Happy New Years from Brooklyn!

I have been utterly remiss in my holiday well wishing. Please forgive me?

Here's a hearty happy new years from both me and Joe Jr's (New York's most charmingly decorated greasy spoon). It's the great equalizer; always full of West Village parents, off duty cops, nannies and students and it wishes all of us "Happy New Year" the same.

2009 is going to be a real treat, I can tell already.


  1. And a happy new year to you too!

  2. Glad you are back.

    Missed your blog.
    Your way of writing about real and simple life. Refreshing outlook.

    Best to you and yours this 2009

  3. Oh I'm in love...I just spent far too long reading through your archives back to July - and I'll be back for more. You have a lovely sensibility. Happy new year!

  4. Thank you, thank you, Lola! That's such a nice to hear!

  5. I just happened to stumble upon your blog, what a lovely blog it is. I have been reading and looking at lovely pictures, my what a treat to these old eyes. Your a lovely writer keep up the good work and love some of your ideas, and a Happy New Years to you too. I've just started to read some and I'll keep coming back for more reads.

  6. I've been sharing your blog (starting with your amazing Yahoo article) with my 90 year old Dad who moved here to So. Cal from Upstate in 1946 (but has always been a New Yorker at heart). The joy in his eyes is indescribable...Thank you!!
