At 6:00 we slowly moved out, sat for awhile watching the East River, and wonderfully diverse people in the park. Then we drove to Carvel and got sundaes.
Came home and ordered a pizza for dinner. Then discovered that my cable wasn't working, putting a damper on our plans to watch the Macy's fireworks. Called Spectrum and "spoke" to an automaated line that rebooted the cable box remotely. While that was happening the pizza arrived, so we ate and then tried the TV again. NOthing so I called Spectrum back and spoke to a live technician who solved the problem: Somehow the cable box had got set to the wrong setting.
So we watched the fireworks which were pretty good as always, and drank most of a (small) bottle of mead dating from last year's trip to see the Kid. (Who btw, I texted and who texted me back today)
And then we had desert of small personal apple pies, and then it was time for Oldest Brother to go home.
A very pleasant and satisfying day all around.
