There's no place like home...

Oh what a week it was! New York. The Big Apple. The City that Never Sleeps. It was great, but it is good to be home now as well. First off...

The past few days we have been in constant contact with our children here at home, keeping up with the raging fires here in southern California. I must tell you the hospitality in NYC with concern for all of us from California was touching. The news there kept us well informed. Fortunately none in our group of 6 are in directly effected cities but rather we live in the middle of the affected areas. As we flew in late last night, we flew over 3 of the fires; the San Diego fires, the Lake Arrowhead fire, and the fire in Irvine. That is a sight I won't soon forget. My thoughts and prayers go out to our fire fights as well as the effected families with homes in danger.

I will leave you with my favorite photo's from Tinsel Trading Company. The nicest woman met me at the door and showed me around giving me the grand tour, her name is Marcia. It wasn't until the plane ride home, while reading the book I picked up at the store, that I learned Marcia is the shoppe owner. Oy! I'm such a dork. Here is her heavenly store, truly my favorite shoppe in the city...








Sorry for the blurry photo's! I was trembling with excitement just to be there!
I didn't allow for nearly enough time there, as Marcia said when I came in... "I hope you have 4 for 5 hours to spend". I could have stayed there 4 or 5 days and have already decided should my 20 plus year marriage suddenly fail I will be knocking on Marcia's door again, this time asking for a job!!!!
