Ditto!  :-*

And ditto at you, missie.  I missed your Courtliness around here too.  I'm SO glad you are back.

The latest iPhone Album at 421 Broome Street:

At the Spring Street Natural Restaurant, a bartender who asked not to be identified said Ledger often came by in the evening for a drink, which he nursed at a table in the back. He didn't stand out in the crowd.

"We have a lot of celebrities here," he said.


Well, no celebrities yesterday--just us chickens celebrating our own birthdays (Jenny, Meryl and John)! This photo essay is a bit self-indulgent, but--what the hell! It was fun--and what a gorgeous day in New York! (It was even inspired, if you know what I mean, just see below.)

What absolutely lovely images! You look inspi(red) and happy, all 3 of you! Thank you for letting us share your day out.

Happy birthday, Jenny and John!  :-* I guess a lot of people here including me would like to subscribe to the messages in Meryl's lovely b'day cards.

The meal pictures - well, I'm getting hungry for sure! And is that beans I spy? :D

Wow - a cowboy harnessing lightning - the combination of his clothes and the symbolism makes him look like an amalgamation of Ennis and Jack! How perfect is that?

The restaurant looks lovely, and it sure looks like a perfect and balmy late spring day in NYC. 

Big, big hugs to all 3 of you!

What a great way to celebrate your birthdays, in Brokie love

Still hard to see that door though...

But the restaurant certainly looks cheerful, and with an inspiring menu  :P

Thank you once more for sharing  :D.

It looks like a perfect, lovely spring day in wonderful company. I agree with Mouk, it's a great way to celebrate birthdays, in shared Brokie-love.

I enjoyed the photo-essay very much, John. It's not self-indulgent at all. I loved to get to see the place and I love all the details: the (eagle?) feather, the cards, the cowboy painting, the hat charms (mine are around my neck, where they always are), the food and of course you Brokies.

Aaaand:

:D Happy Birthday John!!!  :D


(yes, it's a cake  :laugh:)

Wow, John, you know how to cover a happening!  Wonderful pics indeed, down to the almost-consumed entrees!  ;D  Thanks so much for posting those.  :-*

Sorry I didn't start a birthday thread for you.  I spent my time before going to work sending the PayPal donation to Australia, along with a fax to same.  But here's a proper greeting:



HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN!
You are so easy to assimilate!
  ;)
Ich bin ein Brokie...
