Miles Left To Go…

Tonight’s sunset, as seen from the Lavender Lady, seems like it happened days ago now.

1.21 When It Rains….

On the upside finding parking near Mr. Grindle’s event proved rather easy. A poorly lit lot provided by a neighborhood park worked out just fine. Might kill my eyes to plumb the depths of the internet in the low light but I suppose that’s…

1.20 The Game’s Afoot…

Mr. Grindle lived on the opposite edge of the Old Town and his destination (according to my FLYT driver app) just over a mile away. When I pulled up to the curb, I spied a silver-haired man in his fifties. When he turned to…

Diamonds and Pearls…

One of my first FLYT fares – a nice lady of a certain age wearing (you guessed it) diamonds, pearls and the cutest pillbox hat – wanted me to drop her off at this door. Not a clue what lays beyond the threshold, but…

The Most Interesting Thing I’ve Ever Eaten?

The upside for driving with FLYT? I get to see all kinds of new things, like restaurants, I never knew existed in our fair city. For example? Heads & Tails a little sushi place (which qualifies as a hole-in-the-wall-joint because my old kitchen has more…

1.19 My Career as a Chauffeur

(The Princess as she was when I bought her, before spiffing her up!) FLYT: Whether it’s hop, skip or a jump, start your trip with us! My new interim career: chauffeur. Sounds glamorous right?  On my first day I donned black slacks, vest and…

1.18 Sugar & Spice and Nothing Nice

Remember when I I said I forgot to ask Beatrice about something when she toured me through the Lavender Lady? When she lured me into a very reasonable lease? Yeah, I figured it out. The penny dropped when I started searching for the promised…

1.17 Unfortunate Roommates

So while the shadows grew long and the light turned orange, red and gold outside the Lavender Lady, inside her walls finally held all my earthly possessions and most of my closest friends. Filled with satisfaction and surrounded by the physical manifestation of our…

#1 Pizzeria EVER!

The only place for pizza in Rye – in my humble opinion! And what we will be eating when my friends help me move (I will try to restrain myself from archeological endeavors – but Wood does find them hilarious). (photo credit here &…

1.16 Pizza With Indiana Jones

I blame Indiana Jones. A ten year old me wanted nothing more than to roam the earth with Professor Jones (as I called him because I’d be a student, not a love interest) finding idols, grails and such things. So to prepare I did…

1.15 Sweet and Sour

Rolling down the window of sickly pumpkin colored hybrid, “Talking on your phone again?” The opening salvo. Returning fire, I gestured with my phone, “Sure looks that way.” I opened my email, hoping the glowing screen and obvious inattention would spark the idea of…

Drive With FLYT…

The advert which gave me the idea of driving for FLYT! I get to be a professional driver…though I think my skills are more on level with Herbie The Love Bug than Lewis Hamilton (sadly). (You remember Herbie The Love Bug, the 1968 Disney…
