Very ambitious, Sue!  I love corn on the cob...who doesn't?  Your husband must be on Cloud 9 since the work for his garage(s) has begun.😉

My daughter Judy lived on 56th and 6th Avenue when she was first married.  They were there until our grandson Jack was one years old.

You mentioned a daughter who worked for a radio station.My oldest daughter worked for a cable tv show back in the 90’s.

A friend of mine used to love in Forest Hills, Queens. She insisted she lived in the suburbs of "The City".

 

Although, driving thru Forest Hills, it is more suburban than some of the actual suburbs.

Forest Hills has a section that is considered to be the most exclusive in Queens,Forest Hills Gardens.

I wish we had room in our freezer to store a bunch of corn like that! :classic_biggrin: Although probably not corn from this year. I think it was because of the drought/water shortage. Most of the corn we had this year had small crunchy kernels, not large and juicy as it is most years. :classic_sad: We will have to subsist on Green Giant frozen cobettes this winter. :classic_sad:

Very modest and a solid drummer who will be greatly missed. Most people don't know that he was a really great jazz drummer.

There is an online listing of the supposed 150 greatest drummers of all time .They have Watts as 49.Ron Bushy did not make the list which shocked me.

Quite possible that is the area I'm thinking of.  A lot of older, Tudor style homes selling for a million $$+

Whenever I hear Forest Hills, I think of when the West Side Tennis Club hosted the US Open tennis tournament.  I recently learned that the old Forest Hills Stadium also hosted many concerts and is still used as a concert venue.  Would be interesting to see a concert there, given its history.

Forest Hills Stadium had great concerts in the 1960’s,everyone from Barbra Streisand to The Rolling Stones .

Tickets could be as high as $6.50 .I still have my stubs.

I saw Zac Brown Band there around 6 or 8 years ago. Great acoustics, not a bad seat in the house. Concession stands were food trucks parked outside but they had every imaginable  cruisine & craft brew under the sun. Highly recommend. We'd said we'd go back some day but never did.

I have not been there since the 60’s.

I hate lists like that. It’s too subjective. You can’t really compare drummers against drummers. They are artists with their own creativity.

Packing up for the long trip back home to TX. Lots of tears already. Hard to say good-bye to my munchkins.

I hope this worked because it took almost forever to try and get the picture in here.

I never had an accident while driving.The closest was when teenagers in a car attempted to force me off a road.

 

Speaking of close accidents… June 2019 we were in Kentucky on our way to a wedding in Ohio.  Don’t remember the highway(I think I-71) but after topping a hill we were heading down a long hill when suddenly everyone in front of us started hitting their breaks.  My wife was driving.  I remember her looking in the rear view mirror and saying we are going to get hit. Being in the right lane she swerved onto the right shoulder with others.  The SUV directly in front of us and the semi truck behind us served to the left.  The only thing the wife saw when looking in the rear view mirror was the grill of the truck. 

IF I am able to post the picture, we were between the SUV and truck before we went to the right.

I also get up to a dollar off per gallon of gas with Kroger discount 

Forgot about the gas discount.  In our town Kroger does not have a gas station so my daughter in LR takes advantage of the discount.

Nowadays, the service fee for the privilege of buying a ticket is easily twice that.
