October Fall Foliage Walk in Central Park



Here I am the Black Fran Drescher with my nasally New York voice narrating today’s walk through Central Park.  Did not know I sounded like Fran Drescher because well, how often do we listen to the sound of our own voice?  Anyway as you listen to me narrate the joys of NYC’s Central Park know that I will never be asked to do Voice-Overs unless it’s for some type of cartoon or dorky video game!! LOL!!  🙂   😀



Snowstorm Jonas


This is one Badass Blizzard. Thank you Jesus!! The Museum closed at 2:30 pm. Made it home safely to Brooklyn! NYC bus service shut down at 12 noon so I had to hoof it to 86th Street Central Park West! Had to walk in the street. Fortunately the Mayor and Gov. ordered all non-emergency vehicles off the streets so I did not get run over. Caught a D train to 59th Street and picked up the A train which was running local. Snow was inside the Ralph Avenue station. The entire platform was snowbound. The Mayor and Gov. cut off all subway service at 4 pm. Made it home by the skin of my teeth!

Snowstorm Jonas has brought the Big Apple to a halt except for the rich people on the Upper East Side frolicking with their kids and dogs in Central Park. But for those of us forced to work it was an icy hell.  Glad to have made it home safely.

Here is the Google Photos link because I cannot get the video to post to this page. I took this photos from the windows at the museum. Please excuse the blurriness of some photos since at times the snow is drifting and a total white-out!






Share Your World – 2015 Week #36


If you were a pen, what type, style and color would you be?

A Fountain Pen with purple ink. I often feel like an anachronism. One born out of time, meant to be in another century. As a kid I had some fountain pens and I loved them despite the fact that they could be messy. One just had to learn to tame that ink! LOL!

How many languages do you you speak?

One. English. Took Spanish in High School but that was over 30 years ago! However living in New York does give me opportunities to use my rickety Spanish skills. One day I will master the Spanish language.

Are you a listener or talker?

I listen but really enjoy talking more.

Rather Have:  Which would you rather have, 2 million dollars or true love? 

True Love. Uncle Sam would take most of the $2 million leaving me with not much left. However with true love you never know. Perhaps my next man will be a millionaire and I’ll have both Love and Wealth! 🙂  LOL!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Being able to spend time outside enjoying New York City and today having fun hiking the Ramble Nature Trails in Central Park.  I’m becoming a Real Rambling Rosie!!  😀 LOL!!  Check out my pictures:  http://roamingurbangypsy.com/2015/09/07/rambling-through-central-park/

Looking forward to my upcoming vacation!! Yessssssss!!!!!!!!  More rambling and exploring the Big Apple!! Booyah!!

With Every Season Turn, Turn, Turn

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Turn, Turn, Turn.”

Seasons change so quickly! Which one do you most look forward to? Which is your least favorite?

The Byrds – Turn! Turn! Turn!

My Favorite Season is Summer! I Love Heat, Sunshine, Warmth. Must be my African blood. I wish New York’s climate was more like California, Hawaii or Florida. Summer gives me the opportunity to wear dresses and skirts.  I tend to get out more because the weather is good during the summer.  Going to the park, the beach, just being able to soak in the sun’s rays is my ideal dream.  I Love seeing the trees and flowers in bloom, walking through the grass and enjoying nature.

My least favorite season is winter. I HATE cold, ice, snow, & freezing temps. Ugh!!  Housebound. Hibernating (NOT!!)  Traveling in snow and ice is dangerous. Fear of falling and breaking my limbs. Transportation can be iffy and who wants to stand outside in the snow, sleet and/or ice waiting for a bus or train?!  Yuck!!  Having to spend 20 minutes putting on 5 layers of clothing is not sexy!!  Neither is not seeing that black ice hiding under the snow and taking a tumble. Nor is getting unwanted exercise shoveling snow and putting down deicer just so you can get out of the house!  Also cold frozen winter temps are really bad for my arthritis. Painful locked joints are no fun.

So give this hot blooded woman a sunshiny 85 degree day 24/7/365!!
