We had a small gathering here today, just us and two friends. Marc will do a better job reviewing our Thanksgiving, so I'll leave that to him.

Instead, here are a few random photos.

Here, we see Marc holding one lamp and reaching for its twin, as we were taking them to a lighting place to have them rewired and cleaned up. They were my grandmother's. They're solid brass (and weigh a ton!) and the piece near the top is crystal. They're really lovely.

Here's a tip, in case you visit this area. I've never eaten here, but I'd bet the food is good. If you're looking for good Italian food, look for little old places like this. Local places, probably run by the same family for ages. That's where you usually find the best stuff.

I recently mentioned eating at the Village Den. This is a photo of it.

Random NYC shot, taken while leaving a meeting at our uptown offices.

Another random NYC shot, taken at the same time as the last one.

My train pulling out after dropping me at my station, leaving me to drive home.

I hoped you like this random little bit of sharing.

More rugby photos are on their way, if that does anything for you.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

It's got to be the old age coming on me [hell that was a sleezey sentence] but I love the blurry action pics. I took several like the train pic you took whilst in Turkey. I just love them.
Hugs to you two,
p.s. the pic you sent is heaven as my desktop. I think of you guys every morning before I surf my porn with a hot cup of coffee.

knotty: you're a character. :)

cincy: Thanks. You, too!

pinknest: I honestly don't know if it was something else before that. I've been under the impression that it has been there a long time, but I could be wrong.

i love family heirloom pieces... they make your house more of a home and always bring back precious memories. I have a few. Nothing spectacular but bring me much happiness.
