According to the weather forecast it seems as if we're coming up for a hot clear night, perfect for a deck or sitting around a table at a little Brooklyn cafe and then visiting plants. We may even fit in TWO decks tonight, depending on how things go.
If you were on the fence about coming, what on earth is holding you back? Get yourself on an F train and head to Bergen Street stop. This will literally take about 10 minutes longer than it would to reach my place on East 5th St. in Manhattan, and if you're not from Brooklyn and haven't visited lately, you'll find the whole revitalized Smith Street area to be a stimulating experience.
Store up any problems and someone will have helpful input. You can even talk about your love life or job (or the lack of either), after we get through bugs, tomatoes, perennials, squirrels, crazy storms and the like.
I'll wear my white baseball hat that says Callaway on it, though I don't golf, and you'll find me from 6:30 pm at Cafe Tabac. Ultimately, I'll end up going to Jim's deck., but for the first hour, we'll be at Cafe Tabac. Keep my cell number handy and if you're running late, come anyway. Call me. I will answer. I doubt that you'll have lifelong regrets about making this meeting.
We will also discuss our next meetup, which will occur late Aug. We will probably set that up on another weeknight in case Monday is a problem night for a few of you.
Hope to see you tonight.
