On St. Mark’s Place in New York City, you’ll find a great comic book shop. Here’s a look at the front.

I first went into this shop in 1986 when it was located on the upper level. Nonetheless, they still have all your favorite comic books from the major companies as well as the independents, not to mention a large selection of graphic novels, games, and other related material.

Friendly staff will help find what you’re looking for and give you the latest news from the business. Comic art can be fantastic, so take your time browsing. Just another form of story-telling. Enjoy them all.

The Subway Card

New York City’s subway is an expansive network of interconnected trains. You can go a long way for a relatively low fare. And fairly quickly, too.

Using the rechargeable cards saves time and hassle. They’re bought from one of the machines where you can use a credit card (get the frequent flier miles). Then you swipe the card as you go through the turnstile. The display shows how much cash you have remaining on the card, so no surprises when to recharge.

Kitesurfing the Atlantic

While in Margate, NJ, USA, I paused for a look at the beach and ocean. Saw this fellow kitesurfing.

Gave me an opportunity to test out the video feature on my iPhone7. Works fairly well. That water was a bit chilly, but it didn’t seem to cut down on the guy’s fun. Be careful out there.

Cessna 140

A true classic showed up at the local airport. Take a look:

That’s a Cessna 140 from the mid-1940’s if my research is correct.

Those are classic lines for sure. What a bunch of adventure this plane has seen.

And the paint lends itself to adventure as well, bright colors making a bold statement. This aircraft is proof that as long as you take care of them, they’ll last a long time.
