and conveniently, the NYC marathon was scheduled to start this morning. Barry and I cheered on participants in Long Island City, Queens for a couple of hours, catching a glimpse of Lance Armstrong as well as thousands of other awe-inspiring men and women. We then had a lovely brunch at one of my favorite local spots, Tournesol, and headed into Manhattan to pick up a few jewelry supplies and to window shop. We returned to L.I.C. where we had parked our car earlier - oh, have I failed to mention that the "buyer" for our car stood us up not once, not twice, but three times? - and had another fabulous meal at Tuk Tuk, a great Thai restaurant.
A perfect Sunday. And I must admit, I'm actually happy that the car deal fell through. I'm too attached to it to sell it right now. Have a great week, all, and congratulations to the NYC marathon runners!
