  • Hi Bloggers:

    We want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and Happy New Year. Without the health we have nothing.

    Patsy: The Giants are going down. Andrea and her boyfriend are also at the game and he is a gianat fan and she is for the jets. Kenny instilled that into them when they were babies. She said only one of them are coming home. It should be a great game. Love to you all. Tell Gino I was asking for him. LOVE.........

    LOVE & MISS YOU..XX

  • Hi everyone...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    Wow this has been a very busy and hectic week.....Between baking, shopping, cleaning and cooking I'm exhausted!!!

    Made 5 different cookies and Struffoli....now time for Christmas dinner...

  • Patsy...glad you liked the card and happy 2nd anniversary to your dad. 12/18 was my dad's anniversary, I can't believe he's gone so long :|

  • Hello and Merry Day After Christmas or returns day. Just got back from returning a pair of Carol's slacks that I bought her. Of course the replacements cost $12 and change extra. Oh well. At least these fit her properly. I wear whatever people give me whether they fit or not. But then again, I am a man...Carol has found that the sizes vary greatly from manufacturer to manufacturer. Alfred Dunner size 6P are a completely different fit then other brands.

    She took 3 different sizes into the changing room and came out with the 6P and she said they fit well. Women, you sure are a problem. Can't live with them & can't live without them... :-({|=

  • GOOD AFTERNNON, FRIENDS :)

    HOPE YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS DAY!!!

    WE WENT TO MY SISTER ROBYN'S

    (ABOUT 20 FAMILY MEMEBRS WERE THERE.)..WE HAD A BLAST. IT WAS A VERY NICE BITTERSWEET CHRISTMAS.

    I AM GOING TO TRY TO POST SOME PIX OF OUR BEAUTIFUL PUPPY,

    'ACE GUNNER'.. WHAT A GREAT PUPPY..

    C U ALL, LATER.. :)

  • ACE SHOULD BE ON A GQ COVER FOR PUPPIES.. LOL :cheers:

  • Hey Patsy, We have some cute Alligators down here that Ace could play with. Uh Oh, they may decide that he could make a nice snack!!! He is a cute mutt. I guess dogs are like babies. Everyone thinks that they have the cutest one. :-00

    On Sunday we have to hope that Eli has his game face on. When he goes off, he usually shows it in his expressions. The defense has to concentrate on upsetting Tony Romo. If he gets rattled he will throw interceptions and fumble plenty. Maybe the Giants can upset the Dallas wacky defensive co-ordinator. When he goes off the deep end, the Dallas Defense plays worse. :compress:

  • WOW HAPPY DAY AFTER XMAS EVERYBODY

    I WAS SO BUSY AND I ENJOYED EVERY MIN. OF IT

    ALL WENT OFF GREAT

    GOT SOME COOL STUFF

    BUT SEEING THE KIDS OPENING THERE GIFTS

    WAS PRICELESS

    XMAS DAY WE WENT TO 12 AVE TO SEE THE LIGHTS

    FIRST TIME FOR ME IN 3 YEARS

    IT WAS THE BEST

    TO SEE ALL THE PEOPLE WITH THE SMILES ON THERE FACES

    MAN I ALMOST STARTED TO CRY

    WELL I WILL BE SEEING YOU ALL SOON

  • Good Morning Everyone,

    Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.....we all went to moms and had a great time....I have to brag a little because my husband and I got a really surprising and beautiful gift from my kids...they are sending us on a CRUISE in May!!!!!!!!! We couldn't believe it....can't wait.

    Anthony - So happy you had a great Christmas, you sound so happy and I am so happy for you.

    Patsy - Ace is ADORABLE!!!!! I hope I love my grandkids like I love my Yorkie!!!! LOL LOL LOL

    Anna - Glad you had a good Christmas...I am sure your daughter had a wonderful time cooking in her new home.

    Hi Warren, Debbie and everyone else...

    Have a great day..

