Random Thoughts on a Sunny Sunday

1. I had my usual phone conversation with Roy today at 9 AM. We talked about the Shalimar Diner in Rego Park. I recalled that in 1972 there was a fire on 63rd Drive that destroyed the library and several stores. The library moved across the street while the Shalimar diner was built on the site of the fire. Roy and his parents used to go there regular, but Roy han't been back there since his mother passed away.

2. I read one article from Montague Street: The Art of Bob Dylan , a new magazine edited by Nina Gross. I am going to have to sit down with this and write a review for this journal.

3. We walked around Douglaston and Little Neck early this afternoon.

4. The Mets have not looked good so far as they have lost 4 out of their first 6 games. Pitiching seems OK, but they just can't hit in the clutch. It is still very early, but if the team is not competitive this season, Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel must go.

5. The Rangers lost 2-1 in an overtime shootout to the Philadelphia Flyers and missed out on the playoffs.

6. The Knicks lost their 52nd game of the season. Only two games to go. Donny Walsh had better keep David Lee. If the teams sucks next season that he and Mike D'Antoni must go.

7. I reconnected with Jean O'Conner from P.S. 139. She said she enjoyed reading this blog. I'm glad you enjoy it Jean.

8. Barry Scott featured 1977 on the Lost 45s tonight. That was not a very good year for me, so I turned it off. It is still a very good show and I recommend it highly.

9. Million Dollar Quartet opens tonight after 4 weeks of previews. I will check the reviews and report here.
