Turn now to the younger dreams of pirate kings and buried treasure

We worried about getting up on time for bunny_hugger's interview, particularly since given the chance I'll sleep until dusk, and she had left her cell phone (which serves as her travel alarm) in the car. And when she phoned the desk to place a wake-up call nobody answered. Apparently they were asleep.

Back in Manhattan, I got out of the train station and up to the subway platform on the dot to ride up to the Port Authority, and then got through buying my bus ticket in time to join the line as it boarded my bus. I could not have timed the transfers better, and arrived at the stop outside Jersey Mike's to be picked up by my mother and ride back home, ready to hear how bunny_hugger's return home went.

And that was my happy weekend.

Trivia: The stock certificates for the Penn Central railroad were engraved in July 1966 and kept in the vault of West Philadelphia's Security-Columbian Banknote Company until the Pennsylvania Rail Road and the New York Central merged on 1 February 1968.
