It’s been very interesting shopping around in a big city. I go to the mall and there are absolutely no parking spaces. What tends to happen is people circle and follow someone coming out of the mall, follow them to their car so that they can get a parking space.
The holiday season doesn’t always bring out the best in people. I was in WalMart when a lady was having a screaming match with another woman. I thought it was going to come to blows, but thank God it didn’t.
Unlike the rest of NYC, on Long Island you can turn right on red unless there is a sign stating you can’t. I was waiting to turn, but the light was red and the sign was not in an obvious place. The lady behind me started beeping me and she had some interesting hand signals. I tried to point to the “no turn on red” sign but she was having a fit in her car. She huffed and puffed, and put her head back against her seat. You would have thought the world was coming to an end. Finally when the light changed, I went and she sped past me.
On Saturday it snowed over 2 feet here in NYC. What a beautiful blanket of snow we all woke up to on Sunday. I witnessed six people get out of their cars to help another car stuck in the snow. They pushed until the car got free. My upstairs neighbors shoveled all our snow by the time we came home from church. Yes, we opened the church up on Sunday and three other people came. We live only a block away so Tom wanted to open it up just in case anyone wanted to come.
During this holiday season remember tis’ the season to be jolly. Spread the love.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone.
