Greenpoint Photos Du Jour & A Reminder…

Lately I have been so busy with personal matters the fact that it is October now almost slipped by. Time also flies when one is not having fun. There is of course my recent interaction with the local constabulary over “graffiti”.* This has taken a lot of my time and energy. Thankfully that matter seems to be tabled for the time being. Regardless, the shit keeps on coming. To name a couple:

  • someone trying to charge $3.44 (!) on my credit card (this has been resolved, still I am left wondering exactly what such a sum can actually buy nowadays)
  • our oldest cat, Bodhi (AKA: “Booger”) requiring medical attention for an ear puffed up like a sopapilla. We had it treated once. His blood work, etc., is fine. He’s a tough old goat of a Greenpoint tabby. Still, it came back and tonight he had to go back in for another treatment. It went well. Paws crossed, this time it will “stick”.

Both of us being exhausted, I opted to take a car home. During that ride home I saw something interesting. Sort of a punctuation mark on the shit show which has been the last six weeks, give or take, for yours truly. This:

The author of this missive clearly has a grievance with the 94th Precinct. This is rather uncanny because tomorrow is the monthly Community Council meeting for same-said. And you all have my cat “Booger”— specifically his ear— to thank for all of this.

P.S.: If anyone is wondering where this sullen, spray-painted utterance of revolt is located, here you go.

Could be an interesting topic to bring up tomorrow.

Or not.

*This evening I organized my papers regarding my 94th Precinct Experience. I found this piece of paper, provided by the Lieutenant who detained me, to my spouse so he could write down their names/badge numbers (on the back). Here’s the front:

Tonight we both learned what “cooping” is. You can too courtesy of the New York Times. The more you know!

Here’s the flyer for St. John’s Annual Bazaar Nov. 13th.  The fun stuff is really cool!

The Ham dinner is OUTSTANDING.  The Gerke family who makes this are multigenerational St. John’s members and many years ago ran a pub (like Teddy’s) over here.  This was one of their specialties.

Hi Heather –

I noticed you’ve put a stoop sale event up!  Well, here’s another that I’ve seen a few flyers for [and yes for this one I am a bit biased in favor of 🙂 ]

Thrift Sale
September 26th 10am – 2pm
St. John’s Evangelical. Lutheran Church
155 Milton St.

A lot of things you’d never find anyplace else and for a nice price, stop by and say hi and bring a friend or two or three.

Right around the corner from the Kent St. Festival.

So there have you. If there isn’t enough stuff going on in Greenpoint this weekend to tickle your fancy I suppose there’s always Williamsburg.
