New York Stories....

#1 - Central Park....

Strawberry Fields, Central Park, NYC - 18th April 2006:

Roberta: " where have you dragged me halfway across the city to this time Bob?"

Me: "This is Strawberry Fields 'Berta.

Roberta: "....and....?"

Me: "Well, this is the garden and memorial to ex-Beatle John Lennon. They have a special garden here with plants and flowers from a hundred and fifty different countries. People come from all over the world to see this place - look at them all paying homage there by the inlaid mosaic with the simple, one word inscription in the centre - 'Imagine...'

Roberta: " why is the memorial here and not in Liverpool where he was born?"

Me: "Because he was assassinated in New York City, sis."

Roberta: "But where exactly was it he got shot?"

Me: "Well sis, I believe it was in the chest..."

Roberta: "..."

Apologies to the endlessly gifted Brian Damage...

More when I get over the jetlag.

Love on y'all,
