It’s been quite a while since I last posted. Not for lack of activities going on around here as the construction crew is still here alive and well. They told me yesterday that they may be here until Thanksgiving and I promptly fell over in a dead faint. Well, not really but I felt like it. Not that they aren’t a good crew, they are all very polite and helpful and try very hard not to fill the rest of my house full of sheetrock dust but it is almost impossible not to have it flying around. I am very allergic to it so have been spending lots of time outside.
This week we have been away so that was a help. We had to go to NYC on business for a few days and other then the torrential rains it was a lot of fun. At the last minute before we left to head out I grabbed my rain coat. Good thinking on my part for once.
Tuesday night we were supposed to go to a Yankee’s baseball game so headed over with two other couples. The cab driver had to take an alternate route as there was flooding and everyone else did too. The traffic was horrendous! If we have more then three cars go by our house in a day we think there has been a lot of traffic so NY traffic just overwhelms us.
We finally arrived and took a tour of the stadium. It is an amazing place. We were planning to eat some dinner there before the game and I was thinking hotdogs, hamburgers, fries and Cokes but there was not a hamburger in sight. We started out with sushi (bleck!), crab legs (YUM), duck, tenderloin, fish and lots of other appetizers that the wait staff just kept bringing!
Then on to the buffet which had delicious foods of all kinds. I ate too much as did everyone else but the game was delayed so there was nothing else to do. :o) It was just raining cats and dogs!!!
Finally about 9:30 we called it a night and headed back to the hotel never dreaming that they would have the game. They did. At eleven o’clock PM they started the game and it went until 2:30 AM!!! We were fast asleep and thankful for it. It was worth going just to have the nice meal and to see the stadium.
The next day we went to see Sister Act on Broadway in between meetings. It was very well done, the costumes were wonderful and the language was fine unlike our experience with another show…….. The singing was amazing, such talent there, and to think there are shows going on all over the place with different people with the same amazing talent. Some of the others went to see Memphis and said that was good as well.
I didn’t take many pictures, just a couple from our room on the 12th floor and you can see how dreary it was there with all the rain.
I can’t imagine being surrounded by big buildings all the time. The first thing I did after getting home this morning when I finished unpacking was to take Scooter and go for a nice trail ride. It was beautiful, the air was fresh, everything green from the rain, just a lovely ride. I guess I will never be a city girl. :o)
