Dec. 3rd at THE TODAY SHOW....................

video

We were up bright and early to get to The Today Show...a sign had been custom printed 'Merry Christmas From Moultrie, Georgia'....although I don't live in this particular town I'm happy to be associated with those who do....our group starts with the smiling lady in the red sweater placing a clear plastic bag with a yellow toss game in the bag. I'm standing next to the sign... I have on a black leather jacket and red sweater and white hair. The gift I am placing in the bag is a yellow and blue box with a race car inside. Next to me is 'cousin Mary Jo'.... I was not aware that we would to to the Today Show until we were already in New York...Today Show provided some gifts...

We met Al Roker, whose wife, Debra Roberts, is from Perry, Georgia....Michael Jackson's brothers came around and shook hands, Matt Lauer did also. Unfortunately the pictures I made of Matt, Al and others didn't turn out very well.

2nd row: Joyce, Suzy, Mickie, LaRue
3rd row: David (tour guide), Nancy and unknown fellow

A friendly NBC photographer lady made pictures and later we bought them at the NBC Store. Also, the NBC staff were were very cordial and helpful to make pictures for us.

After our Today 'debut' we had breakfast at Dean & Deluca's. The food was delicious as we sat in the window watching the goings on in Rockefeller Center.

The weather was pleasant but breezy.....it was warmer in New York than down home in the south...

Then on to a day of shopping and seeing more of the 'Big Apple' sights....

To be continued.......

How fun!! I did this several years ago and and it was 16 degrees in NYC and snowed 16 inches while we were thre. Did not slow us down one bit! It is one of my very most favorite trips I have ever taken!!

Can't wait to hear more about your trip! I want to go back!

Hello Dear Friend Betty....

Yes, this is the picture I had in mind.... how silly of me not to remember that you sent it to me via e-mail. Lovely to see all you girls together and so many wearing 'red' just beautiful!!

Unfortunately I couldn't get the video clip to work.... I've tried several times, but I will try again.

The snow that I told you about yesterday has arrived... we've had quite a lot.... John's school closed! Blessings - Marion

Hi Betty,
So nice to be able to catch up with my blogging friends. I read some of your previous post and enjoyed your Christmas decorations. It also looks like you had a wonderful trip to NY. Great photos. And that group of girls you are with look like a great bunch to hang out with.
Blessings,
Sue

Love your commentary on photos on your trip to NYC! Sounds like a great trip. I've been there for business but not for pleasure...there is so much more to see, than I had the chance to see. Thanks for sharing this! It'll have to do until such time as I make it out there.
