White Glove Man

Who better to help move your valuables than a man wearing white gloves? I don't know how much he costs but am sure he serves up a safe effort.

Bird And Statue

A bird stops to take a gander at the Statue of Liberty, a little before sunset. Perhaps with an eagle eye, one could see many things on such a nice day. Sometimes, you just have to wing it.

Busy River

boats on the Hudson River with the Empire State Building and Manhattan


Another beautiful day here--perfect for boating on the Hudson River. Here, we see a cruise ship leaving town, heading down river, with Manhattan in the background. As you can see, some other craft use this busy waterway. Watch out, little guys!

If you have to do this job, today is your day--not too hot, not too cold, but juuuust right. Even so, my friends, I hope you get a nice cold one (or 4) after your dusty day on the job.

Flume Gorge

tourists hike within the Flume Gorge, New Hampshire


Tourists hike within the Flume Gorge in New Hampshire--definitely a great place to visit. Only about a six hour drive from New York City and you are "out there" in spectacular nature. You might want to see it for yourself sometime, since no photo can duplicate your own actual experience.

When the tourists don't get off the bus, how do you sell them water? That's right, you put a bucket on a pole and reach it up to them. Nice one, guys! (59th Street, Manhattan)
