Saw my friend Barb from my old job, and we got caught up on gossip. I was sorry to hear how nasty things still are over there. It makes me glad I'm not there and sorry for those who still are. They got a new VP that sounds more grounded, I'm hoping he'll have a positive effect on the management there but somehow I doubt it.

Bought my tickets to go to Florida, yeah! I'll be there just in time to help my sister with my nephew's next round of chemo treatment. I'll be sad to see BIlly feeling lousy but I'm glad I'll be able to lend a hand. Now I have to find people to entertain Frank while I'm gone, I hate leaving him all alone for a whole 7 days! I'll be off on Thursday evening Nov. 14 for seven days, returning on the 21st.

Frank had most of the Halloween candy fun, but I got to give out some of it as well when I got home from work. Most kids were dressed up in costumes. My favorite was the little boy dressed in a Scooby Doo jumper, who thanked me and said it was nice to meet me. SOO cute! I wish I'd been able to see our neighbors girls, but they both came while I was still at work.

I just took peek at the Bonaire web cams... how I miss that place!!

Been a while...
Yesterday I gota phonecall from WFUV, and I taped a "concert memory" for the 'FUV scrapbook. Hope it sounds ok, but like most people I hate the sound of my voice. Here's what I said:

I'm WFUV member Ana Casacuberta, and the Monday after Paul Simon did his free concert in Central Park, I went to see him perform at the Garden State Arts center, an outdoor venue. It was raining pretty hard, and we had lawn seats, but we brought our chairs and umbrellas, determined to have a good time. It soon started raining so hard that it was raining THROUGH our umbrellas. My friend and I looked at each other, decided to forget about the umbrellas, and joined the crowd as we all danced to Paul singing "You can call me Al". It was a magical night, one I'll always remember! And that's my page for the `FUV Concert Scrapbook.

That was as FUN concert! I talked my neighbor Donna into going with me, and we had a blast even though we got SOAKED to the skin (you have any idea how heavy jeans get when wet?) Wonder how Donna is doing... last I heard she'd married a cop in North Jersey and they were making a mint buying/selling collectibles. Good for her!

Last Friday we went to see Lucy Kaplansky & Richard Shindell at Outpost in the 'Burbs. It was a sold out show, but for the life of us we couldn't figure out why. We were very disappointed in the concert, their songs weren't all that great (except one or two) and most of their stuff was boring sounding. We liked Jill Sobule's songs and show SO much more, she should be the more famous one methinks...

Work is SLOW this week. Which I guess is ok because its giving me a chance to catch up on some stuff that needed doing. But its kinda boring too. I'm sure I'll miss days like this in the future so I'm trying to enjoy as well.

Tomorrow is Halloween! I'm doing lunch with my friend Barabara, looking forward to hearing how she's doing, how she's surviving the old job, and planning our NYC daytrip. THAT should be a lot of fun.

Only 48 days to TTT and 15 days to Harry2 !!!
