Check out “National Night Out” [2015]!

August 4, 2015

I read about goings on in Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield (that last one mentioned pizza, so that was attractive!), but nothing about any events in West Orange.


Bike & Walk Montclair held a Four Ward Evening Bike Tour, in Montclair. The ride started in the 2nd Ward at the Edgemont Park Field House, and made stops at each event–of National Night Out–in all Four Wards of the town. I biked from home.

The basic schedule:
5:00 pm – Met at Edgemont Park Field House, in the 2nd Ward [Surprise: there was pizza! I had a slice (from Panzano’s) and a bottle of water];

– biked to Salvation Army, in the 3rd Ward [I had two slices of pizza (from Mancinni’s) and a bottle of water];

– biked to the Community Center (11 Pine Street), in the 4th Ward [I had an empanada (from Noches de Colombia) and a bottle of water];

– biked to St. James Church, in the 1st Ward – arrived at 7:00.


Laura Torchio (left) arrived first. Then me. Then a couple of other bikers. Then two policemen, to answer any questions that we had.


We ten. My friends Laura, Gray Russell, Gail Prusslin were among them!

Bike Ride on the Dutchess Rail-Trail

July 21, 2015

I (arose at 7:00 to leave home at 8:00, and) drove up to and over the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, to get to the rendezvous point (in Hopewell Junction, NY), (at 9:45) for the excursion (at 10:00).

We (six NJ people) all biked the 13 miles up to, and then (1.28 miles) over the Walkway Over The Hudson…

This place is OK… if you like GORgeous! — at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen [in Morristown, NJ.]


Such a sunlit dining room!


Thinking of Karen Schloss + Frank Diaz and Melody Kettle!

It’s hard (even for me!) to believe that
these three (handsome) (young)
men are the same person!

From high school yearbook

to (hand-held) (digital) self-portrait,
my, how time flies…!
