Went down to Brooklyn to see Mimi and Tim and Eleanor and 'give them their presents.
Josh, Cathy and the three Bradley girls were with us in Cheshire for the Eve and Day and Day After.
For the first time ever, I hit 60 mph on the New York Expressways to Brooklyn. The traffic in CT was worse!
It was great to see them--we love them so!
They live in a neighborhood of Brooklyn that boarders on Williamsburg so you see lots of Hasidic Jews with their fur hats and black clothes as you make your way back to the expressways.
On one block we saw several scantily dressed blond women (it wasn't very cold today) jogging past families of Jews all dressed in heavy black clothes. Quite a contrast of cultures.
The drive, back and forth in one day, tightens up my knees.
But it was worth it. Mimi and Tim and Eleanor live on the 13th floor of a lovely high-rise. The building doesn't even try to hide the unlucky 13th floor by calling it 14th.
Eleanor is a little over 3 !/2 and is into Barbie's. A little early, but she is exceptional.
Last year I gave everyone red Make America Great Again hats (JUST KIDDING! I gave them blue WE'RE STILL HERE hats designed by Michael Moore and Bill Mahar.
This year I gave Tee-shirts.
Josh's said: I'M NOT ARGUING, I'M EXPLAINING WHY I'M RIGHT. So Josh.
Mimi's said: I'VE TURNED PARENTING INTO A SCIENCE: EVERY DAY IS AN EXPERIMENT.
Hope you had a great Christmas with those you love, as we did.
