A little bit of Houston in the air

Our two family Thanksgiving feasts were too delicious. Food was quickly inhaled that I forgot to take pictures of the full display. 

We have one of Clam stirring his delicious stuffing for all to savor later.

My only contribution – ratatouille

Given our gluttony, we went to several parks.

September in New York

September bleeds into October as autumn breezes finally blow away the city heat. Without giving the leaves a chance to accommodate the new season, the temperature dropped 30 degrees in one day. More and more our eyes gaze towards the future: musicals, nuptials, travel, employment. And of course, our current jobs.

Scallop, as anxious as ever, continues her presentations and research, steadily buffing her academic credentials. I continue my clinical duties, with a plan for being an EPIC superuser during Weiler’s transition.

Though the stillness of winter approaches, the thrill of discovery courses through our veins. This week was no exception.

On Wednesday, we took in the sights of a Yankees Red Sox game. Though Citi Field has a more picturesque interior, the exterior of Yankee stadium is certainly imposing.

Of course, I can’t forget to mention the Lion King, which we saw earlier this month. I rather enjoyed the spectacle, but other shows we’ve seen have better songs. The costumes, however, were some of the best I’ve ever seen. I especially enjoyed the elephant and her baby, though the cheetah, too, seemed very limber.

Later on this week, we had a lovely brunch with a rather spicy bloody Mary. While waiting for a table at this trendy East Village establishment, we sauntered over to Washington Square for some beautiful pictures, followed by traipsing through the Green Hill Cemetery and a stop at the Brooklyn Museum.Washington Square ArchIMG_3341

To close the week, we enjoyed a taste of the fare at Katz’s Delicatessen while admiring the street artwork.

Hmmmm, warm and tender pastrami on rye.
