Random NYC seniors answer your finest random questions
The Kentucky Wild Health Genomes????? Is everybody just going to let that slide by?
Your interviews are the best! That rubber plant needs to be repotted, not cut. Got a friend who is retired and has an amazing green thumb. He said, thin dead stalks during the replant (the ones you overwatered :)) and then use a heating pad underneath the plant to spur growth and use some root hormone and maybe get some lower buds. If that doesn't work then whacking it and hoping for lower growth. Like most things in life, I KNOW NOTHING but often we all know someone who knows better. The next time I'm at his house, with permission, I'll post some photos of his beautiful plants. Hard to believe in such a cold climate. He says repot or trim back in the spring if possible and be patient.
My favorite part of the interviews is when the Lutheran minister questions you back on whether your name is Cafe. That is strong.
(defensively) a 62-year-old is a senior?
I really love these random interviews. Everyone has a story (and so few get to share).
"Right now, the website needs work"--Just love it.
The part about you drinking a lot of coffee and thus you are also the Cafe part really made my morning.
I don’t live in New York but these newsletters make me wish I did.
Senior Citizen Roulette never disappoints! There's wisdom, and humor, and humanity in all of these interviews. And we got to meet a real Ramones scenster -- too cool!
I guess if I fess up to seeing the amazing Dion DiMucci play ( who, as iconic Bronx-ite deserves a profile in which NONE of the usual subjects he is questioned about are the only topics-and if anyone could pull that off, you can) in SEVEN different decades that makes me a "Senior"-though except for the discount parts it's not something I necessarily advertise. And I'll ultimately be sending at least $omething to that Remsen address as I'd really been missing the wsj profiles I often applauded you personally for-but heck, as a senior those digital pay platforms make me shudder!
You're one of a kind, Anne-glad I decided to do a search. Fascinating approach regarding Senior Roulette....good for you!
Of course Curtis was the mayor NYC really needed but foolishly declined.
I’ve not heard anyone mention L’Amour in a couple of decades. At least! First place my high school BFF and I ever went to underaged 😂 it was 1992(?) and we got all dolled up and went… probably way too early on a totally dead night. They gladly served us and we sat there wondering where all the fun was…. My stepbrother’s band “Obituary” played there a bit. Yea that was really the name of the band… all to say it’s really scary to see that this place made SENIORS ROULETTE! I’m feeling a little aged right now.
I love this so much and am officially waiting to be discovered for Seniors Roulette!
How many potatoes?
The plant survey is too much responsibility!
Anne, your interviews with the seniors just crack me up. You are unflappable!😅
Please sign me up for the Helen Z. fan club. Tiny potatoes!
I'm also a huge fan of Senior Citizen Roulette. I gasped with excitement when I saw it in my inbox and you know I am being 100% literal.
I'm in Lisbon for the summer and studying Portuguese with gusto so I can understand what the seniors are saying to me (really my dog) every morning when we get coffee. It always starts with confirming that the dog is a girl and saying that she's the best dog on the planet. Then there's several more minutes of mystery.
I feel like both Clint and Dave would vote for decapitating and radically repotting the rubber tree plant....
