Scene: The L-train platform, Union Square Station, New York City.

AJ: Mom, is it legal for women not to wear any shirts in New York?

Harriet: (thinking of the last time she was here when she saw a topless woman walking down the street in front of her Midtown office at lunchtime on a weekday) Yes, I actually think it is. Why?

AJ: Because I just saw one.

At least our trip to New York was educational.

The Spy family is looking for new digs. It has been a miserable, stressful trip out of which we hope to gain some resolution to the limbo we’ve been living in for the last year+. No words to say yet, but wish us luck. So many ducks are still out of sync, but they are all approaching the line.

    Have you thought about Fort Greene? Good luck with the search! Very stressful but you will find your perfect pad.

    It’s on the list, but a little farther from schools than is idea. We put in an application today and are crossing all available appendages for a positive resolution.

    In Cruel Shoes, There’s a piece entitled “What to say when the ducks show up.” Mostly it’s “oh ducks, wonderful ducks!” Just so you know.

    Ha! Everything crossed here, too. I’m admiring your moxie. I think what just might happen when you ask for what you want is that you get it! Hope so, anyway —
