Pudding Accident and the Rest of NYC

So then, after Peepy was rescued at the New York Public Library, we met up with our friend, LA TIMES Book Award winner Coe Booth . . .

Coe recently spent a year in Switzerland as a writer-in-residence at Laurenz Haus. It was fun catching up with her over pasta! Later, Coe took treated us Rice to Riches in SoHo. . .

Yummy! Peeps and I took some Rocky Road rice pudding back with us and boarded the subway for Park Slope where we were staying. Only, we got lost and exited two subway stops AFTER our exit and it was raining and then we dropped our rice pudding all over the sidewalk and Peeps got in a mood because she doesn't like to be damp.

It was all very tragic. Except that we didn't let it get us too down because Peepy and Moi were REUNITED. Plus, we were heavily medicated . . .

The next morning it was off to New York's Chinatown to visit the kids at 131 Dr. Sun Yet Sen School . . .

Later, our visit was even in the newspaper . . .
(If you can't read Chinese, I will translate the headline for you. It says: "Peepy Was Lost, Then Found, and She and Lisa Had a Wonderful Time in NYC and Visited This Great School")

It was a lovey end to a marvelous trip, although I did come home with this . . .

I know I've mentioned this before, but have you noticed that when you are in a relationship, there's always one person (me) who thinks the things that come out of their nose and red sore throats, etc. are interesting. But when you try to show them to the other person (Hubby) they get upset for no good reason.

I'm just sayin'.

Oh, and I'm home now, back in Southern California and I've finished my Christmas shopping and holiday cards!

Also, SECRETS OF DROON author Tony Abbott asked me to write something for him. Here an essay about my office . . .

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
