    The whole things was beyond horrendous, and it is disheartening to think how it continues to impact people today. Sorry about your brother.

    On a lighter note @JenniferS , that ravioli looked amazing and has inspired a future meal in our household!

    Mike got a plain Judge shirt, because this one wasn't available in XXL. :(

    Saw this. And then 10 minutes later, actually came upon it.

    This is where Mike hung out while @NYwdwfan and I went up the ESB.

    Saw these guys. I figure it's a pretty good motto by which to live.

    Saw this on Tuesday. Mike and I both thought the same thing when we saw it. :hilarious:

    And full circle back to here.
    As you can see, it is very early. I'm not incredibly hungry, so I'll skip the salad.

    Not mine. Yuck! Mike and the Ski love San Pellegrino. I love FREE tap water.

    Mike has room for salad.

    Why mess with perfection? Same meal as yesterday. Less sauce, but that's okay too.
    IMG_6248.JPG

    I'm shocked Mike went the same dish though.
    IMG_6249.JPG

    And again, I'm done in half the time.
    IMG_6250.JPG

    As good as yesterday's dessert was. I would never knowingly pay $28 for two crême brûlée. Mike said he was full. He's not cheap like me, so maybe he really was full.

    And now, we're in the cab for a long, rainy drive back to JFK.

    Thank you NYC. It's been a memorable trip. Mike is already compiling a list of things to do on our next trip. Hopefully we don't wait another six years to do it.

    I've got yesterday's One World Trade Centre update to finish, but I've needed time to reflect.

    Damn straight. Lucky me, I can go to the source! :p

    They only put up those silly giant fake diamonds a few years ago. Back when I worked downtown, you had to know where the DD was, there was no flashy signpost. Mostly because they didn't want to get robbed. :cautious:

    For certain!! Because we have a pact. :)

    According to the Captain, we are number 20-something on the taxiway. It's going to be at least 1/2 an hour or so, and then a 55 minute flight.
    You should see all of these planes lined up ahead of us.

    Long story short, we're on our way home. Sort of.

    At least we weren't one of the dozens of cancelled flights. Watching Friends on the tv screen. Talking with my friends (you guys, in case it wasn't clear) on my phone. :hilarious:

    Just landed in Buffalo. Waiting for luggage, and then we have to stop at Wegman's, so maybe by 3:00.

    I gave them an 8-hour warning earlier today. I'm sure it's not going to be pretty.

    Need a shower and a cup of tea. Poor Mike has to work tomorrow ... or as he says, he has to go to work tomorrow. :(

    Welcome home, Jennifer and Mike! What a fun TR this was--I felt like I was there! :happy: You get points for all the neat plaques you photographed; I learned a lot of city and architectural history from those.

    Just heading to bed NOW?! I admire how you can pull an all-nighter. (P.S.: I fell asleep last night at 8:30. :p )

    Thanks, I did have a good week off. Hubs and I went out for lunch or dinner a few times. We both watched (and read) lots of news reports, and had lengthy debates (one our hobbies :D ).

    Took long outdoor walks each day. Bought a few things for home--a house plant, and a new accent rug for a bargain price at Target. Did some cleaning projects at home--spread out over a week (I hate deep cleaning). Finished all the yucky housecleaning yesterday with clean curtains. All that's left for us to do is mess up the place again! (That's not difficult . . . the dog does his part, too! :joyfull: )

    Thanks for the great report. I'm so glad you had fun and made it home safe. Sorry that Mike has to go to work today, that's the pits after a vacation.

    That was considerate of you. Seven more hours to party and one to clean up.

    They didn't. Clean up that is.
