This story made my heart happy, Mark. Where I live in the South, retired people stay indoor watching TV or their grandchildren or (Egads!) playing hours of golf. One of the delights of visiting NYC is seeing retired, older people walking the streets, talking breaks at a cafe or to sit on a park bench. They always want to talk. Some have given me tours of the historic and interesting spots in their neighborhoods, always accompanied by juicy and fascinating stories. They all need on of your journals.
