Oh, the Places You See and the People You Meet

Pawling, New York is a quiet, comfortable, and seemingly safe little village..., that just happens to be located about 60 miles north of Manhattan. We have our share of celebrities as locals: Soledad O'Brien, James Earl Jones, Sally Jesse Rafael to name a few. But then there are those just passing through. Yesterday, as I was leaving Dutchess Rehabilitation Center (a nursing home and physical rehab. center) I passed by Richard Simmons in his red, white, and blue, stars and stripes gym shorts and a strappy tank top, frizzy perm and all. He was surrounded by a group of Jewish men wearing yarmulkes. Dutchess Rehab. has a bariatric unit that works with extremely obese men and women. I'm guessing that is why Simmons was there. Thanks God for making life interesting.
