Join us for a Christmas Holiday in NYC!

If you’ve always worked in December, as we have, and wished for a respite from your end-of-year demands, consider this:  Someday you may be retired with a chance to enjoy holiday travel.  And that would be us.  After almost 50 years of never taking a vacation during one of the most hectic months of the year, we dropped everything to take a spur-of-the-moment mini-trip to a city that oozes holiday spirit like no other: New York City!

So, for the next few days, we’re adding a few pics to our blog.  And we’re trying something new.  Not much copy.  Short and sweet.  Pics taken on the fly with a handy iPhone.  Here’s hoping you’ll enjoy seeing The Big Apple through our eyes under the heading Travel Series: Christmas Holiday NYC.

Please feel free to chime in.  If you’ve been to NYC or find something that reminds you of what you’ve seen, we’d love to hear from you.

Here’s to the holidays,

Bert and Rusha
