June 12, 2008 Furball, dinner

We walked a few blocks from the apartment to the Heidelberg Restaurant. I got to have Berliner weissbier with raspberry syrup! I used to get this all the time with my friend, Chris at the Hofbrau Haus in Rochester. Kevin ordered Weisswurst for dinner, Jim - Jaegerschnitzel; I had Paprikaschnitzel. Even Jim liked his food.
We walked around the neighborhood a little bit and then back to his apartment.
His roommate, Crystal had come home and was watching a basketball game. She works for the director of "Lipstick Jungle," a NBC series.

06-12-08 Day One of our New York Trip

We returned from our vacation in New York state on Saturday, June 21, 2008.

On June 12, 2008 we flew from Houston's IAH airport to LaGuardia in Queens, NY. LaGuardia was great - not too crowded. We took a taxi to Kevin's apartment in Manhattan - on 90th Street between 2nd and 3rd avenues.
Kevin was waiting for us outside. His building has a red awning over the door. It's across the street from a nice little park and right next door to a church. The door leads to a stairway to an elevator. The elevator was always quick and took us to his apartment on the fifth floor. Furball, a 2 year old tortoise shell kitty, ran to the door. She just loves Kevin.
We took a tour of the apartment (2 minutes, tops), freshened up and went to dinner.

Going to the big city soon.

I'm getting ready for my big trip to New York City to visit my son, Kevin. We'll stay with him for 3 nights in his tiny apartment. Hopefully, he will have changed the litter in his cat's box before we arrive. There's so much to do in the city alone but we are also going to drive to Woodstock, Albany, Rochester and Niagara Falls.
