Live on 125th Street

On 125th St there is a fellow crafter whose name is also Brandy.Our last names are practically the same. Mine has an "er" at the end.

Brandy makes some really cool hats and scarves. Take a look. At the moment she does not have a blog or online store. So you must come to NYC to get one. I forgot to mention how reasonably priced they are. I paid $4o for the set I bought last year and it's wool.

I think I'm going to get a brightly colored one this year.

This is the hat & scarf set I bought last year.

Election 2008

So, I voted this morning.

I wasn't sure if I was going to post about it today. But, feel that I must. The first time I voted was for Bill Clinton. It was exciting for me. At that time I was part of a population that did not vote in large numbers. The youth.

Well today everyone was out. Old, young, educated, street educated. There was 1 woman who had had her get right before she came out to vote. Home Girl sang Rehab by Amy Winehouse.

I knew there would be a possibility for a Black President but, I thought I would be an old woman. Well I'm not and the possibility is there. Tomorrow I will know if Obama is our President.
