AlaMich I love the title of this book! I grew up in Marin, and my dad, a Chicago transplant, loved Herb Caen. Maybe I should get the book for him. (edited) 11mo
Leftcoastzen @AlaMich yay Marin ! Lived in Larkspur before I left .Caen has another one 11mo
Leftcoastzen @merelybookish come to Phoenix in the winter and SF in May or September. 11mo
AlaMich @Leftcoastzen I was just looking them up on Amazon. They‘re a little pricey, but I might see if I can find some used copies online. 11mo

“We all know that something is eternal. And it ain‘t houses and it ain‘t names, and it ain‘t earth, and it ain‘t even the stars...everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings...There‘s something way down deep that‘s eternal about every human being.”

Cinfhen On my wish list!! I‘d love to visit New Orleans 11mo
LittleBug I brought one souvenir back from New Orleans when we visited a few years ago: a cook book😊 For me, the food was one of the most fascinating things about the city☺️ 11mo

#lovethistown #timbittunes

G‘s kindergarten class went on a field trip this afternoon to our local bookstore. The kids are turning their classroom into a bookshop next week, with books they created themselves, and parents will be given fake money to buy their child‘s books. So today was all about learning the ins and outs of running a book store. And at the end they got to vote for a book to be donated to their class library! The tagged book won.

JoScho How cute! 11mo
mrp27 What a great idea! 11mo

NAM99 I loved this book as a kid! 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen how did I not know that? Does he ever go back? 11mo
Cinfhen Not really, his mom passed away 7 years ago and his dad sold the house and moved to Boca, Florida. We have friends & some family on LI but we don‘t visit Far Rockaway anymore. What part of Queens did u grow up? 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen Ozone Park. I used to Run to the bridge right before the Rockaways, through Howard Beach. My house was about 15 minutes from JFK. 11mo
mrp27 Great books! I'm with @Cinfhen, I ❤️ NY and books that feature NY are my jam. I used to live in NY, my ex is from Canarsie. 11mo
Cinfhen I‘ve heard of Howard Beach!!! And I know so many people who were from Canarsie @mrp27 A lot of our friends went to Jewish HS in Flatbush 11mo
mrp27 @Cinfhen always amazes me at how small the world is! 11mo
Cinfhen So true @mrp27 11mo
Chrissyreadit @mrp27 where did you live? 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen Flushing, near Queens College has the most amazing Kosher restaurants and knishes- another of the few things I miss from being vegan. Blueberry cheese knishes. NYC has the best food ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 11mo
Cinfhen Ha! My first 3 years of marriage I lived in Kew Garden Hills (Flushing) while my husband attended Hofstra Law School ♥️I had blueberry cheese blintzes (like a crepe) but the only knishes I ever tasted were potato or kasha (buckwheat) and they were all DELICIOUS 😋 Now I cant eat dairy so it‘s been ages since I‘ve had blintzes!!!! What do you eat for breakfast if your vegan??? No eggs, right?!?!!? 11mo
mrp27 I lived in Garden City Long Island. Ex's family all in Brooklyn, Canarsie and Sunset Park. After my divorce I came back to California where I'm originally from. I agree, NYC has the best food. I miss it so much. 11mo
Chrissyreadit @mrp27 @Cinfhen I think you guys were both close to Union Tpke- different sections- but some Yummy food! I spent a lot of time hanging out in Forest Hills. 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen I do not eat a lot of traditional breakfast food. I do enjoy soup for breakfast, or leftovers, chia waffles, yesterday I had left over lentils, spinach and potatoes and chick peas. 11mo
Cinfhen Im trying to get back to Whole30 but I‘m sick of eating eggs everyday - ugh, I hate digestive issues 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen that might have some alternatives? 11mo
Cinfhen Ohhh!! Thanks 🥰😘 11mo
