Monday morning was not the usual a the house. Sue spent the night at her mother's house, so I dropped off Kyle, then work up Luke. Started working from home whole Luke had breakfast and then dropped him a the bus stop at 7:25.
Get to work at at around 10am ask Sue what time Peggy's Dr appointment is. Turns out her Dr. does not have office hours today so Sue helps with laundry, shopping, etc. Not quite the day she had in mind, but hopefully tomorrow the Dr. will be able to make a diagnosis.
This day on history "On April 30, 1939, the New York World's Fair opens in New York City. The opening ceremony, which featured speeches by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and New York Governor Herbert Lehman, ushered in the first day of television broadcasting in New York.
Spanning 1,200 acres at Flushing Meadow Park in Queens, the fairground was marked by two imposing structures--the "Perisphere" and the "Trylon"--and exhibited such new technology as FM radio, robotics, fluorescent lighting, and a crude fax machine. Norman Bel Geddes designed a Futurama ride for General Motors, and users were transported through an idealized city of the future. Sixty-three nations participated in the fair, which enjoyed large crowds before the outbreak of World War II interrupted many of its scheduled events."
I grew up around the Flushing Meadow park area. Actually several miles east in the NYC Housing projects called Pomonok. I do remember frequent bicycle rides to Flushing Meadow to swim at the Aquacade, or to go fishing. As far as the worlds fair, I have some picture and story memories of being two years old in 1964 and toddling around the world fair grounds.
Back at home, we have a nice twin chicken dinner and then its off to Kyle's soccer practice.
And so it goes, and and so it goes.

P.S. Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and get rid of him for the whole weekend !
Soccer was cancelled this morning with neither team getting to play or having to forfeit. No referee and we are now going to have to play in NJ to make up the game. That stinks.
Luke and I do a little grocery shopping after lunch. Some fun on the pool cover and in the lawn sprinklers for Luke. He doesn't need too much to have fun. I remember at his age making up games and having fun like that.
Since I am 49 years old, I decided to soothe the soar shins in the hot tub.
Sue catches up on some laundry, and will be visiting her mom at her house tonight. A sleepover so she can help out at the Drs. Office. They still can’t find out why Peggy Mom keeps getting out of breathe, next specialist will check her lungs better.
This day in history “
Hair was not a brand-new show when it opened at the Biltmore Theater on this night in 1968. It began its run 40 blocks to the south, in the East Village, as the inaugural production of Joseph Papp's Public Theater. Despite mediocre reviews, Hair was a big enough hit with audiences during its six-week run at the Public to win financial backing for a proposed move to Broadway. While this kind of move would later become more common, it was exceedingly rare for a musical at the time, and it was a particularly bold move for a musical with a nontraditional score. Hair, after all, was the first rock musical to make a play for mainstream success on the Great White Way. ”
So nice out, I decided to make grilled chicken Caesar salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and mushrooms on the side. I can’t wait for the farm share to start up so we can have big salads and fresh veggies every night.
Luke asks me to make cinnamon buns…Since they are already in a package, it is pretty easy to comply.
Popped Corn and The Amazing Race coming up.
