Day 269 - Lisa

Central Park on a rainy day.

Day 269 - Sis

We finally caved and hired a taxi after the Letterman show. With the ride we, of course, engaged in conversation with the driver. Besides hearing his story of why he drives we were informed that a great percentage of NYC drivers of cabs don't know what they are doing or where they are going. All I know is there are a ton of cabs and they seem to run in packs.

Day 268 - Lisa

Got tickets to the taping of the David Letterman Show.  And we met Rupert!

Day 268 -Sis

Started the day with no expectations except to buy souvenirs from the Hello Deli and tour the Top of the Rock,(Rockefeller Bldg.). Fortunately by chance scored tickets to the David Letterman Show and quite a list of instructions from his staff; they were funny and very cordial though.

Day 265 - Lisa

Amazing church! Huge! Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC.

Day 265 - Sis

On the bus and night skyline cruise. Bus tour guide was a bit full of herself, night cruise guy was just as bad. Neither were as witty as they thought. Between these two events we walked through Times Square.

Day 263 - Lisa

No sunii on her post tonight.  She's at the Kitty Kondo Kennel.  ;<  I always feel SO bad.  Home feels weird without her.  Ugh - good thing I didn't have kids. 

Day 263 - Sis

Guess it came to wish me a great trip. To it I returned the sentiment for a final trip. Heh,heh,heh! Oh this time I used bug spray not Resolve, although Resolve did live up to it's name.

Day 262 - Sis

I haven't eaten white bread in quite some time but we had take out ribs dinner last night and they serve the white bread with it. I found another use for it, breakfast of pb&j sandwich with coffee. Taste was great but had to hold my breath each time I raised it to my mouth. It seems that white bread absorbs the smell of barbecued ribs and my brain became very confused with the taste of one thing and the odor of another.

Day 262 - Lisa

I love a challenge - I'm coming for you Rupert!

Day 261 - Sis

This is the tv channel listings from the Sunday paper. I think it's also the eye test for Air Force pilot school! Magnifing glass is a must.

Day 261 - Lisa

Helpful Tip - when your eyes look like this; you need a vacation!

Day 260 - Sis

Lisa brought home this slim wallet for me for the trip to NYC. Very nice, it doesn't bulk up the purse I hate to carry. I appreciate it, honest, but isn't it traditional when you give a purse or wallet to stuff it to bulkiness with those green bills?!

Day 260 - Lisa

Thanks Dave for the source.  Cannot wait to test drive these puppies on our homemade Chicago style Italian Beefs!   Makes me drool thinking about them.

Day 259 - Lisa

LOL!  My mom found this for my iDaughter, her and I.  We should wear them proudly.

Day 259 - Sis

Always nice to see favorite things from home. So many games at the Stick over the years. Good game but may have needed more Gore!

Day 258 - Sis

Time to do maintenance on the vacuum cleaner. Should make a big difference tomorrow if I get it back together correctly. One positive, no leftovers screws!

Day 258 - Lisa

Relived 2009 today.  Ugh!  Two years of living on the road took it's toll; I had to file a tax extension.  Approaching my deadline so I had to stop and get about 400 receipts all in order.  Thank God for Excel.

Day 257 - Lisa

Had to hit up the Target .99cent travel bins today.  And I found the "perfect" purse.  Pockets on the outside for my phone and camera with a long enough strap to go over the body.  As I hate wearing a purse on my shoulder. I can't believe I just posted about girlie girl shopping.  ;>

Day 257 - Sis

Yep, Lisa's truck and me need facelifts!

Day 255 - Sis

Pretty embroidery thread colors. Which one did I use to tie the stuffed pork loin roast? Kind of thin though so had to be very careful while eating it and not swallow the thread. Have to remember to buy the correct string for next one.
