OMG, (in valley speak falsetto) It was Patrick Ewing who was playing when I was there. (Not a huge bball fan so Camby Ewing ...). Always wore a grey tee shirt under uniform. I was 20 feet over on Adams Terrace one street over from Irving. 1982-85 or so. <br><br>So did you ever buy tiger meat from that grocery store at the end of Trowbridge? Was that Savenor's? I think it is not there anymore but I would go back there and check out the weird stuff they had.<br><br>check it out.<br><br>I could never believe the amount of bubblegum stuck on the sidewalk in front of the drugstore right there. I guess you spit it out as you walk in for a fresh load. Ah right next to the laundry which did a fluff and fold for an economical price. <br><br>There is a parking garage 50 feet the other side of Irving on Cambridge St. I still pull into at least four times a year. Free faculty parking 24-7. Quarterly review harvard biolabs.<br><br><br> <br><br><br>(__*__) <-- circular sig when standing
I went in Savenors a couple of times but never bought anything. Too expensive. We always shopped at that grocery store on Cambridge St.--forget the name. It's still there. It was where Julia Child shopped. She lived on Irving St. too, only on the north side of Kirkland, where the money was.<br><br>The house I lived in was interesting. It was a duplex, and the ground floor on both sides was an apartment, pretty sizable for Cambridge. We lived in the ground floor of the Cambridge Street side of the house. The upstairs were all separate rooms, with a common kitchen and bathroom, and there must have been something like a dozen people living on the second and third floors on each side. Some very nice folks. Some very strange folk too. There was one guy, Warren, who was basically a street guy, except that he had inherited some money when he was younger, so he could afford to pay the rent on the room. He smoked these horrible things called Parodis (I called them parodies, cause they weren't real cigars) and stank up the whole house. That was before it was illegal to smoke . Another person who was really interesting was "Gray." Gray had been a woman, but was half way through a sex-change process. Unfortunately s/he had run out of money and was stuck in that in-between stage. That's why s/he picked that name. One of the young women on my side of the building would appear and disappear at really disconcerting times. She was almost ghost-like. We called her Casper. The place wasn't under rent control, but it was reasonable, mostly because the landlord, a fairly rich guy, thought he had a duty to keep rents low. I doubt he owns the place any more. I bet there's no way I could have afforded the cost of that place nowadays.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

So, it's a perfect NYC morning. Clear and cold, the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings standing out sharply against a brilliant blue sky. The kind of day that has me asking WHAT AM I THINKING??? <br><br>But, I'm also incredibly excited about moving back to Boston. Anxious for tomorrow morning to get here. Looking forward to seeing the Hancock and Prudential Towers on the horizon.<br><br>I'm going dark in a few hours (gotta return the cable box and modem), and will be live again by Tuesday. But for now, back to the last of the packing...<br><br>
