    Hey, my friend.

    What's up with you?

    I had a hard time holding myself together at the rally. All of those beautiful people were out there exhibiting such courage and enthusiasm and I was about to sob like a baby. ha ha

    I did wait until I was walking home and then I babied out.
    One of the great things about NYC is that you can do almost anything on the street and no one even notices. ha ha ha

      That sounds like exactly what I would have done.
      I am watching what is happening in my state as i wasn't able to attend the one nearest to me today.
      I'll be at the next one, believe me.

        part, above and beyond. All I had to do was get up and walk
        straight down the Bowery for about a mile. Even with the heat, it was no challenge. One Police Plaza is a very convenient location for me. Then I just had to walk about a mile back. I walk everywhere I go in NYC for the most part, so I was really lucky.

        I did not want to go down into the train stations today. uh uh
        Those stations are like ovens after one day of 90 degree heat, let alone seven days and many over 95. That would have been torture.
