Crazy-Making: Ahmadinejab Protesters, NYPD, Blockades of First Avenue and Other Excitements

Today, dear blog readers, self was finally able to get back on-line.

Why?  Because she is in Penny’s West End Apartment, of course!

Previous to that, self was in cousin’s apartment in Tudor Place, and that area is just crawling with cops, security personnel, UN types, rangers, attack dogs, etc etc etc.  Apparently, the UN General Assembly is in session and Ahmadinejab is in the area and —  one simply cannot believe the chaos!  Even late at night, self looks out the apartment window and sees lines of white vans heading into the UN Compound, guarded by scores of NYPD.  What are they delivering, self wonders?  Surveillance equipment?  Barricades?  Sanitation supplies?

Today, there were protesters waving placards, and groups of black-frocked Hasidim, as well as big, beefy policemen with profanity-laced speech, and even a hot dog and hamburger stand set up for the exclusive delectation of members of the NYPD.

There was an accident that occurred just feet from self and Dearest Mum, at the Northwest corner of Second Avenue and 40th.  (A huge truck broadsided a black limo, which then hit a taxi)

Today, self had the exciting opportunity to trundle Dearest Mum’s luggage all the way from Tudor City Place to Grand Central —  uphill.

After Dearest Mum was safely ensconced in the bus to JFK, after self had told the bus driver to deliver Dearest Mum to Terminal 2, she stood by the sidewalk and waved encouragingly, but Dearest Mum was already on the cell phone to someone and didn’t look up.

Afterwards, the apartment felt strangely empty, so large is Dearest Mum’s vitality and presence.

Now, self has two more days alone in the Splendid City.  The weather here has been gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
