Get some mushrooms. Eat them. Then take a rickshaw ride through Central Park.

Thank me later.

this is cool, z. obviously I can't make any suggestions on what to do there, but maybe if you have the resources you can look up the old neighborhood and see if any of your mom's friends back in the day are still alive/still there and you could arrange a get together.

and regards to your fucking sister. hope she doesn't give you a hard time.

thanks ^

yeah, I've got two of her friends who may join us, they aren't the most mobile, either, so the logistics of this, carting a bunch of old people and little kids around manhattan is going to be interesting.

I would love to take them on a ferry or a cruise, have to see if that would work.

A few months back I took my not-fully mobile mother for a couple of weeks in China. Plenty to do and see. Wonders of the world. Amazing food. Spectacular performances. Have I failed to mention it's not a disabled-friendly place? A much too ambitious schedule that was too taxing, which I fully realized as she was about to be hit with heat stroke. I should have pared down the itinerary, planned for more breaks, longer lunches, etc. Anyway, I adjusted fire and things progressed better. For my mother seeing the Great Wall and the Forbidden City and Guilin and Shanghai was certainly memorable, but really for her spending time with my wife and me was far better. The old appreciate your time. You don't need to have so many plates spinning.

Do the cruise and any other activity that is seated for long stretches.

thanks - yeah, I have taken my mother to Prague and Paris, I know what you mean. this is meant to be a 2-3 hour group activitiy, so it is a little different than that. I have to keep 3 kids under the age of 10 engaged, as well as 7 adults, without us wanting to kill each other. I don't think we will do too much, but I do want there to be some activities, so that it is a memorable day for my mother.

Z, lunch someplace kosher and the buggy ride in Central Park should fill 3 hours. Perhaps you could end the day with ice cream or something special for the kids.
