Floridians in Big Apple

"Certainly, travel is more than seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living."                         ~Miriam Beard  

 

 

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
--Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad (1869)

 

 

AOL's add-an-entry feature does not work well this morning. It will not let me change font color. No time to whine to Joe (AOL Journal Editor and techie god). We are headed to NYC and there is a public transport strike. But NOTHING can dampen my spirits. I am beside myself and looking forward to my first trip to the Big Apple.

I will try to download pics and what nots while I am there.

My mother-in-law's advice: "Make sure the kids have their shoes on.  Don't pack their bib overalls."

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Have a WONDERFUL time!  Garrison Keillor was doing a Christmas show last week-end from NYC and mentioned that he had been there with his little son during the last transit strike and how they had walked and walked and walked to see the city -- wonderful memories!

What fun you will have in the Big Apple!  It's one of my favorite cities in the world; the hustle and bustle, zigging and zagging, ebbing and flowing of the masses all in unison.  Bundle up and take lots of antibacterial hand wash with you.  :)  
No pressure from me, but I would really like pictures.  Lots of them.  Better yet, fill us in along the way with a pictures and entries during your trip.  Too much to ask?  Okay, I'll settle for a post vacation wrap up when you get back.
And for the love of all things fun and exciting, have yourself a Merry Christmas while you make some fabulous memories!
Seasons Greetings,
Judith

FIRST trip?!?! All those years in MA and all that driving around and you've never been there? I'm stunned! LOL  Have a fun time! Hope the traffic isn't too horrible for you. Looks like we are going to skip our skating trip to Rockafeller Center since we can't take the subway. ;-)
