There is an awful lot to do. My Mom liked opera, and I saw maybe 6 with her. But usually I went on the train or bus with her and then did something else while she saw the opera.
What interests do you have? There are a lot of museums of course; I've been to the Metropolitan Museum of History and Art twice (several decades apart), and also to the Museum Of Modern Art. But I don't know that much about art and have mostly been to concerts.
Oh yeah... I went to a Mets game once (the year after they won the Worlds' Series back in the 80's)
Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.
