My Lucky Day

This morning, I was browsing my usual haunts and I passed through Dr. John's where I saw his link of the day for New York Nitty-Gritty. Being a New Yorker, born and raised, I am so excited about this site. I look at the photos and it is like looking at the city through my own eyes. Nitty-Gritty notices the same beautiful and quirky things about the city that I would.

In appreciation, I would like to share a photo of the city that I have been saving for a special post. Many thanks to Dr. John and New York Nitty-Gritty.

Today is my lucky day, eh, Dr. John? ;-)

Yahoo! I can yack at ya once more! This is a great picture. Haven't been in NY for a long time but all these pictures today are making me want to plan a vacation!

Whew, thanks for your help, Kat! To think I have a degree in engineering and I haven't a clue about web sites. Then again, my first year in engineering school, we still had slide-rules!

Glad you liked photo. Come on over and visit, I'll show you the sights! NYC is the #1 safest big city in the country.

Hi Sunflower, love the link
crystal clear photos of New York.
Yes even big cities have their sparkle, and cities like the big apple, paris & london have the magic which entwines modern glass skyscrapers with tall buildings from previous centuries.

LOVE THE PICS - makes me miss NYC - but Boston isn't too shabby either! Spent the late morning and most of the afternoon with Alex at the dr - will fill you in, but have to make dinner now.

Thanks Dr. John! I took this one driving home after spending a lovely day in the city. Does your sister need any info about NY for her visit?

Quasar9 - so glad you liked the link as much as I did :-) Even though I live in a suburb now, I'll always be a city girl at heart.

Rev. Kate, we love Boston too - I'm sorry neither of my children chose to go to college there. But you do have crazy, mixed-up streets up there! Prayers for health, hope all turns out well for Alex.

thanks for the shout out!!

Sunflower Optimism said...

Otilius (aka NY Nitty-Gritty), I can't take the credit, Dr. John tipped me off to your fine blog. It did give me a good excuse to post a photo I took leaving the city one day ;-)

I grew up in Washington Heights - do you have any photos from up that way?

Love the photo sunflower and New York too, been there a couple of times but that was about eight years ago.

Sunflower Optimism said...

Well, sounds like it's time for another visit, Sandy. We have changed a lot in the past eight years. Some for the better, some for the worse.

Glad you liked the photo :-)

Great shot, Sunflower! I'll never forget my first sight of New York City, flying in at night and seeing the tall buildings and colorful lights. The bridges looked like jeweled necklaces. It was quite a sight.

Mimi Lenox said...

Hi Sunflower.....This is Mimi Lenox. Did you get your Peace Globe to work? I can't reply to your anonymous comment. If you still need help please email me at http://www.mimiwrites2005 at Yahoo and I'll be glad to walk you through the process. Thank you! I can't wait for Dona Nobis Pacem on Tuesday and read what everyone has posted.

Great pic, Sunflower. I miss the city. Now I just live among 9 gazillion New York transplants down here in Florida!

Sunflower Optimism said...

Yes, Velvet, my heart always goes "thump, thump" when flying into the city - it is so beautiful!

Mimi, thanks for getting back to me - hopefully you got my email -although I had trouble figuring that out, too! I used to be so good with technology - until they went and changed it all on me :-(

Thanks for stopping by Tony - are you originally a New Yorker? Say hi to Aunt Nancy, who's down there, for us!

mysti said...

Beautiful picture! I will have to check out his site. Thank you for visiting mine, and leaving such a thoughtful comment.

Blessings!

Sunflower Optimism said...

Thanks for visiting, Mysti. I hope you are doing better today. I've been reading a little of your blog - I am so sorry for your pain.

I pray for better days for you.
