Dancing in the Street

I'm not quite dancing in the street, but I am walking much more steadily. Tonight was my next to the last physical therapy session, and I found the exercises easier to do. Hurray! The first few weeks there seemed to be no improvement, but tonight seemed much better. My treat for doing well was a lovely container of sweet, juicy cut up pinepapple. I did a little comparative shopping and found the health food store on my corner was considerably less pricy than the six dollar cost I had in my mind.

Took a subway trip yesterday to the bank closest to my office. While waiting for the train I took this picture of the Manhattan skyline, as seen from Queens. The Empire State Building is to the left of the water tower, and the "S" in the right of the photo is the first letter of Silvercup, a film studio where a number of television shows are filmed.

The Soup Nazi is a real soup store, though it was closed for quite awhile and I'm not sure if it's reopened. It's on either West 54th or 55th St., off Eighth Avenue. This is just a few blocks from one of my previous -- and much lamented -- office locations. I bought soup there once and it was very good, but the thought of standing in line for at least a half an hour to buy a cup of soup made it a once in a lifetime experience. But I did have to try it!

My, that Silvercup building looks so plain, and to think they are filming tv shows in it! Probably very fancy inside with sets and whatnot!

Glad the PT is over. Pineapple is very good for you, eat it often, dearie, it's like a medicine!

Bummer about the Soup Nazi :)

Your picture of the skyline is great - makes me miss my trips to NYC. The picture gives you a nice perspective on getting through PT it sounds though.

Okay - this is funny - my blog is on favorite foods too.

Glad your PT is over and that you went and treated yourself with a pineapple cup!

More about the soup place - 30 minute line? Reminds me of the Jerry Seinfield episode about soup. Was it the same one?

Remember the song - Dancing In The Dark . . .

Thank you so much for answering my question! Wonder what takes them so long to dish up a cup of soup?? I mean I would think it would be a fairly quick moving line...but then I forget that there were certain protocols on the show...you had to stand just so and ask just so...LOL!☺

NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!! Ahhh, loved Seinfeld. I agree with Penniwig, pineapple is medicine! Enjoy!

Oooo... I LOVE pineapple and when fresh, it is full of quercitin which is a natural anti-inflamitory... very good for you if you've been having some kind of P/T. I try to have some as often as possible to help ease the back and hips!
