New York:  May 13 - 14

I notice that if you walk into a store still wearing your helmet (either the flying hat or the hard shell motorcycle helmet) people look at you like you're wearing that on your head because you've just escaped from the loony bin and have to wear it to protect your head from personal injury.  If you ever want to pass as demented, wear a helmet.

I am going to class with Irving again today.  Remember I met him at Oxford so it is no wonder he loves and lives in class.  His brain will never tire and he claims he will live to be 100 because he takes supplements.  I don't doubt it for one second.  I miss his wife Christina and I haven't even left yet--she and I would be fast chums if she'd only live a little closer. 

From the article I promised you about Vassar:  "Lisa (of the Simpsons) says she won't be able to get into an Ivy League school and adds, 'At this rate, I probably won't even get into Vassar.' But Homer responds, 'I've had just about enough of your Vassar-bashing, young lady.'"  It was a Vassarite who steals Sinatra's business and his heart (evidently) in "Robin and the Seven Hoods." 

This afternoon I retrieve Seno from the hands of the Rescue Squad--the 3 guys responsible for tending to my dream even when I've been thinking lately of a nice plane ride home.  Everybody here seems to be working towards getting me back on the road for the second half.  I have come 4,500 miles and I have 4,500 miles to go.  I thank Bearsa, Carolyn the Fox, Lipstick Liz, Snowman and Al for the encouraging emails.

The eggs cooking at campsite -- KOA Augerties, NY Jane and Larry (real RVer's) from Staten Island, NY are stunned at Seno, the world's smallest RV and that Alyce spent the night in the car. (Very comfortable actually.)
..
A creative 2-story gazebo in Veteran, NY No Blue Meanies around -- just Catskill Mountains surround the Yellow Submarine.
..
Carol sold the purple bag but blessedly kept the purple bowling ball. The only lounge singer I saw in the Catskills.
..
Tell-it-like-it-is advertising.
Seno goes to Vassar -- the Alumni House with the delicious quiche for breakfast.
...
Robby and Kelley (Vassar student) rolled out the red carpet for the purple car. Will, sent by AAA, helps duct tape Seno's fender on the off ramp of the Hudson River Bridge.  OF COURSE ALYCE HAS RED DUCT TAPE!
..
Irving and his teacher Jan and the very entertaining writers. Ross and his remarkable 1939 Ford -- perfect car for former trooper and DEA Agent.
..
The squad car's superb details -- olde tyme radio microphone. Ross -- armed and dangerous.  The very convincing machine gun in all wood.
..
Irving calls for his lawyer from the back seat of the cop car.  So far as I know he is only guilty of amazing generosity. Alyce bookended by TEAM NEW YORK -- the Rescue Squad Par Excellence -- ANGELS Ross and Joe.
