    Hey Gwamma!

    Sorry for the no-show here, but I just woke up - I am shaking off the effects of a 10mg Valium I took this morning in order to do some serious crown work at the dentist.

    Re NYC: check out the website "Humans of New York" at Humans of New York. This guy is a photographer whose favorite subjects are just ordinary people on the streets of the Big Apple. No, I personally do not want to live there as I would seriously fear for my Third's safety (as she runs off, not that I expect her to be randomly attacked), but I used to work for a big brokerage firm at the old World Trade Center and I had nothing but good experiences in the city with its citizens (I commuted in from New Jersey). I suspect you personally will have one of those good times that will make you want to return.

    Re Getting out of the car if stopped by the police - just sit quietly with your hands visible and wait for instructions. At night, turn on the interior lights and do the same. I have been stopped by cops about five times in my life, and I have never had a problem because I don't cop an attitude about it and I don't do anything stupid to make them think I am either crazed or criminal, and I think they appreciate that. Just FYI, it was for real cause in all five cases (my driving was, shall we say, lacking...). You know, it seems we all want the police to stop everybody else, but when it comes to us personally being stopped, then the defensiveness starts. As I am white-haired, white-skinned, and blue-eyed, I cannot answer to other Americans' (of different skin colors) experiences. THAT is a hot-button, much-discussed topic here.

    Gwamma, tell me again - when does the big jetliner leave NYC to take you back home?

    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    LOL, no code and I did mean Y A R N. Not that yams wouldn't be tasty but yarns are prettier. It was an invitation from one knitter to another to point out some of the best places to get wools and other fibers in this area. However, I'm not selling any myself! And I did have a wild thought that if Gwamma is in the area on the day that my knitting group gets together that she might enjoy meeting them - we even meet on a small farm which would be right up her alley. Although that could be construed as trying to hook her up with one of my favorite spinning fiber suppliers....

    haha see? marketing gimmick
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Wish I could Gwamma 😊
    Getting ready for a trip of my own in a few weeks, off to SE Asia for a couple of weeks. I was hoping it would be a break from the cold weather, but we're having a mild autumn up here a far. Still actually warm.
