Note the traditional tile work on the facade.

Memorial Day is always a sad holiday for me. Although we all have barbecues to "kick-off" the summer fun, the true reason for the holiday is to remember. Remember those who have fought in our wars, especially those who have died. Thank you to all those who served!
I'm including a photo of my father-in-law, during World War II, such a young man. This is a scanned image of when he was in Europe, 1945. He survived the war to return home and raise a family. Not all servicemen and woman are so lucky. Enjoy the weekend and remember!

It seems I use my iPhone for photos more often these days. The iPhone camera is amazingly sharp and produces very large photos. The hardest part is holding the thin "camera" steady.
We went into the city yesterday to see The Big Knife one of our Roundabout Theatre plays. It was very dramatic, with no comic relief, which put me on edge and produced feelings of anxiety and sadness. The acting by Bobby Cannavale and Richard Kind was amazing. I was impressed with their endurance for such long stretches of arguing and dramatic expressions.
It's always a treat to go into the city and see a live performance. Being Roundabout subscribers is a way to insure our seven or eight visits into the city each year.
The photo above, taken with the iPhone, is of Times Square.

The weather is warming up and that can only mean one thing. It's time to get over to Fire Island! The ferries are running and the beaches are not crowded. Cleanup from Sandy has been taking place all winter. Check it out soon. Start planning...Memorial Day is just two weeks away!

As the clouds come, so starts the raining season here in Florida. It's time to come home to Long Island. I miss my home, my friends and family. It's the place I feel most comfortable and truly feel "at home."

Publix supermarket, here in Florida, had the workers in "cinco de mayo" costumes handing out (pushing) Mexican food items. Couldn't help but feel just a little sorry for them.
This guy was so nice and let me take his picture for the holiday.
