Fuhgeddaboudit?

We arrived home from New York (mostly Brooklyn) Thursday afternoon. New York is not my home and hasn't been for a very long time. But it would be impossible to "fuhgeddaboudit" (forget about it) given our love for The Dowager Duchess, The Kid Brother, and a number of other very special people.

ROUGH IS RIGHT!

As for the pace, the competition for space (parking and personal), the noise, the traffic?

Oy! Fuhgeddaboudit!

THE KID BROTHER AND A NATHAN'S HOT DOG.
HE REFUSES TO ENTER THE ANNUAL HOT DOG EATING CONTEST.
ALL HE NEEDS TO DO IS EAT 70 TO BREAK THE RECORD.
THE DOWAGER DUCHESS AND AN ENCYCLOPEDIC DINER MENU.
THE DOWAGER DUCHESS'S PURPLE NAILS.
NOTE THE COORDINATING PURPLISH LIPSTICK IN THE PREVIOUS SHOT.

THE BOARDWALK, CONEY ISLAND. WHO KNEW CHAMPION BRAND
UNDERWEAR IS A BATHING SUIT WHEN WORN INSIDE OUT?!?
I'M REALLY TRYING TO "FUHGEDDABOUDDAT"!

Lots more photos (no more underwear) — and stories — to come.

  1. The chap in the last pic must be either brave or foolhardy, seeing as though everyone else seems to be at least reasonably wrapped up.

    Btw: It was snowing here on England's south coast last Tues - not sleet, snow with big flakes, though it didn't settle. Still today I've had the heating on all day. It's getting a bit late to keep wishing for Spring. Summer will now do.

      I think the almost naked guy must like to show off his goods (bads?). You have my sympathy for your weather. That's why so many Brits are here right now!

  5. 'The apple doesn't doesn't fall too far from the tree', I see! Not that you wear nail polish (some of my best friend's wear nail polish!), but you know what I mean.
    Your mom looks great, Mitchell as does your kid brother! He knows he couldn't eat more than 70 hot dogs!!
    Sounds and looks like a good trip was had.
    I bet you guys are cherishing the space and quiet now....what a contrast it must be.

      Chuck just moans when I suggest he enter the hot dog eating contest. "What ah you nuts?!?"

      We were really stunned by the difference in noise level when we got back home.

      That woman would have been a blog post on her own, but she was overshadowed by Champion Man.

      Walmart has not managed to make an appearance in New York City. So Walmart shoppers are forced to go out in public.