  • Hey Anthony, No question about it. Your eyesight back is the best Christmas present you could ever get. I like your analogy of the best thing being watching the kids open their gifts. We talked to each of our children Christmas day and my two boys and their families were together at my one son's house. They get together each year. Christmas eve at one house and Christmas day at the other. My Daughter was going to her in-laws with her husband and her two children. Both her kids are in College and got home for the Christmas break. Family is everything, especially at Christmas time. We miss them of course but we do like it here in Florida. When we first moved here we would go North for Christmas and the kids took turns coming down here for summer vacation. Time changes everything and with our Grandchildren ranging in age from 8 to 20, each wants to do there own thing.With 3 in college, 1 in H.S. & 3 in Grammar schools their parents lives have changed dramatically. They all keep in touch with us and when we needed one of them to be here during my Heart Surgery my Daughter dropped everything and came down here for a week to help Carol. The love is close by even though the miles seperate us geographically. :sunny:

  • Update: Carol was able to cook & enjoy Christmas dinner. We had a Turkey breast, Stuffing (my favorite part of the meal)& Mashed Potaoes & Gravy. I had peas & Carol had salad. Her system is doing pretty good after a rough week before Christmas. My Ticker still flutters sometimes but they told me to expect that. So far the A-Fib is staying away.

    We will not know if Carol will need surgery on her Paraesophagul Hernia until January 27th when she sees her Gastro Doc again. They will not take me off Coumadin or the Heart Meds until at least 6 months free of problems.Right now we are both doing pretty well, enjoying our Christmas gifts and waiting for the floor guy to come and replace faulty Vinyl in the Master bath. :bigsmurf:

  • HI WARREN.. GALD YOU & CAROL ARE BOTH FEELING GOOD!!

    STUFFING IS MY FAVORITE PART OF THE MEAL, TOO.

    I AM COOKING A BIG TURKEY DINNER NEW YEAR'S DAY.

    :D-Y

    HI JUDY.. WHAT A GREAT GIFT!!! YOU GUYS DESERVE IT. :-)

    YES, I ALWAYS SAY.. " WILL I LOVE MY GRANDCHILDREN AS MUCH AS I LOVE MY GRAND DOGGIE" .. LOL

    We will have a quiet New Years eve which has been the case for several years now. We used to either have a big party or go out but not lately.

    Carol had a couple of rough days but is doing fairly well again. Aside from me being grouchy, I am feeling pretty good. Still get fatigued quickly when trying to do anything. Also have some shortness of breath. Otherwise pretty good. :jocolor:

  • Just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Let this year be better for us all and bring good health to all that needs it. Love to all from me and Kenny.

  • Hey Joe, Whatsamatta? Hope you feel better and go into the New Year with Gusto & Enthusiasum!

    I remember so well what New Years Eve was like in the Slope. We could go out in the evening but we had to be home at Midnight for a family toast. Then we could go out again and visit friends. People went from house to house to greet each other and have a drink and maybe a snack. While most had little, they shared it with all comers. One of our stops was at the Brown house.There are a few people here on the blog know who I mean. Ma Brown gave me my first taste of wine. Just a little in the botom of the glass. Of course by being out we missed some of the people who stopped at our house but my Mother would fill us in about who stopped by. At Midnite (after the family toast) we would go outside and bang pots & pans (my Mother guarded her good ones). Real noisemakers were unheard of and too expensive. When we got home for good we would listen on the radio as midnight occured across the country. When California chimed in at 3AM our time, that was it. Off to bed. I am afraid that many of today's kids do not know what "make do" means. they get all the fancy gadgets and seem to think that it was always like that. Happy New Year to you all.... :geek: =DB

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY PARK SLOPER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

    I WISH ALL GOOD HEALTH...HAPPINES...LOVE...AND PEACE...LETS BRING THE NEW YEAR IN THE RIGHT WAY...WHEN WE WERE KIDS BANGING THE POTS AND PANS,LIKE WE DID IN PARK SLOPE...

  • Hi, This is posted on 'back when'It was suggested that I post it here also.

