I just got back in. I walked to Lawrenceville to visit my niece, Sandy, at her pottery shop. She’s the owner of Kiln N Time at 3801 Penn Avenue. She introduced me to two of her employees working in the basement. Sandy’s the first person to be officially told that I’ve applied for early Social Security.
Then I walked back into Bloomfield and picked up a six-pack of Mug Root-Beer, a jar of Vlasic Polish Dill Spears and two packs of Wrigley’s Winter Fresh gum, all of it at Shure Save. I left Shure Save and walked across the parking lot and on across Liberty Avenue and waited for the 54C in front of Del’s Italian Restaurant. Del’s is still advertising karaoke every Friday night. And every sixth Friday night it has a karaoke contest.
Del’s use to be my favorite Friday night hang-out. I miss the Friday night crowd. I miss karaoke; but until I have my feet on more solid financial ground karaoke will have to wait.
