Love Is...

Your husband noticing the new Finnish Rye (Ruis) Bread stand at the Union Square Farmer's Market; being underwhelmed after tasting the bread, but buying several buns anyway, knowing I would love them.
I think the bread is delicious. I had wanted to buy some last week, but they were all sold out. I didn't feel well Saturday, so the husband did the market run. He said he heard that Nordic accent and figured they probably have something that would delight my sometimes homesick heart. He was right.

Thank you. I love you.

Manhattan Murder Mystery

Like any good New Yorker, I am fond of Woody Allen films. Last night we watched Manhattan Murder Mystery. Chuck full of great lines, my favorite probably being the following:

"LARRY: No, I...Yeah, look, no, I-I forbid you! I forbid you to go! It's a-a...I'm forbidding! Is that what you do when I forbid you? If-If that's what
you...I'm not going to be forbidding you a lot, if you do..."

The movie also made me nostalgic for "my New York", filmed in 1992 it reflects the New York I know best. The flea market on 26th & the parking lot on Astor featured, both no longer exist. Sad, but as they say you can't stop f***ing New York City.
