IT'S BEEN AWHILE BUT

I know it's been some time since we posted.  So much happens and sometimes not enough time to do it.  Most of our episodes are on Merle's facebook page.  Marilyn and Minerva have been doing much of the traveling around.  Here are some updates of where they went and mostly what they ate or drank.

They had gone to Shake Shack and brought home leftovers.  I think one of them might be a bit tipsy from that stein of beer.





It was Merle's birthday and her friend Nancy asked to have them join her in celebrating.  Marilyn was looking to steal the plates!



Celebration continued when Merle's niece, Dawn, came to visit.  We went on a ferry boat from Rockaway to Wall Street.  Josh and his assistant met with us.  Dawn made a new friend as Deveka brought her with us.  After the boat ride we ate at a place called Thai Rock.  Marilyn was again about to steal something....Minerva stopped her.









They went to a restaurant called SHI.  It's Asian fusion.  I think that they both imbibed....sake.  They met the manager, Chan.

KEEPING BUSY IN NEW YOLK

I haven't posted in awhile.  Thought I'd let you know what Eunice and I are up to.

A few weeks ago, we went to an art exhibit.  The artist's name is Nina Edwards and she is a fashion artist.  She had her art placed in the window of a space provided by a local group.  It was very pretty and we met a few nice folks as well.









Another art thing going as we went to a sneak peek at an installation called Rewoven.  This fiber art thing will be held at the art gallery of Queensborough Community College.



 Art curator Luchia Lee is helping Lulu Chen
This past week we went to the Rockaway Artists Alliance.  We then went out to eat at a place called Thai Rock.  New friends and very friendly sharing their food with us.




Today we went to Ben's Best Deli and met the owner Jay Parker.

ALLORA IS ALLURING

Eunice and I went to a new Italian restaurant called Allora located at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center in Bayside, Queens.  We gave Marilyn and Minerva the night off and took both children, Ethel Louise and Mildred.

First we toasted the evening with a drink made by the mixologist call Galera Sappore.  Very tasty.  We met him later on at the table.

Yes, we ate. 


We also met Chef Steve

They pulled up a high chair just for the babies who had some Detroit Style Pizza

Great food and drinks here!

ALPACAS AND CHICKENS IN NEW HENSEY AND FUN IN PEGGSYLVANIA

Esther and Eunice here. We had a great time and even brought the kids, Ethel Louise and Mildred. First went to an alpaca farm called Little Brushwood Alpaca Farm located in Newton, New Hensey where  they not only schmoozed with some alpacas but were invited to lunch by some chickens. Some of the alpacas invited them to partake in their lunch as well.


































Afterward,we went to the Silk Mill in Hawley and explored the food market area where they met Gary, the brother-in-law of their friend, Merle. There was a great art gallery where they saw this painting of a different type of chicken. 




Later that evening, we dined at a restaurant called Der Jaeger where we played a round of chess while waiting for our food. We also met the owner. Ethel Louise and Mildred imagined that they were riding on a pony. Finally, the dinner came! I think we ordered too much but wanted to taste the food.






The next day we first stopped at a farmers market called Ritters, then to an old fashioned candy store.



Stayed at the French Manor Inn for the night. Had to take a nap before dinner. 



First needed to tell tell the kids that the food hadn't come out yet and then it did. Talked with the waiter. Had breakfast the next day with some friend of Merle's and met Briget, the owner. 








Stopped at an old fifties place called Chatterbox on the way home where we met Don, the owner and our waiter, Nicole. Ethel Louise and Mildred had a milk shake.








Time to go home.
