CG, the only thing left in the kitchen is an island, and upper cabinets. Oh, and the nuker. No stove, no sink. All pots and pans are boxed up.

I bought a bunch of frozen Korean meals as well as the fish, so we'll have to get by with the microwave and slow cooker if we get tired of eating out.

This is going to take a month or more.




I still have a coupla pairs of boots, grey/blue python, and brown lizrd skin, from back in the 80s. I wonder if they still fit? They'll stretch.

We can both look like tourists. I'm sure you have extra cameras to hang around our necks.

And extra fanny packs.
I don't wear cameras around NYC... AKA "rob me signs." Well, unless I'm working, which means I'm not alone, so it doesn't matter.

I will say that my exotic leather boots have not done me wrong in NYC in the past, especially walking slow and confidently with my hands in my leather jacket pockets.

Actually, I have found that the way to move around NYC is to move around like you live there. Same goes for Dallas or LA. In any big city all over the world, the key to safety is to act like you live there.

bucky, that's a lot of empty kitchen real estate. Too bad this wasn't discovered during the summer. At least you could toss stuff on the grill. Again, I hope the restoration goes fast and successful.

Zero, K-Girl. I am on my second glass of wine for the night, thought.

I'd love to meet your parrots. The things I could learn... oh, yeah, the things I could learn.

Since prosciutto and gorgonzola go well with figs, I wonder how Newtons wrapped in prosciutto with a gorgonzola dipping sauce would work.

No way, no how!
Way off topic, again, but when I was married, my wife wasted thousands of dollars on shoes that looked great, and lasted six months. The only shoes I approved of for her were Brighton. They were expensive, but made like men's shoes -- made to last for years.

That's what makes a cowboy boot worth five-hundred bucks, or more. You buy them, and wear them for 20 years, just replacing the heels and soles as needed.

Hey BT, you would be surprised at how many people in NYC know and respect proper Texas attire. Psuedo-Texas is almost as recognizable in NYC as it is in Dallas or Houston.

BTW, here are the actual boots. The color and stitching sucked me in.

Nice boots! I always wanted a pair of chicken skins. Love the color, too.

I found one pair of my old cockroach killers, the pythons, in the basement.
(I hope Craigsy ain't lookin')

I wore those things everywhere 30 years ago.

Those pointy toe boots never felt good on my feet, so I never had any. Never had the box-nose boots, either. I like a nicely shaped round-to boot.
