Arrived JFK Airport around 7:30 AM, got our rental car and drove to Julie and Jeff Woosnam's house in Warrington, PA, Cousin June's daughter and our hosts for the weekend and "Cousin June's B-Day Bash." Jeff is a "boy with his toys" and has a wonderful garage to house them! Since weather was possibly iffy for the party Friday evening we made his garage into a fabulous bar and party room! Keep in mind we were a surprise for June's B-Day along with our niece Dr. Ana who flew in from MN. Julie and Jeff took us to a delightful dinner in historic Doylestown, PA, the evening prior to the big event!
A 70th B-DAY BASH to remember! We made our surprise entrance with our top hats, bow ties, canes, all singing "Well Hello, Junie, Well Hello, Junie, it's so nice we're here to celebrate your day! etc." Bette Midler eat your heart out! LOL! So many family members and great friends wishing June a "Fabulous 70th" which only June can do with such great style and panache! Happy B-Day, Girl!
And then it did "Rain on June's Parade" but just for a passing moment!
Saturday morning was a little recovery time and cleanup from the Bash. Dr. Ana, Julie and ourselves spent some quality time with June & Scotty at their Washington Crossing, PA, home. We munched on leftover party food and played with Scotty's trains and remote control models in the basement as we trash talked about the previous evenings events!
Sunday morning we crossed the Delaware to Trenton, NJ, to catch the train to the Big Apple. We met up with Ron's Cousins Kris and Larry at Penn Station and walked 10 blocks (Pride was in the air!) to 44 & X where we then met up with Chervil and Brian (in for NYC Pride) for brunch. What would a NYC brunch be without a Lox and Bagel plate? Great fun catching up with family. On this beautiful, pleasantly warm, sunny Sunday the Big Apple felt very special and alive!
We walked the streets of the Big Apple with the brunch gang to the 42nd Street Theater District where we sadly parted ways after a wonderful time full of catching up and laughs. On to the Schubert Theater for Bette Midler and HELLO, DOLLY! What a show, Bette was Bette and brought a special vibe to Dolly Levi. The costumes, staging, dancing and of course the music was just amazing! This show never gets old and the 71 yr old "Devine Miss M" still has it for sure!
There was no mistaken it was Gay Pride in the Big Apple! Though we missed the Pride Parade while watching the Sunday Matinee of Hello, Dolly!, afterwards we walked around the Times Square area where "Love was in the Air!" as Pride revelers moved north uptown from the Village.
All we can say is there is no other City like NYC! We LOVE NYC and were full of Gay Pride!
