold in New York with temps dropping from the 20s in daytime and into the teens at night.

Mother Nature’s events

Social Diary
Tuesday, November 20, 2018. It was a sunny day, yesterday in New York with the thermometer reaching up to the low 50s and nary a sign of that horrendous snowstorm last Thursday.

Mother nature in charge

Social Diary
Monday, November 18, 2018. Cold and overcast most of the weekend in New York with temperatures in the 40s and falling into the high 30s at night. But it wasn’t that wintry cold that bites your nose and hands and can get you shivering if your standing still outdoors. Thursday’s storm was a big surprise. […]... READ MORE

Social Diary
Thursday, November 15, 2018. Colder in New York yesterday with temps reaching to the high 40s and falling to the very low 30s at night. Clear with the weather forecasting maybe some snow.

Hands on care

Social Diary
Wednesday, November 14, 2018. Grey and rainy with temps in the high 40s and some actual snow predicted all around us for Thursday. Gee, snow in November, just like the old days. Elections. Reading about the increase in women running for office and winning, it occurred to me that when I was a kid growing […]... READ MORE

Monday, November 12, 2018. Cold in New York with temperatures in the high 40s, dropping in the mid-30s in some spots with all kinds of cold, rainy, snowy, icy weather predicted for the Northeast in the next day or two.
