Tuesday July 12-
This morning Nelsa, Doris' sister (these are friends in the neighborhood) gave me a ride over to the Walmart at 88th Street in Jersey City. I always went to the one in South Kearny, NJ. I didn't know about this one. This one was in a shopping center with a Petsmart and a Target and a few other large stores. This one was HUGE!!!! It was just as big as a Wegman's with a large produce department, a large arts and crafts department and large sections of stuff all over the store... Oh, and a large frozen foods section with packages of PF Changs frozen food that I haven't seen in stores since mom took me to a Target in Balto months and months ago. (I love PF Changs Chinese food) So- I got my two boxes of Scoop Away® cat litter and a large bag of Cat Chow®, a few cans of Friskies®, A few frozen food things, delicious Peperoni and Cheese Rolls & Garlic Parmesea French Bread. Ooooh, is that good!!!
I found it, I found it, I found it!!!!!
I've been looking for this for a long time ever since I met Richard Skipper in the mid eighties. I drew this back in 1973 when I was in art school for illustration. I was at lunch with a friend from class and I was talking about Carol Channing. This person didn't know who I was talking about. I said she was famous for the Broadway musical "Hello, Dolly!" and he still didn't know her, so I drew this for him and then he knew exactly who I was talking about. Pictured is a scan of the original napkin drawing.

This is the start of what I hope to be a weekly blog. Since this is the first entry, it covers July 1st through the ninth. That's a week and a few days. But after this, I will make it a point to enter the happenings of every day from the week past.
Tuesday July 5-, I took the car license plates to the DMV to return them but the line was so long coming out the door that I decided to go away and come back another day.
Wednesday July 6- I recieved the papers from Esurance Insurance Company with the figures on what they will offer me to settle this whole car matter. I weighed it against what my own insurance company (AAA) offered me already 2 weeks ago. Oh, what to do?
Thursday July 7- I was on the phone back and forth with agents from AAA trying to find out once and for all how my stupid $2000. deductible would play into this and whether or not I would get any of it back. After Ms. Rizzi-the woman who wrote up my policy told me that the extra amount not recovered from Esurance can be covered by the underinsured/uninsured section of my policy I thought I would just simply go with them. Because then AAA would act on my behalf with anything that had to be done in recovering the money from the other company. Someone later that day from AAA told me no, that's not for collision, it's for Medical. I argued with them saying this was not medical. Why would Ms Rizzi even mention it to me if it were medical coverage when she knew the specifics of this accident and knew nobody was injured in it. Medical coverage had nothing to do with it. This person will check with Ms. Rizzi to see what she told me and call me tomorrow morning.
Friday July 8- I got the call from David Maturi of AAA claims and he told me, YES, that underinsured/uninsured part of my policy can be implimented in this case and I would then get back all but the $500. deductible that this part of the policy has. That total would be $57.85 less than the total figure offered to me by Esurance. I just may go with them. I left home for lunch with the folder in hand to get the Property Damage Release form from Esurance Insurance Company signed and notorized to be paid for damages from them rather than go thru my own insurance company where any deductibles play into the final amount. And of course I want to get as much out of this as possible. And it's $57.85 more than if I went with AAA. Got home, prepared and copied the documents and folded them into the envelope for mailing directly at the post office tomorrow morning on my way in to NYC for Broadway Barks and a gathering for someone's birthday at Richards later in the evening.
Saturday July 9- It was Broadway Barks day in Shubert Alley. I went for just a little bit between 3pm and 5 pm. Then I left to get on the train to go uptown and meet with Pat & Joe for a ride to Richards for a birthday party.

As part of the deal, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” -- which are due to wrap in September and January, respectively -- will pick up where they left off on a new, still untitled online TV network once they've ended their run on ABC. The show's cast and crew will make the transition as well.
The soaps are expected to be the first of a number of brand-name TV shows to eventually land at the site.
Prospect Park is lead by ‘Royal Pains’ executive producers Jeff Kwatinetz and executives Rich Frank, who is also a former Disney Studios executive.
An email to ABC seeking confirmation was not immediately returned.
[Updated at 10:55 a.m.: ABC sent out an official release confirming the "exclusive multi-year, multi-platform" deal.
The programs are said to continue in the same format and length. Additional details of the new productions will come from Prospect Park.
“We are privileged to continue the legacy of two of the greatest programs to air on daytime television, and are committed to delivering the storylines, characters and quality that audiences have come to love for over 40 years," Frank and Kwatinetz said in a statement.
"‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ are television icons, and we are looking forward to providing anytime, anywhere viewing to their loyal community of millions. ... We believe that by continuing to produce the shows in their current hour format and with the same quality, viewers will follow the show to our new, online network.” ]
