This is Fleet Week which honors the Navy and Marine Corps. Begun in 1984, there are visits by a number of U.S. ships and there is a visible presence of sailors and marines in New York City. Welcome to New York City and thank you for all you and your colleagues around the world do on our behalf.
Sailors in Times Square
The summer has arrived and it's hot. I promise not to complain about the heat, as I did so much complaining about the snow and cold. I am limiting myself to complaints about winter and promised I wouldn't complain when it got hot. One of my goals for this weekend is a few new summer shirts. Up until today it didn't seem necessary, but I realize my wardrobe won't get me through the summer. It's very warm on the subway platforms.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I spent the afternoon at the theater with a friend we had a nice walk and visit, too. Tomorrow I'm planning to spend time with my cousins and on Monday I hope to get to Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn with friends for the Civil War Memorial. There is a great post about this on one of my favorite blogs, Mille Fiori Favoriti. Good wishes and sweet dreams!
