Stage One

The weather was in a good mood on Wednesday and I managed to leave St. John's and make it to Newark just in time to be greeted by a thunderstorm. I can't seem to get away from the elements.

I am still visiting my aunt in Brooklyn but tomorrow I meet my friend Carol in front of the Met and the art trip begins. I'm keeping a journal and my camera is fully charged to remember all important parts of the adventure for future blogging.

It looks like Kathy and I will meet next Wednesday for lunch. I'm excited . Pictures are planned. It seems hugs will be in order - I have to follow all instructions from Don.

Dear Margaret,

I am sorry that I have not been around.

I just learned from Katharine's blog that you will be meeting up with her and I wish I could be there to. Enjoy your lunch and visit to the museum.

Warmest regards,
Egmont

Margaret, sounds like a wonderful trip. I hear from my son whose family did the Five Boroughs Bicycle Ride on Sunday in NYC that the tempearture was 90 degrees! That's quite a change from your snowy pictures. For them as well -- mid-week they got almost a foot of snow at their home in Vermont.

I look forward to tales of meeting with Kathy. She is such an inspiration.
