Escape(d) from New York

Dear patient readers, I arrived in Birmingham more or less uneventfully, given the givens, last Friday, after a frantic two days of movers packing and loading their truck, and other types hauling out things that were not going with me, from lighting fixtures to furniture to designer clothes and shoes. And it wasn’t as if the weeks before that were a walk in the park. A big round of applause goes to Lambert and Jerri-Lynn for stepping in and doing far more than their usual duty to enable me...

Dear patient readers, If you are in the New York City area, I hope you will join me on my very last Sunday in New York before I depart the city for good. Yes, I expect to be back regularly, but it is still hard leaving after nearly 40 years. So I hope I can treat this as a farewell party of sorts.

Wednesday June 12 Meetup in Cleveland and Thursday June 13 in Chicago?

Dear patient readers, Even though I will be overbusy in June with my upcoming move, the flip side is that thanks to being able to engage a “moving concierge,” the hardest part, sorting out what gets gotten rid of in some manner is ahead of schedule. As a result, I would like to see if there is reader interest in a meetup on Wednesday June 12 in Cleveland and then Chicago on Thursday June 13. Reader Carla R has been lobbying for a Cleveland meetup but could use guidance as to where would be...

Gabriel, R.I.P.

On April Fool’s Day, a Monday, I took my cat Gabriel to the vet. In 48 hours, he’d had two bouts of incontinence, each time leaving a wet urine spot in my bed when he’d gotten up. An internet search on feline incontinence had been reassuring, so I was hopeful that a round of antibiotics would bring him back to normal. But the doctor who could see him that day, a striking, stylish older woman who liked to be called “Dr. T,” a partner of Dr. Putter, the vet who’d handled Gabriel since he was a...
