I'm going to pretty much just post my pictures and video links from today's "work". My first photo has a time stamp of 5:59 a.m. and the last photo taken was at 7:00 p.m. I had been out running a couple of errands and when I got home, it was looking like they were pretty much finished up. So I got myself upstairs, grabbed my camera, and watched while they got their trucks all positioned, moved the last of the road closed signs, and took off down Fifth Avenue.
So without further ado, here are a batch of photos:
Then they gathered at Pullman Square.
And as long as I was up there, I figured I might as well take a couple shots of that beautiful river:
I should probably have taken more still shots and fewer videos cause the videos didn't turn out real great - I used the zoom a fair amount and didn't realize how blurry that would make the pictures. But here are the links to the ones I kept. Somewhat repetitive and basically boring, but it was exciting while it was all going on. :)
Not very fancy, but I've worn myself out with all this hi-tech stuff!

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
