Saturday

first stop

The Eyeman
picked up my 
 new glasses 
they're a smile-y shape
top layer is brown/tortoise shell
middle layer is
heliotrope-ish blue
back/under is brown/tortoise


next 
Super Runners Shop
to buy 
new 'sneakers'
not running 
not jogging
just inexpensive
'sneakers'

salesman said
 I had
 a 
choice of colors


turned out
 they only had
 my size
 in 
one
 color
so
I bought a pair of turquoise laces


next up
Zabars
 waiting at the prepared food counter

a gentleman
 standing next to me 
was showing off 
the fishing lures
 pinned to his cap
 he was telling
 the counterman
 how he makes them
sells them
 to women
 who wear them as pins
 of course
 I admired them
 he took off his cap
 to show them
 to me

 I said
 they're fabulous
 he took off one
handed it to me

 I said its wonderful 
went to hand it back

 he said
 no, its yours


 I thanked him
asking
 how much I owed him
 he said
 its a gift
 I thanked him again
 saying how very nice it was
 how incredibly nice
 he smiled
 tipped his hat


and
Toonman and I
 took a walk
 in 
Riverside Park


I had been told by Susan, 
who reads my blog and lives a little further uptown, 
the park took a very hard hit from Sandy
  

she
 did
not
exaggerate

  of course

 in comparison

 to the devastation
 that is along the shore of NJ LI and SI

 the damage to the park is small

 but 
to me 

it was overwhelming
 to see
 trees uprooted


 trees
 the winds
ravaged



 the piles
 of 
sawed limbs
brush


are
everywhere


 the squirrels
seem as if
they're confused
 their favorite
 nesting places
 are no more 

while taking photos of a downed tree
 a man standing nearby
 pointed up
 look a white tail hawk
 a young one
 not very large


 immediately
 I was kicking myself
 for 
not taking along 
the
 BIG 
lens

 when he pointed out
 the rat
 the hawk 
was munching on

I wasnt 
so 
disappointed
 to 
only 
have 
the 
18-105 kit lens 

you're welcome
