    I grew up in NYC also, I moved out to California 22 years ago. Just as all the urban renewal was hitting. NYC has always been an amazing city, even more amazing now! I had to get out, I just couldn’t take another freezing cold winter there. I go back and visit my family often, but never in the winter. Spring and summer is magical in the City. I do miss the electricity in the air and all the people.

    Great shot.
    I had to learn “How To Take Care of Myself” from an early age, it was a tough place.
    it ain’t boring, as I recall. I finally left for the last time in the early eighties. I been in New Mexico and California since then. I mostly only go back to NYC for funerals.

    The winters are tough, even worse upstate, where I find myself mostly these days

    As I recall, February-March are brutal months, temps dip into the teens.

    Yep, it's bulletproof and cannot fold, just curve a bit.

    Ah, you got these there as well. I can never figure out what exactly does the reflection show. I start off comparing minute details of the reflected image to what I can see around me, usually objects, colors, etc. but knowing by now that this approach will inevitably fail, I'll switch to a less scientific method of simply trying to determine if anything in the mirror is moving.

    We’re already there. Ditching the leather on this morning’s dog walk in favor of down. The late winter months are definitely the worst because it’s almost over.

    Went with leather today after all. This 689h and a couple thin wool layers kept me toasty in the mid twenties. 1BBF48F0-DF0E-4634-A607-C325DC4D1FCF.jpeg

    What Jacket Are You Wearing To The Beach Today?

    Brought the new Thedi down to my local beach for the first time. Moody weather, intermittently sunny then rainy with fairly strong North winds, and decent waves. The strong current made my swim much faster. Hardly anybody out, it's getting colder, with storms expected this week.

    Great! I must find a Bates, no doubt. And a fisherman sweater like yours too.
