What’s Up in the Neighborhood, January 18 2020

First up, an update on my broken ankle.  I’m still in a splint, and hopefully Tuesday I’ll find out from the orthopedist if I can move from a splint to at least a hard cast – which in that would mean progress. But that’s Tuesday and this is Saturday. And since it’s Saturday, it’s time…

So … I don’t know if this is significant or not, but I’m signifying it anyway. Last year, the wonderful website All Over Albany closed its doors.  Every Wednesday, they had a feature called “What’s Up in the Neighborhood,” where they listed the comings and goings of their bloggers. I liked All Over Albany.  I…
