Posted on Monday, September 24, 2012 by LaurenJoan

Alice (right) and Joanie B. (left) - Milpitas Library Chick-brari-ens.Back home to Milpitas, back to work - Joanie B. and Alice spent a busy day at the Milpitas Library - storytime in the morning, reference desk all afternoon...its all good, but still...

Alice: I'm sure missing New York...the excitement of sighting chickens and other celebrities at any time in the city, the pizza, the cupcakes..the sounds of sirens--day and night...

Joanie B: I wish I could be going downtown..to The Village...East Village...West Village..wraawwk - even the Lower East Side....downtown like Petula Clark crows...

Alice: I remember the cool places we'd meet up with our kind - chickens in SoHo - across from 72 Spring Street (big coop of Marc Jacobs) - at Pylones..."Founded in France in 1985, Pylones (pronounced pea-lone), delights consumers everywhere with thoughtful designs and innovative twists on everyday objects."
