US Postal Service Worker keeping cool, working on his tan.

It's a lovely 73 degrees out right now. 

Everybody loves the sunshine, including this USPS carrier who just rolled up his sleeves while waiting for the light to change.

Scotch with Pa

Pa hoists a glass

After I got the swim in with Ma, Pa and I went down to Piper's Pub and had some Scotch.

It's a shame Pa can't taste as well as he used to. The surgery altered his whole olfactory setup. On the bright side, that reduced sensitivity means I don't have to buy him the top shelf stuff.

Still, we're celebrating – his 65th year, his recovery and his pseudo-retirement. I ordered us some Laphroaig 18.

Busting a Move in McCarren Park

Dancers working to learn a routine

A group of students is learning a routine in – I'm basing this on the moves they're doing – a hip hop dance class on the McCarren Park track. There's a more legitmate crew casually breaking on some cardboard to camera right. I'm on my way to the pool in the distance.

My Neighbors' Ignorance Suggest Imminent Immolation

grill set up by idiots fire imminent

After the smoke clears, after the blaze is put out, after the building is evacuated and my neighbors spared from themselves, while gazing into the ashes below the grill, the NYFD Marshal's brow will unfurrow and he'll grumble:
"Well, there's your problem."
