NYC Tourist Gallery-Dog Lover Sweater, Grand Central I Love NY Tourism Window, Paddington Ad, The Crowd at Rockefeller Center and a Couple More Christmas Windows
One more gallery of New York City. I’ve been home a week.
By looking at the photographs, I’m still enjoying the time I had with my sister.
I was a tourist for sure!

You remember the Father/Son blog followers and dear friends who guest blogged the scenes from Central Park in Fall and Winter?
Here is what dad Jack wrote
“Joey’s office is near Rockefeller Center. He sent these pictures of the Christmas Tree as it arrived. He said that some branches are removed making it bare in spots. They reattach the original branches and add branches from other trees. Who would have known? Not me for sure. I was impressed by the scaffolding and all. It is different so I thought you would enjoy it. I will send the finished product if Joe sends it to me. “
Friday afternoon I drove a colleague to the Strip District to pick up her car. It was raining. She’d gotten new tires.
At the red light, down Herron Hill, I saw a Life Size Chipmunk making her way to the intersection to cross Liberty Avenue. (The same spot I saw the groundhog scurrying under the cars.)
Oh that’s right, it was Halloween.
Office Party? Chip or Dale? Alvin? A leftover from the Furries
Lots of images came to mind.
Here is my gallery of descent.

How I love being the passenger with a camera in hand. My DIL was driving.

Here is the image I would choose to put on the cover of a book. Because it makes me wonder.
The title of the hypothetical book is
From the Passenger Window
I had to look twice at what I was seeing.
The plumes from the Marching Band Bucket Hats, put away until next year.
One of my Photography Two students left me a little surprise on my iPhone (which I’d left unattended on my desk)
Uh-oh. Let that be a reminder to keep my phone away in the future. It’s usually in my top drawer.
Sharing it on the blog because I laughed out loud when I found this photograph in my photostream. It gave me pause.
I’ve a set of Victorian Masks – this one is Horatio Nelson 1st Viscount Nelson. It was on my desk, too.
My guess is
1.she saw the mask,
2. she saw my phone,
3. she felt inspired
4. and created this in a few short seconds.
5. Left it for me to find.
6. Never mentioned it.
(Way to go AZ!)
7. I blogged it!
If you’ve been following me since last October, the photos below may seem familiar.
Last year’s homecoming heels post is here
I couldn’t walk in these fancy shoes, I know that.
Probably couldn’t get them on my feet, like Cinderella’s stepsisters couldn’t get that glass slipper on their foot either.
High heels look fashionable and glamorous,
And, they don’t stay on
very long at all.
Monday morning started out foggy but as the day wore on it burned off.
And darn if I don’t have another Ailanthus tree to cut down and try and get the roots out. These supposed trees called Tree of Heaven are definitely invasive. Ugh.

When I got to the Mellon Park fountain for a photo shoot, I saw a wedding bouquet and an abandoned fan with the names
Rae and Nick 8-2-14
And then right in the middle of the shoot, I met Margaret a 7 month old Giant Schnauzer named Margaret and I gave her owner a postcard with the blog address and said to email me and I’d send the pic. What a distinctive looking dog.
Margaret has a lot of creative energy. You can just tell. She is still a pup but about 70 pounds!!!
Well, Giant Schnauzer. A lucky dog to be a rescue.
Another view of the abandoned bouquet at the fountain.
