Bill and I just had chinese take-out for dinner. This was my fortune cookie.Remember yesterday, when I said that nothing was going on here? Hah! Just wait a few minutes. After I wrote that post, things started to happen. Drama. First of all everyone is just fine. Thankfully, not that much drama. It's a long convoluted story, but suffice to say...... Yesterday Polly and I found out that we needed to pick up something in New York City. Like, right now. Shipping wasn't an option and someone needed to physically go to NYC and pick up some stuff. Lots of stuff and right now.
Polly is leaving tomorrow from South Florida to go to North Carolina for a family vacation. I am in Michigan. We started to research flights when I thought of someone. Someone we met on this here interweb thingy. He seemed like a nice person..... I wonder if he could.......?
Long story, short. The stuff is picked up. This nice person (who doesn't even live in NYC - but is quite close) took a cab, hiked several miles and boarded a ferry to get our stuff! In August! In Manhattan! Just when you think the world is a mess and no one treats each other with kindness.... that happens.
Yes, taxi, walking, boats......It made me think of this. Glenn and Art, this song is for you.
With Gratitude, Polly and Laurie
