My condolences on your loss. My MIL passed away today, but she has been suffering from cancer for months so it really was a blessing for us, but it still is very hard mentally and emotionally. Take all the time you need.

Glenn, I am so sorry for your loss!

Lauren, I loved your first installment! And I don't think taking pictures of everything in New York City makes you a country bumpkin. I have lived in London and Berlin which I would consider two major European cities and still when I saw New York for the first time I was just in awe of everything and took pictures of all kind of things just like you!

I'm so sorry to hear about the untimely loss of your former boss. I'm sure it has been a draining few days for you and a really difficult time for his family.

Lauren, you are off to a great start! I would be the country girl, too. When I go to large cities, I find myself looking around with my mouth open in awe. Crazy Pez machine - makes you wonder what would give someone that idea. "Hmmm, I think I will sell giant Pez" Your hotel looks really nice - how did you sleep, being in such a busy area?

Glenn, so sorry for the loss of your friend. It is so hard to understand why some people leave us too early.

So sorry for your loss. I know you are relieved her suffering is over, but it is still so painful. I will be praying for your family.

Thank you all. It seems weird for me to accept condolences when the family is grieving so much more than those of us who worked with him and were his friends....but this is where I should just shut up and say 'thank you', because we are grieving too. He was a seemingly very healthy guy who collapsed and died while jogging, so it was a total shock and still extremely hard to believe.

The hotel looks pretty cool. Can't wait to see the room.
Thanks!

We believe there are only 4 in that chapter, but let me know if you really think there's something we need to consider.

Thank you.

I haven't even done the touristy stuff, so I can't recommend anything to you yet.

I was starting to wonder how long you were going to horn in on their girls only weekend when you posted a pic of Judy in the cab and called her mom. I was still a bit confused so I scrolled back up to the top and OOOOHHHHH, now I get it! I think I need a late afternoon caffeine jolt - I'm starting to go soft in the head!
Rebecca, Rebecca, Rebecca. Glad you eventually figured out that it was a higher-pitched voice than mine, doing the narrating.

Thanks Magdalene. Hey, is there a german equivalent for the term "country bumpkin"? Just curious.

That Pez wouldn't fit in your pocket very well.
