Today is a very special day.

68 years ago today, Praise God, Robert Lawery Senior and his wife, Marjorie Morrison Lawery, had a change of life baby girl, at Women’s Hospital in New York City.

That little girl was me, Jo Anna Marie, aka The Sports Diva.

I was the baby as they all ready had Barbara Louise Bernadette and Robert Lawery Junior.

Today, because of that virus that continues to miss the memo to just go away all ready, I spent my birthday not in another state, but a place I don’t go to often, and it’s a bus ride away.

It’s the Green Acres Mall in South Valley Stream, Long Island.

People were shopping and doing things that New Yorkers love to do, eat, drink and be in a hurry to get no place fast.

After doing some shopping and browsing, I went up to the food court, where a lot of the places were open for business.

Because I was on Long Island, the quarantine rules for New York City are different from what’s going on with Nassau and Suffolk County, Long Island.

It was so good to eat the food that New Yorkers grew up on.

No, not pizza, but Chinese food.

This was a special day but being in the food court again was very special.



By the time this post uploads, many of you will have all ready said, good riddance, don’t let the door hit you on the way out, and go away to the year from hell, 2020.

Who knows if 2021 will be any better?

Honestly, it can’t be any worse than 2020,which came in like an angel, but later turned into an asshole douchebag to put it nicely.

Don’t know what the rest of 2021 will bring, but it’s gonna be good in the beginning.

Hockey comes back in 12 days and the Sports Diva is liking 2021 all ready.

God willing, let those 30 Plus Teams Tours of somewhere, ANYWHERE, start again.

Call me crazy, but I miss writing about those ‘what’s in my suitcase’ posts that so many of you seem to like a lot.

For now though, 2021 is a couple of hours away.

Good riddance 2020, NOBODY is going to miss you.
