Hard to believe it’s already November. Where did summer go? And Autumn? Next week, election. Normally, I’m an election addict. I love it the way other people love sports.
Politics is my sport. Not this year. Too much at stake. See you next week, by which time (presumably) the votes will have been counted.
What was your favorite subject in school?
English and art. You didn’t guess?
If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do?
Dust. Vacuum. Dust. Vacuum. And wash the kitchen floors.
Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school? Is it the same place or town you live now?
I lived in Holliswood. In Queens, one of the five boroughs of New York city.
I haven’t lived in New York city since 1964 when I moved into a room near Hofstra, in Hempstead (Long Island, a suburb of New York city). Then, in 1978 I moved to Jerusalem, Israel. Back to Long Island in 1987 and to Boston in 1988. To Uxbridge in 2000 and here we have stayed. I don’t think we’re going anywhere anytime soon.
In your opinion, list some places that are great for shopping?
I do almost everything except grocery shopping online. I don’t get around well — part of the reason — but the bigger reason is I don’t like shopping. Also, we don’t have much shopping locally. The big malls with lots of shops are more than 40 miles and a hour’s drive from here. We have a good lumber yard and hardware store, a few hair dressers. On weekends from spring through fall, you can always find a yard sale. For everything else, there’s Walmart.
So, a lot of stuff comes from Amazon. L.L. Bean. Lands’ End. J.Jill. Adorama. I have a great place for automobile tires, but how often do you buy tires? I patronize places that pride themselves on good customer service. I go where I am treated like a valued customer and they offer free shipping.
Fortunately, the Internet brings choice to the otherwise choiceless. And … they deliver!
