Some kinduv "..... Gangplank" or other, wazzint it, if I remember correctly? 'Course, ***I*** would never use such a term for it..... 'Course, I am old enuff to remember taking the ferry from 69th St before the Gangplank was built to get over to Wm. Pouch Scout Camp... I also very much like the restaurant on Canarsie Pier, Abbragiemento's (sp?) that has a location also on Woodhaven Blvd, I believe.

Anyway, Florida this time of year is way better, weather-wise, than any of these places, and we use a 4 letter word down here for that white stuff that I think you would not object to: SAND!!!!

Clem, sand is a very nice word when describing white stuff. You can freely use it anytime you want! Funny about you remembering the ferry. I've got an early radar device my Great Grandfather used, as a Ferry Captain from Brooklyn to SI. The common word for this tool is, binoculars!

My father was a Captain on the S.I. Ferry for about three weeks. It was a civil service job ,as I remember, and scored very high on the test. After bumping the bow and the stern, going back and forth, he gave it up. Much to the chagrin of my mother, who wanted her husband home every night. Back to the tankers he went, and a 3 month cruise.

Another four letter word beginning with "S" for white stuff is "Salt" and it goes very nicely with "Sand."  In fact, when I lived at Breezy Point, it was sand and salt together that kept that other four letter word beginning with "S" to a bare minimum and made it disappear real fast.  Of course, it also made parts of our cars disappear pretty fast too, like the fenders, mufflers, rocker panels....  'Scuse me.... gota go "....searchin' for my lost shaker of salt....'"  it's here, somewhere, likely burried in the sand..... Merry Warm Christmas!!!

Sand?

It puts a new meaning to the term "White Christmas".

 

Just like the ones I've never known!

 

Sorry, I couldn't resist adding that line!
