“And just remember, the best thing about kids… is making them!”
“Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every ten minutes.”Thornton Melon
WILL kids be going back to NYC public schools this upcoming Monday? Absolutely not because it’s Yom Kippur. So it’s shul for some and a good beach day for others. Come Tuesday, who knows? Which is a phrase that sums up many fall traditions now that Autumn has arrived. Will there be trick or treating and a parade on Halloween? Who knows? Will there be a Columbus Day parade? Who knows, and possibly not ever again in NYC – but public schools will be closed. Will there be family get-together’s on Thanksgiving? Who knows …but it will still take place on the fourth Thursday in November, there will be a lot of turkey on the plate and Lions and Cowboys on TV, and no school. A NYC Marathon gracing Vernon Boulevard? Not in 2020. Christmas sales and decorations and caroling in early November? Highly likely. Oktoberfest? Possibly, in spontaneous and hopefully socially distanced outbreaks while the weather holds and the beer flows freely outdoors. Let’s start with that vision and keep our fingers crossed for school and the rest…
