Oh! Ma-Ma!

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).
FRESH KIWI.
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.

While we shopped, the Duchess wanted to sit down for a rest. I spotted a massage chair and slipped a dollar bill into the arm. The Duchess loved it. I shot a video. If I share the entire video, the Duchess might never buy me candy again. So, here’s just one frame. (But, I think I’m still in big trouble.)

OH! MA-MA!
