happy birthday my amazing friend
i love you & wish you the world!!
|If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember.
you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most
important thing is, even if we’re apart.. i’ll always be with you.”

you’ve no doubt heard the expression ‘only in ny’ . in 18 years living in nyc, i’ve heard it countless times – mostly from people visiting from the suburbs. i now find myself wondering if they ever bothered to take a look around their own environment. with the lack of anything else going on, one would think someone would have developed a special slogan for the activities which occur outside of the city. following is a list of just some of the things i’ve noticed in the last several days that you would never find in ny:
a nun in full habit pulling into the parking lot of the local ‘quick chek’ in a behemouth, black, GMC Suburban.
‘quick chek’ stores (which carry only soda and chemical laden food-like products packaged in boxes or cans)
a baby bambi-like deer with little white spots on her back lying dead on the side of the road.
a speeding pick-up truck with a horse trailer attached and police lights flaring from the dash, crossing a double yellow line, passing a car on a 2 lane winding road.
5 women in the waiting room of the vet’s office – all middle-aged, overweight, with gray hair wearing farm clothes.
11 deer (in 7 different spots) on the way home from my brother’s house (and people are afraid to drive in the city??)
the same parking spot almost every time i come home.
a ladybug on the wall in the living room.
no vegetarian restaurants, group meditation, adult education classes, frozen yogurt or health food stores in an entire zip code.
