Count down, cast offs, and goodbyes

I’m leaving on a jet plane . . .

My bags are packed and I ready to fly! I’m heading back to beloved Brooklyn Sunday at 10:50 pm. YEAH!! Tonight the company and I will go out for my goodbye drink. Since I’m flying on Sunday night, I figured a Saturday night drink would be better. Since I’m only back in NY for five […]
