Rockefeller Center

Pics from the Week – Christmas Edition

Man o Man has this week flown by. Amazing what happens when you have 4 days off and you roll into the week balls to the wall. This week was a good one and it is officially Christmas since our tree is lit, the one Rockefeller Center is lit and the former neighbor in Atlantic City is probably lit too!

IMG_2269Tree in Rockefeller Center the day before lighting.

IMG_2268Our Tree before lighting and trimming. #lotsofSap

IMG_2249The guys on 1st Ave at E71st were blowing and going.

IMG_2284Our Tree Lit and Decorated with the 8 ornaments.

IMG_2283Oh Look The Tree is Lit in Rockefeller Center *as seen on TV

IMG_2289It’s Christmas because the Doormen are working overtime!

Seasoned Greetings Folks!


Pictures of the Week – New York Edition

I have way too many good pictures on my iFoam not to share with the class.

IMG_1022Wait till I buy everyone on the NY East team their very own Seersucker suit. Yep even you MLP & work wife.

IMG_1026I understand this is one of the most Instagram’d exhibits next to the “fearless girl” in Lower Manhattan

IMG_0961We broke down and bought a car. We can put it in the closet of apartment when we aren’t using it.

IMG_0957Cubs win the world series last year and now the Yankees are atop the division. Albeit it is the American League but still they are rolling along.

IMG_1015Shout out to my Work Wife, LZ, MLP, UWS Girl, and any anyone else who drinks that crap blush wine. #CarbunkleCares

IMG_0976Got to love the views from the buildings near Central Park

IMG_1005Yeah try to explain this one to me please.

IMG_0996A street fair right outside our apartment door! How Cool is that!

IMG_0981Katie and Bean moved from next door to Brooklyn. Bean (springer spaniel) would come over to get a treat from us and to terrorize Maddy and Maya. They left this for us. They were good people and we will miss them. 

IMG_1032Werk is hard

IMG_1006Wee Fiona made the shopping list for Daddy. Sad thing about it is I bet 10 people on the river during BBQfest wouldn’t have caught it. 

Have a good weekend!


Spring has sprung in NYC

Happy Easter Spud! No I am not going to divulge the meaning or circumstances of that statement on this blog. No doubt that Mr. Flowered Man Bag is cleaning off of his laptop because he spewed coffee all over it. Another time folks.  We have officially kicked Old Man Winter to the curb here in Manhattan. Goodbye Puffy Coat, hello Blue and White Seersucker suit and white bucks.

For those of you Memphians who have already reapplied Gold Bond a dozen times and or had the boys from Conway Services work on your air conditioner allow me to bring you up to speed. Here in New York we don’t really say that it is spring until it is after Easter and they take down the ice skating rink in Rockefeller Plaza. This past Sunday was Easter if you didn’t see the dozen “He has Risen” (I thought everybody was making soufflés for Easter Dinner) posts on Facebook and today they melt the ice in the plaza to make way for alfresco dining.

What does that mean to this former Memphian who is considering becoming a fan of the Brooklyn Nets because they already have low expectations you ask? This means that we dodged another Winter Death Bullet that the Northeast typically gets. I recall 3 years back when I was drinking Ice Cold Bud Light Iced Tea at BBQ Fest with the Asian Fireman and he was telling me about the 25+ days of below freezing weather they had that winter. I mean, I bitch when it is 40 and the wind is blowing. Can you imagine me when it is below freezing for more than 3 days? One of the docs that I smoke cigars sums it up perfectly with when he told us why he takes so many vacations in the winter. “I have everything I need up here; I have a Penthouse apartment in the city, I have a summer house on the shore but the weather up here is lousy. That is why I shag ass below the 16th latitude.” By the way, we made Doc pay for our cigars that day……what an asshole.

So to my fellow Memphians, enjoy spring and the spring festivals. To my Belizean buddies, enjoy some quiet time after the Easter parties and get read for Lobster fest. And to you Nova and KLC Man, enjoy that frozen snow till July 4th when you have 2 weeks of your summer!

IMG_0691Couples Skate is over kids!

IMG_0685No I didn’t steal this from LZ, I went to mass on Easter Sunday with EGP. If you don’t believe me ask her.

IMG_0653Good Friday I stepped up my Game with a bowtie. I think I may shake some shit up here this summer. First I need a Brooks Brothers Boating Straw hat.

IMG_0692Maya was very happy when I told her that there wouldn’t be anymore winter and she would have to scrape ass over the snow.

FullSizeRenderBB (Baltimore Bjorksu) told me that she was disappointed that her new city didn’t embrace pastels on Easter. I told her that next year she should bring her butt up here. New York makes a spectacle out of everything. Behold the Easter Bonnet Parade up 5th Ave. *photo borrowed from ahealthysliceofpai*

I may be ok with Gold Bond Usage till mid May folks. In other words, don’t buy long on the Gold Bond Stock.

Pictures from the Weeks Past

Losing a laptop will certainly mess with you mad organizational skills. Here are some pictures in no particular order.

IMG_1023Hey RJ, ML, BR, Double Birds and KM – Look I have a pool up here too for Friday Board Meetings. It may be across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral but it’s a pool.

IMG_1064I think this was the only day in May that the Asian Fireman worked.

IMG_1088aI so wanted to go up and knock on the door and ask if “The Shitter was Full”

IMG_1090Asked if they knew the LVD and they said they never heard of her.

IMG_1094Always good to see “The Carol”, LVD and baby Brother.

IMG_1103What to put on my bagel?

IMG_1128I must admit, I was jealous of Baby Fine Hair when she sent this pic to keep the tradition alive. For those of you wondering – Each and every Sunday of Beale Street Music Festival I would go down to the park on Sunday Han Solo as momma didn’t want to fool with it. So that I would remain married, I would always bring her a Pronto Pup on my way home. The pic on the right was 3 years ago when we had monumental rain and cold temps. My friends who took the pic couldn’t believe that I walked across the mud pit to get a Pronto Pup. They said I looked like Patton crossing into Italy. Momma wanted a Corn Dog!

IMG_1171Hey JL, I know your thoughts on 3pc Suits but what about skinny highwater pants?

 Have a good one.
