  • Patsy, I am not sure of the exact location of the Legion but it probably is the same place you know of. So much has changed since I was active in Bay Ridge, I would not even recognize a lot of it. I belonged to the Bay Ridge Masonic Club which was on the corner of 4th Ave and I believe 77th st. It was across the street from the K of C. I think the club is long gone. Ovington Alleys is gone? How about the Alpine Theater on Fifth Ave. Back in the 40"s or early 50's I went to the Alpine with my Mother to see Gene Kelly in "The Pirate". We took the 5th Ave Trolley out and back! The Bay ridge Masonic Temple on 69th St below 4th Ave is I do not know what now? My Parents were both laid out in Waldeck's Funeral Parlor on 4th Ave and I think 78th St. I believe it is part of a chain now. Of course, building the Verazzano Bridge took out quite a bit of the Shore Road area. Is Ft Hamolton still there?

  • Good Monday morning to all.
    Had a nice Fathers day. Heard from all three of my children. Of course two of them are Fathers also so I had to wish them right back. We had our usual Sunday Champagne brunch with a carnation presented to all the Fathers and later had our Church Service. I was asked yesterday to take part in two services next week. One here where we live and one at a neighboring Independent/Assisted Living facility.

    Saturday we had a very good show in the afternoon. The fellow who performed is an excellent impressionist and a good singer. At night we had a movie. "Saving Mr. Banks". It was pretty good. I thought the acting was superb and NO CUSS WORDS.

    Tomorrow (Tuesday) night I am going to see the Rays play the Orioles in Tropicana field. It is a bus trip so I do not have to worry about driving or parking. To those who think older people just sit around in an Independent Living Facility, you are very wrong!
  • Hi-hope everyone enjoyed their special day yesterday..been so busy-spent 4 hours on the phone today just with change of address for S.S., credit cards etc. getting my plane ticket for July 6th..i had so much fun ordering furniture-closing is July 3rd so I had to order 2 mattress sets, 2 bedroom sets, and a living room a kid in a candy store!!! swimming pool is in and the interior is being finished already!  landscaping is also put in!!  my niece & family will be coming down the week after I arrive so I think I'll be quite busy this summer.  Tina & Scott & Justin may come the end of July (Justin wants to see Minnie & Mickey)..still have a long "to do" list but taking it one day at a time.  Have to be out of my apt. by June 30th. will try to get on here by the end of the week.. bye
