Last summer I was in New York for a few days after a cruise. I've never spent any time in the "Big Apple" and was looking forward to visiting museums and seeing my daughter Karen and her family, whom I hadn't seen since she moved back East. Of course, my biggest thrill was seeing my grandson Hunter, who was only 9 months old when they moved. He was almost 5 years old last summer and quite a big boy. We had fun seeing the huge M&M store and going to the zoo in Central Park. At night I had this great view out my window of the Empire State Building. I'm glad I spent some time in the city but I sure love living in the wide open spaces of the Southern California desert.
