I hope no one got caught up in yesterday’s formatting fiasco. If you got additional emails from this site I do apologize. When I first started out on Blogger it had a lot of problems, which after awhile seemed to get straightened out but they are starting up again. Since I want a permanent record of my posts they are written in MS Word and then pasted into Blogger. Communication doesn’t seem good right now. A new template might help because this one is old.
Today’s flower is a garden classic. It looks like a big pink pillow. I would love to lay my head down on it and wake up in the spring but alas we have to make through the biting winds, frozen landscape and short days before the wonder of spring returns.
I am still recovering a little from our trip to the Rockefeller Christmas tree on Saturday night. Crowds were expected but when leaving we got stuck at 6th Avenue and 50th Street. Literally it was human gridlock. Nobody could move forward or back. Finally the police came and opened up some of the barricades and allowed us to cross 6th Avenue. Luckily I had Erika (our granddaughter) in my arms because she might have disappeared if I didn’t. After crossing the avenue it was still crowded but we were able to make a quick escape to our car. What a night.
