Call me on my cell. two-zero-one two-eight-six three-seven-eight-seven. If I don't answer (I may be driving, and a cell phone while driving is a heavy fine and many points in Jersey) leave a voicemail. I'll call back soonest.
I'm headed over to Brooklyn for the first time in several years either today or tomorrow to visit my brother (or as close to one as I'll ever have -- my first wife's husband) at MyMoe hospital (we've been estranged for a while since an argument between him and La Esposa). Side trips can be made over La Esposa's protestations. (Mostly over me bringing any more of "that useless old computer crap" into the basement, but that's an old fight and I have plenty of countermeasures acquired lately that I haven't used yet).
