"Just Call Me Mrs. Albany"

by Bruce Helm

"We eat a lot at Jose Muldoon's and hang out downtown, and this woman has been there all summer wearing winter clothes. Anyway, she's just beautiful and full of character. And she was a blast to talk with. So my wife asked, 'Would you mind if we took your picture?' and she said, 'Thanks so much for asking, so many people come and take a picture and do not ask.' So we both snapped pictures, and finally, we asked what her name was. She said, 'Just call me Mrs. Albany,' because she just sits there in front of the Albany Hotel. Ironically, we've not seen her since. We've been carrying around a photo to give her, but we don't know where she is."
