Saturday is the day you will find Paul and me in Central Park. We get up early and run (I walk) in the park and then come home and shower clean up for the day. Once the newspapers have arrived, we pack up our bag with newspapers and books and head back to the park to read. At least that is our intent. Mostly we watch the other people in the park. It is quite amusing to see parents walking briskly through the park while reading from their travel book and then to see the children about ten paces behind looking like they would rather be back at the hotel playing video games. Musicians are out trying to earn a few dollars playing for the tourists, squirrels are posing for photos, and Paul and I observe all of this while pretending to be totally absorbed in our books. It is a great way to spend a Saturday morning.
