Thanks also for the hundreds of sweet notes on the NYT web site and in the social media in the past 24 hours (my kids keep me posted.)
My ongoing enjoyment of my colleagues and the bond with readers has me glowing since I filed my last regular Sports of the Times column.
In a day or three, as the first entry here, I will file one favorite postcard from 2011.
My plan is to take some good swings in the NYT sports section on occasion, and regularly write about other stuff here – older role models (nonagenarians) who are still working, my love of music and radio and cities and grandkids, and maybe I will write postcards from some exotic new place my wife chooses.
First things first: we’re taking one of the grand-daughters out for Xi’an lamb in Flushing Chinatown.
Talk to you soon.
