A Trip To The Big Apple (Written by my good friend, Biddy Smooth, who had a ball in NYC.) On the weekend of April 17 Patsy White, Linda Grant, Evelyn Grant and Biddy Smoot were in- vited by Mark and Carolyn Grant Lane to attend "The Lion King" at the New Amsterdam Theatre in New York City. Others attending were Mark's mother, Irene Noyes of Naples, Fla and his sister and niece, Kathy and Diana Lane of Roanoke, Vs. While in New York they stayed at the Plaza Hotel on 5th Avenue and were squired about town on Saturday night by limousine. On Friday night, Carolyn and Mark's friend, Elliot Hindman, hosted an outstanding dinner at Benito's II in Little Italy. The res- taurant was very small and not on the tourist trail, the owners from Naples, Italy. Of the many dishes served, not one was tomato sauce based. Elliot provided constant explanations of the savory food as well as being a conversationalist who might challenge Samuel Johnson. On Saturday they visited and lunched at the Metropolitan Mu- seum of Art. Saturday evening, before the show, they dined at Victor's Cafe in the Theatre Dis- trict. The cuisine was Cuban and one of the menu choices several tried was "Ropa Vieja", which in English translated as "old clothes." Very tasty strips of sir- loin rested in a basket of fried plantains and were complimented by rice and black beans, this served with just the perfect wine. To top everything off, "The Lion King" was beautifully, cleverly and miraculously staged. How people became giraffes really amazed everyone. There was a teh minute standing ovation at the opening scene on numerous performances. After breakfast at the Plaza on Sunday, Mark and Carolyn led Patsy, Linda, Evelyn and Biddy to Penn Station to catch the Amtrak to Wilmington, Del. (Carolyn is a nursing anesthesiologist at a hos- pital there), where they regath- ered and drove back to Jefferson County. Carolyn and Mark, espe- cially, deserve a medal for maneu- vering all those women from place to place. Hope they got rested! The School of Life What I've learned: Age 6: I've learned that I like my teacher be- cause she cries when we sing "Si- lent Night". Age 7: I've learned that you can't hide a piece of broc- coli in a glass of milk. Age 9: I've learned that when I wave to people in the country they stop what they are doing and wave back. Age 13: I've learned that just when I get my room the way I like it, Mom makes me clean it up. Age 14: I've learned that if you want to cheer yourself up, you should try cheering someone else up.
