I seriously had a column in mind.
When I left the office to head home, pack and take Lil and Allison to Florida, I knew
Id be writing one on the road.
As I pound this out on the laptop as my girls collapse from a full day
touring Universal Studios, Im on the road but will probably be back home as
youre reading this. I had intended to share with you a typical adventure of a Queens
co-op and the bizarre behaviors that overtake many when they become co-op directors. But
sadly, I left the co-op by-laws I was intending to use sitting on my desk at home and
really wanted to share with you some of the highlights of this popular Queens lifestyle.
So, youll have to wait -- probably till next week -- as will the lucky co-op board I
intend talk about.
Were going to spend one more day in Orlando and make our way to
moms in Boca Raton. Now Boca is like Queens south; its the place to retire. My
mother, mother-in-law and lots of others have made southern Florida an extension of New
York. You expect to run into friends visiting family and family visiting friends when
youre in Boca Queens just isnt far away.
However, when you go to Orlando -- Universal this time -- you
dont expect the home borough to fill your day. Orlando is for fantasy not reality
and Queens, its the center of the real world.
But our day at Universal was filled by Queens. The pictures below share
with you a brief glimpse of our days images of Queens while allowing for me leaving
the co-op by-laws at home and most importantly, letting me join Lil and Allison as we all
try to rejuvenate for another hard days work at vacationing.
