I will be brief but sincere, joyous and thankful in this posting.First I would like to thank all of you who have opened thier hearts and welcomed me back both privatly through e-mail and openly on these boards.I am Back!This morning, early I completed the final design for my mothers berevment announcement and feeling a begining of closeur deceided to treat myself to lunch at Peter Lugar's. Lugar's the rock. Constant, dependable. The best at what they do. I've never heard a comment to the contrary. Democratic, among those with resources to poo - poo at the fact that I could have bought 100 MacDonalds double cheese burgers for the cost of todays lunch. I thank who ever it is I should thank that things like that only make me smile. Democratic? Particulaly during lunch; a minling of wall street movers and shakers in Brooks Brothers and Prada along side guy who work, constructon guys, guys in Timerland and Levis. Also, women that make my knees shake. There's nothig more beautiful then a woman chowing down on a hugh hunk of prime beef. Most of my "failed" relatonships have been with "salad eater".I love to watch US greenbacks go flying across Lugar's 100 year old butcher block tables.After lunch I walked over the Williamsberg Bridge and for the first time in 6 months was saturated with optimistic fernetic energy that is New York. I breathed the city air and felt my lungs, my heart and my soul expand.I found myself at the corners of Washington and Watts Streets; requested a between seating chocolate souffle with a Chowhound's sincerity and desire and could not be refussed. This is New York. If you need it, are respectful and apprecitive you will not be sent away.I'm home, thank you very much.
