Nyc - No Postcards Wish You Were Here



After reading Lindylynns blog about eating in NYC, I wish we had retired there. Of course I hate the humidity, but the eating out sounds great. Coulter has talked about the same things in the dining section. NYC also has wonderful plays to go to. I love the size of the theaters - small. I am also like Mosaics' blog, after you tell about the illness what do you write about. So, I will do what she did and tell you a little about me.I have been married to a wonderful man (really he is) for 42 years. Yes, the same man. LOL He took such good care of me when I became ill and through my recovery. He learned how to do dishes, cook (somewhat), laundry, grocery shopping and never complained. Not even once. Before he retired he worked terribly long hours building and rebuilding bridges in the Chicago area. So, I was the one who maintained the homefront. The last two years he has become, maybe not proficient, but capable in the home.I had a Devon Rex cat before I became ill. Even though I knew I was allergic to cats, I still had one as I absolutely have to have a cuddly pet. Well, shortly before the diagnosis ALL of my allergies went through the roof and the cat one really did. I ended up on big oxygen tanks as my asthma went totally out of kilter. So, after the diagnosis, we had to find a good home for her and then we dedandered the TOTAL house. My husband had previously said "no more dogs". Four months after the diagnosis, I got a cute little black tiny toy poodle from Calif. who turned out to be more toy then tiny toy. She weighs 9 pounds (suppose to have been 6 to 6 1/2) and is a real sweetheart. She just loves my husband, much to his chagrin. He really likes her, but does not want to admit it. He has been gone for 5 weeks on his Boss Hoss Trike and is leaving Illinois this morning for home. Bitsy (the dog) and I both miss him. Someone said how could I let him go for so long? Really lots of people say that. He did not take his Trike trip last year because he was afraid to leave me for more then 1/2 day. And honestly, isn't that what love is - allowing the person some freedom. He loves his Trike and it is such a tension reliever for him. He took all the red roads this trip and visited friends and some family. He had a great time. His Trike has a 350 Corvette fuel injected engine and the back click (?) is shaped like an older corvette. It is black with the American Flag painted on the back. You can see Boss Hoss on the web, but they stopped making the Corvette click. There is room on the back for me, but I get too tired to ride on it. We did go up to Sedona 13 months ago when I first started to recover. He made us stop 3 times for me to rest on the way up. What a worry wart he was. But, the red rocks up there are just beautiful. I want to get more energy so we can do some more mini trips on the Trike.
