Observations from the Window 2.17

It finally happened, the temperature topped out at 62 today and broke that magic barrier. Yes there will be an end to this damn winter and hopefully there will be a real spring too. I thought it called for a celebration of sorts. I knew for a fact that Foxy was ready to take to the road after a month locked up in her garage and only running for five or ten minutes every couple days. I myself was ready to put that top down and take her for a drive around the city but I came upon one small problem that stopped me. In my excited state I somehow forgot that I had the hardtop on and I have no place to store it here so I'm stuck top up till I can drive down to my dad's. I still took her for a run up around Central Park just to get her some non-garage air.

Now I have a question; does anybody know how to get motor oil out of leather? See Foxy needed a quart of oil and with the sun getting lower I wasn't about to take the time to run to the apartment for a funnel so I did without. One should always remember not to squeeze the bottle to hard because it tends to make the oil sport out, in this case all over my arm. Maybe I should just keep the funnel in the trunk with my collection of old boots, tools, and the gods know what else I have in there.

One slight highlight of the drive was this. With Fashion Week winding down a chant was heard as I drove past Lincoln Center. "On to Muscat, on to Muskat" the stylish ones were screaming as they left the building. Well don't believe me if you don't want to, but I know what I heard.

If you happen to own a work by Andy Warhol now seems to be the time to sell because the man is hot. Tuesday night his portrait of Marilyn Monroe, “Nine Multicolored Marilyns (Reversal Series),” sold for $5.09 million at Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Sale. That was followed Wednesday by the sale of a 6 foot by 6 foot red silkscreen self portrait for $17.4 million at the same auction. Also Armand Bartos Fine Arts opened the first ever show devoted to Warhol's soup can works. The show runs for thirty days than the gallery will close its doors forever.

Tomorrow is 'full moon Friday' so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all good luck. If my horoscope is any indication of how the day will go I think I'll be spending the day down the bunker.

Now dare I checkout the roof?
