    I've been having a pretty rough summer too. My 77 year old grandmother fell and broke her hip. Two weeks later on (July 29th) I found out that my father passed away in his home. He was only 64. :(:( It's been a very rough 2 weeks for me, however, I am trying to keep my chin up and pushing forward, while having to grieve the loss of my father. :(:(

    BlackFireBlackFire So sorry to hear what you are going through :hugs:

    I’m sorry for your loss Shawty. (I feel this would be an appropriate time to call you by your real name...but I don’t know it).

    So sorry to hear this, Shawty. I hope your grandmother recovers quickly and that you and your family are sticking together through your father's loss.

    Miss ShawtyMiss Shawty :hugs::hugs:

    Mom passed away this morning at 12:59. We were all there with her. It seemed peaceful. We hope she felt no pain.

    Now we have to heal our own pain. I slept in this morning and just cuddled with our two labs.

    The subway system is an efficient way to get around. If i has to live in the city I wouldn’t even own a car. Just looking at the constant stop/go traffic and the amount of time waiting for pedestrians to cross the road makes me wanna rage, and I’m one of the pedestrians:lol:

    There’s cool things to do here, but in one weekend we are gonna see them all so hopefully never gotta come back

    You still have that on the subway. lots of stops, lots of folks walking on and off the train :lol:
    But yes, Toronto Subway is pretty darn good. Was in NY a few weeks back and it was brutal. Once you got on it, it was fine, but finding the right entrance to the subway hurt the brain.

    NYC is super efficient for getting around, but you're right, you need to figure out the level and make sure your train is going in the right direction.

    The wife is trying to get me to go to NY now. She’s the traveller, and I’m very much a home body.

    The outrage I experienced just in Toronto....I’d probably stroke out in NY. No thanks!

    I don't really see the attraction. I just picture a bunch of business suits in a hurry everywhere hailing taxi cabs and bright flashy billboards. What does one actually do there? I told her I would consider it if we went to a Rangers game or something

    Lots of food, lots of shows.

    I went and saw Jim Norton at Caroline’s in Times Square. NYC is awesome

    Going to a Rangers game should be enough to get you there. My wife and I did that on a trip there and it was an amazing experience.

    Just watched the trailer for the final season of House of Cards. I was curious to see how they'd deal with Kevin Spacey and his #metoo incident - interesting to see they cleared it up pretty quickly in the trailer with his character's name on a gravestone. Fuck that guy.

    wife shopped way too much for me. I did a lot of standing around, sitting around...and just waiting for her. The city itself, was neat, felt kinda underwhelmed, being so hyped up. Just felt like a larger Toronto to me. We did 3 ball games, jays got swept :lol: and the beer was stupid expensive at Yankee Stadium. But its the experience.

    Man I've never been anywhere really (as an adult) San Fran, Boston, Montreal, Toronto is the only cities I've ever been to.

    I need to take some trips.

    I checked out the Museum of Natural History, Freedom tower and ground Zero, went to 4 comedy shows, Brooklyn Bridge, bunch of great restaurants, central park. There is a ton of history there. I didn't get to see the Statue of Liberty.

    You can fill your time pretty easily.

    You should have done the touristy things. Even walking through Central Park is fun. We did a couple of food tours. The comedy clubs are amazing. We saw The Book of Mormon there. Shopping when visiting a new place should be the last thing on any list.

    Oh we did. Loved Central Park. We did the Rock. The Library. Ferry over to Jersey, ground zero, etc. Just so much to do with only 5 days to do it.

    Should almost go in the stupid thread :lol:

    Walking dog on the beach. We're leaving, and she pulled one way, I turned another, not sure what happened but boom instant pain in my hand/goes numb. Can't make a fist. Xrays show nothing broken. Probably a tendon/ligament issue. Physio.

    [​IMG]

    So a few hours later Im at home, on the deck with the dog, kick a ball for her. catch my toenail on what I assume is a nail head just barely protruding up
