Speakng Thousands of Words

The sidebar is sufferng from nervous exhaustion.

I am...short on words these days. I'm thrilled that now I can have photos agan, but I don't have nearly enough time to download, crop, edit and upload them. Still, it's a big improvement and somethng I missed greatly.

Here are some photos I took n Times Square last Tuesday between 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 am. I love that I can take photos at night and they are perfectly clear and bright.

The new ABC studios.

The Apple Jack dner, that is always closed when I want to stop n. It sure looks closed, doesn't it? How many places do you know that close at 11:40?

Huge new TV screen -- it's several stories tall -- those squares n the middle are the wndows. I bet it's freaky to have your office there.

Howard Johnson's n Times Square. They have $3.25 drnk happy hour -- and after the recent nsanity of work, I am begnnng to understand how people become alcoholics. Two drnks and I was relaxed both mentally and physically and forgot the day's stresses completely. Frightenng.

It was so nice to be able to wander the streets at that hour on a borng-old Tuesday and have plenty to see and not face scary, deserted streets.
