It’s so good to be home with the incomparable San Geraldo and my boys the cats (Dudo and Moose). But I miss My Mother The Dowager Duchess. Here are some random photos from my visit to Brooklyn.
(Click any image to enlarge on the delicious fun.)
|THE DUCHESS DIDN’T ONLY HAVE JUNK FOOD ON HAND FOR ME.
THIS IS CALLED A BIALY (CLICK HERE IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS).
|A WONDERFUL LUNCH WITH COUSIN EVIE AT THE PARKVIEW DINER.
THE KID BROTHER FLASHES ME A SMILE. (MORE ON COUSIN EVIE SOON.)
|THIS IS HOW THE DOWAGER DUCHESS FOLDS A BAG… FOR RECYCLING.
AND SAN GERALDO THINKS I’M OBSESSIVE!
|I SHOCKED THE DUCHESS BY SNAPPING THIS PHOTO AT HER BANK.
AN APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR AN HUCHA (COIN SLOT), DON’T YOU THINK?
|AS IF OREOS WITH DOUBLE STUFF WEREN’T ENOUGH.|
|PIZZA AT ROCCO’S, ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE DUCHESS’S.|
|THE KID BROTHER WOULDN’T DIG IN TO HIS PEPPERONI PIZZA.
UNTIL I PUT THE CAMERA AWAY… SO, I LIED.
|HOLIDAY TOILET SEAT COVERS AND TOILET RUGS (UN-PURCHASED).|
|WHAT THE DUCHESS GAVE ME TO TAKE HOME.
(AUSTRALIAN LICORICE, LICORICE ALL-SORTS, CANDY CORN,
DOUBLE-STUFF OREOS, TOOTSIE ROLLS, TOOTSIE POPS,
AND PEPPERIDGE FARM MILANOS).
AND THE DUCHESS RAISED US TO EAT HEALTHY!
The Dowager Duchess and I went to King’s Plaza in Brooklyn one day. It’s a shopping mall first opened in the ’60s that has recently undergone a major overhaul. It’s now an even better place to shop. I needed a new pair of Levi’s 501s, which cost more than 100 euros here. I got a pair there for the equivalent of 35 euros.
