Re: A little bit of Da Stoop nostalgia -
Harriet had relatives living just about around the corner. When she'd come in to visit, we'd manage to grab a bite in a local diner until she "disappeared". Ellen Grove was a trip. She and I were both active in the Red Hat Society so I'd get to see her fairly often at the LI events where various groups would all be together. The last I saw her before she moved was a funeral visit for one of her relatives. If she was funny here, she was more so in person. Anita and her husband, Fergus were the hosts for two get-togethers of da Stoop people in NY when Roz and another stoop guy came to town. They were fabulous. Got to meet Carol when she visited some years back. One person who used a pseudonym name here that I can't recall at this point but lived in the Villages (in case someone can refresh my memory) rang a bell describing some of his youthful tales of Brooklyn..Turns out he was the baby brother of one of the best friends of my youth. I visited Roz and Mickey on my first trip to FL. Mickey took me on an all day tour I'll never forget. I got to visit him in the nursing home he was in on another trip. I knew he'd probably never get out but not as far as he was concerned. Of all of the people I got to know or meet through the Board, all were top notch except one. She fooled me in person (as well as others) turning out to be one of the biggest phonies I've ever met.
