Bob and Mark, I'm sorry, even though I'm so close I just can't make it.
My Mom is in terrible pain and it's tough enough to go to work and leave her like this, Thank God Walter was home this week to look after her during the day and give her lunch.
I took her for an MRI yesterday and we go back on Monday, hopefully they will move quickly and make the appointments for the epidural shots if that's the route they will take. Right now she's on Oxycontin and that's barely working.
Hopefully next time and I am still planning for STP.
We will all miss having you and Walter there with us. :( Hopefully next time. And definitely for STP. :)
Your mother is in my prayers for a speedy recovery. She must be very happy to have the two of you by her side right now!
Hope your Mom bounces back quickly Kathy!
We had a nice visit to the 911 Memorial site in Lower Manhattan yesterday. It was very sad and
touching to be standing in the very place where so many people were killed just 10 short years ago.
Above is the reflecting pool and waterfall where the south tower once stood. There are two
pools, one for each tower.
The Freedom Tower, still under construction, will reach a total height of
1776 feet when completed.
Inside a temporary museum, until the true one is completed, this Flag of Honor hangs.
This display shows the possessions of a young man who perished on that
morning. Notice his wedding ring placed carefully in the center.
Our group in front of the south reflecting pool.
A complete set of photos can be found here
And a short video of the site can be found below. I apologize for it
being in a narrow portrait mode, instead of a wider landscape mode. I keep
forgetting to turn the cellphone horizontal. :o
If you are ever in Manhattan, I would encourage you to visit this memorial.
You will be glad you did!
Thank you Bob for the wonderful photos and the story behind them.You're photos are the only way I will see anything in NYC!!:o