    My great grandfather, John Bruno, had a grocery store on the corner of 6th ave & 17th st until it was taken (bought)for the construction of the Prospect Expressway.

    That's when he came to live with us on east 5 st and ave U.

    He died in 1957.

    Does anyone remember?

    Well back to work....Holidays are over....hoping everyone has a wonderful 2012....

    Terry -Your grandkids are so adorable.....

    Cold out there today..

    Have a great day!!!

  • I am still basking in the Giant victory but not in the Florida warmth. There "aint none". Very cold last night and this morning and it may drop into the high 20's tonight. Bring in the Brass Monkeys.... 8-[

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    FREEZING OUT THERE.. :bounce:

    HAVE A GREAT DAY & STAY WARM.. :-)

  • Hey you Northerners,

    Keep your damned cold air up there. It is freezing here in Florida and it is going below freezing again tonight. There will be plenty of shrubs & plants biting the dust. January is not the best time to come to Florida despite what the Travel Agents & Chamber of Commerce tells you. Yes, we have sunshine but it would not melt a "Bungalow Bar". Remember them folks? If you got an Ice Cream stick that had Bungalow Bar written on the wood, you got a free one next time he came to your block. Did not happen too often.

    I am already getting psyched about the Giants playoff game on Sunday. If Eli can keep playing like he has lately and the defense stands up, they will win!!! :bounce:

  • Bungalow Bar was my favorite, until I left the Bronx at age 7 and moved far upstate, where it did not exist.

    I miss it still!

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    HI WARREN.. YES, BUNGALOW BAR..VAGUELY I REMEMBER.

    I REMEMBER GOOD HUMOR.. WAITED FOR THOSE BELLS TO

    RING EVERY NIGHT..LOL

    NOT AS COLD OUT TODAY LIKE IT HAS BEEN.

    ENJOY YOUR DAY, PEOPLE.. :-)

    (WISH HE'D FIND A WIFE)..LOL

    EVERYONE.. HAVE A GREAT NIGHT. XX :-)

  • The weirdest thing about getting cold down here is the people who deny it! The snow birds try to walk around in shorts & sleveless shirts & blouses. Year round people dress according to the temps. I figure 1/2 of the birds only bring what you see them wearing and the other 1/2 are in denial. They came to Florida for warm sunshine in the winter and refuse to admit we have deep cold spells. Granted, our winters are much shorter then up north and we do not get snow but we do have nights & some days in the 30's or even 20's in January, early February and the end of December. Also when you live here year round your blood thins and you feel the cold more.

    Went to the Hard Rock Casino today. Lost a litle but had fun. When we were leaving about 3:30pm the place was getting packed. I asked some of the workers if they knew why so many people they had no idea, but the Valet Car driver told us they had been pouring in since noon???? On a Thursday??? Unemployment is 10% in this part of Florida and salaries here do not match those up North. Where is the money to gamble coming from??? :scratch:

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    NOT TOO BAD OUT THERE TODAY. TOMORROW 50 DEGREES.

    SUZIE..THANX SO MUCH FOR YOUR NEW YEAR'S CARD. I DON'T

  • Okay Terry, the cold spell finally broke. Beautiful this afternoon after 4 or 5 days of freezing temperatures. Was in the 70's today finally! Do not know how many crops were lost. They spray the Strawberry Plants with water when it reaches 32 degrees and that keeps them safe. The Gulf water is 58 degrees. That is too cold for swimming or wading.

    Jerry, congrats to you & your wife on your 60th. You are just a few years ahead of Carol & I. We will celebrate our 52nd in June.

    Rose, I am happy to say that at this moment Carol only has some back pains and is eating okay. At her next appointment with the Gastro Dr.,later this month, we will find out what the next step is for her digestive problems. I get very tired easily but otherwise am doing okay. Glad to see you back.

    Met several Giant fans wearing Giant shirts, hats etc;, in Publix today. Do not know where they have been hiding all season??? :clown:
