Just got back from NY city and a wonderful week with Judy. Brief but fun. On the agenda...we'll we saw a Broadway play (Wicked),
I went to Coney Island (more on that later),
hung with Michelle Ward who took us to the site of the building featured on the Led Zeppelin album cover Physical Graffiti,
One night we had dinner with a relative of Judy's who has lived in the city since '52...in fact he used to do Marilyn Monroe's hair...sorry he wouldn't give up any gossip....anyway he gave us a great tour of Columbus Square and Greenwich Village.
