I’m on the Amtrak on my way up to Northampton MA and missing my emotional support kitties already. But I know their auntie Veri will take good care of them. It’s a lot more crowded on the train than I expected. I thought Kathleen and I managed to evade Michael but he found us. He can’t change seats yet and even more of a bonus that we’re on the quiet car.

While getting ready to buy a sandwich and drink at Pret a Manger in Penn Station NYC to take on the train for lunch, a homeless guy asked if we could get him some food. He wasn’t just asking for cash and he looked legit hungry so I had him come in to the store and he picked out some oatmeal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a couple of drinks. I didn’t mind. He told me he was a vet and they messed up his paperwork so he wouldn’t get money for a while and appreciated the food. He asked for a coffee after the person rang us up and they told him to just go get a small cup and they wouldn’t charge me again. Was about $20 that I’m glad helped brighten someone’s day.

It’s cold in here and I need to move a little so I think I’ll get up and grab my coat from the rack above us. Hope everyone is having a good Sunday!

Oh and Ms Veri is naughty and when I said that I wanted to go to the Star Wars A New Hope orchestra concert (I saw an ad at the transit station), she got us tickets!

On the news last night, they reported that some woman attempted to bring her "emotional support squirrel" on an airplane flight - I feel like kitties would be FAR LESS of a reach :D

That was kind of you to buy the guy some food - I generally feel better about buying someone a meal vs just handing over cash.

I'm glad you helped out the guy. These are treacherous times for so many people. Charity, it's a good thing.
