Scaffolding Post

Post Stuffington. Turkey. Family. Balloons. All fun and happy after the Thanksgiving respite. And. Speaking of Post.

The New York Post has two front page stories about how the ugly scaffolding epidemic has blighted The City. The Scourge of Scaffolding.  And.  Why Scaffolding Stays Up So Long.

I did send them my blogs about it and the recent West Side Rag story. So. Maybe they got the idea from me?

Finished The Crown Season 3. Learned so much about the history of that time. The plight of coal mines, global crises which escaped our near-sighted American-centric focus. As is still true today. We are obsessed with impeachment while Iraq, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Hong Kong, NATO …  For real news have to watch BBC.

Most importantly. Niners lost to Ravens. Maybe a re-match at SB?

Where Is Everybody?

Watching the Schiffty Schiff Show? Cool. Got the whole UWS to myself. Nancy Pelosi has declared bribery as the poll-tested word of the day, so it sounds more like a clearly impeachable offense.

Even if Trump isn’t ousted by the Senate, Deval Patrick is now in the race. So. All good. No need to focus on the election. It’s in the bag.

Speaking of bag. Time to revisit Stuffington Post to get ready to cook traditional recipes for a happier day.

Enduring Edges

As we confront conversion to robots and drones taking over our everyday lives. Hearken back to another time. The clang clang of a bell out the window. Mister Softee? No. Much more resonant. Like a trolley. What could it be? Mike taps the disk with a blade. A relic from 1941 still serving the community. The Knife Sharpening truck. And a customer. Perfect after Turkey-carving day.

Or. For those scissors to cut down NO PARKING signs.

Balloonistas from far and wide have left the ‘hood. Bleachers still up. Banging and clanging to come for the annual return of our sidewalk. Soon. We hope. Along Central Park West. Can park on our block again. Even if the No Parking signs linger. Scissors at the ready or they’d be up until May.

A rollicking fun weekend. Delicious non-turkey feast at the Oxbow. Parades. Family visits. Post Stuffington Frittata. Respite from politics. Even if. Some wore their opinions on t-shirts for lively dinner conversations. Until next year.

Table Talk Pie

table-talk-720x472Dreading Stuffington Post Drudge. Politics topic. Skip it. Typically topples Thanksgiving tables. How to avoid faces full of pie?

Never speak of the one who must not be named. Talk about cute Kimmie Schmidt. Or being up Schitt’s Creek. Discuss West World theories. Stranger Things. Who is creepier couple. Eleven and Dustin. Or. Maeve and Man in Black. Contemplate Trace Decay. Time travel. Parallel story lines. Divergent pasts. Artificial intelligence. I told you not to mention … that turkey.

Political conversation this Thanksgiving a first. Family rarely let it all hang out. For many reasons. But, 2015 has given birth to new voices. Apolitical siblings are all Trump. Independent-minded moderates can’t find a Republican they like. Rubio a rube. Ted snarly. Bush lite. The usual moon bats prefer Bernie and don’t like Hillary much, but Supreme Court appointees brought everyone together. Bottom line. Hillary may pull it off.

Watched Amy Schumer’s Train Wreck. Hader and Swinton were great. Otherwise. Okay.

In Sports news. Joey3Sticks picks Denver over New England. Yes. You heard it here. Injuries over talent. But, hey. AFC. They are all girls anyway. Go Giants!
