New York Was Great!

New York was great! I hardly slept at all while there. The weekend was just a weekend we could get the time off & get a great deal on bus tour. We went to Madame Tussauds on the first night. The second day we went to Ground Zero, The Little Chaple That Stood, a bus tour around the city, saw the Statue of Liberity. (All that was before lunch) We walked all over the place, a street fair was going on-so we walked down one side & back up the other. Then we were off to Central Park Zoo. We saw Valerie Harper (Rhoda from the Mary Tyler Moore Shoe) Did I just date myself.

Micheal Phelps was in town that day for Saturday Night Live; so I stayed up later to watch that...
Equus was great! Richard Griffith & Daniel Radcliffe were wonderful. It was so wonderfully done-it didn't seem like a 3 hour show. Of course after the show, it was crazy with people trying to see Daniel Radcliffe after the show. Crowds of teenagers (and adults) on both sides of the street. Several officers trying to keep the road clear of pedestrians so cars could get by. On the way back to the hotel, we saw a few actors from Spamalot by the stage door.

All in all a great weekend. Oh and the weather was great-high 70's & into the 80's.

Getting Ready for New York

My trip for New York is getting closer & closer. My girlfriend & I can hardly stand it! Well I got out my camera today to make sure the battery is charged. Well I am still learning to use all the functions & buttons on this things. So I wanted to practice using some feature that will take "fast photos" so I don't miss anything while we are there. So reading the manual again, I think I found something that I can work. Well, here is our dog in an "action" shot. She has one of the biggest tongues.
