Efforts to turn the old convent at Second and Liberty Streets into a rabbit warren for 39 roomers was again thwarted last night when the Zoning Board rejected the proposal. Attendees tell me that Kathy MacNett made a dramatic and impassioned objection to the idea on behalf of the CAN neighborhood . . . I guess it had to happen sooner or later: the REALLY BIG movie in Hong Kong and Taiwan these days is a 3-D porno . . . Today's TripAdvisor couple was from Toronto, Canada. Bob also entertained a family from Doylestown in Harrisburg for sightseeing and, hopefully, a baseball game . . . Happy Birthday to Eric W. today; I was going to reveal his age but wife Joanne objected . . . Spent the afternoon in the apartment over the store. It was great to hear the comings and goings; hope I can soon assist at least occasionally. Had a Subway chicken salad for supper. Maybe we are getting back to normal faster than we expected. However--I am a bit exhausted at the moment . . .
