HOME

It's great to be home. It's going to be a busy week this week, seeing grandkids, hair appointments, doctor appointments, but things will calm down and I can really enjoy being home.

GOODBYE NYC!

We went to see Mr. and Mrs. Fitch at the 2econd State Theatre staring John Lithgow and Jennifer Ehle. It was great.

I'm sitting at the airport waiting for our flight back to Oklahoma City.

Guggenheim

Spent the day at the Guggenheim Museum. It was a good day. Anish Kapoor memory was there. Memory is a 24-ton volume of Cor-Ten steel.

In addition to special exhibitions, the Guggenheim Museum presents permanent collection shows that focus on the museum's areas of interest and specialization. On view now from the collection are portions of the Thannhauser Collection—presenting masterpieces by such artists as Paul C├ęzanne, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, and Vincent van Gogh.

March 20, 1977

Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart. Copy & paste if you are missing a loved one that .........you have lost. - My son, you were not only our Rock but a Rock Star. You are missed EVERYDAY.
_____________________________
Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were an hour old I would have died for you. This is the miracle of life. . . . . . I never got to experience the miracle of life with you but I still love you more than life itself.

NYC

We have been enjoying the cool weather in NYC after the 106 degree weather in India. Laurel said that it was 107 degrees today.

We rode the subway to Chinatown to have Dim Sum. It was awesome food but we also enjoyed all of the stores and watching people.

I got a pedicure, manicure and eyebrows threaded. Feel like a new woman. I just need a new pair of jeans.

9 Deadly Words Used By A Woman

1) Fine
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2) Five Minutes
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3) Nothing
This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4) Go Ahead
This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

5) Loud Sigh
This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6) That’s Okay
This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7) Thanks
A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’ . that will bring on a ‘whatever’).

8 ) Whatever
Is a woman’s way of saying F– YOU!

9) Don’t worry about it, I got it
Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to #3.

Macrame

I have been doing some macrame. I finished one and gave it to Dr. Param Shulka.

This is Dr. Param and I am presenting him my macrame.

He is one of the few people in my life that has changed it. FOR THE BETTER.

Do the best job you can do and leave the rest up to God!

Men at Ben's birthday Party

Snehal, Bob and Torfi.

Snehal and Bob playing with Ben's remote for the helcopter and Torfi checking out Ben's new car.

Laurel, Chris and their 3 boys, 2 of Ben's friends, Raul and YES BEN were also there, but as you see the women, Helga, Laurel, Reasa and I didn't get in any of the pictures. I only had my iPhone. I guess I am becoming a little too India. Maybe Reasa will upload her pictures and I can get a picture of the rest of the party.
