I’ve been absent from these pages for a bit, but only because I was gathering new experiences to share–in New York City, no less! The Dallas Symphony Chorus (and our fabulous Symphony) were invited to perform at a little place in the Big Apple called Carnegie Hall. No matter how many times we go there–and I think this was my 6th–walking in the stage door of that place just never gets old.
But that’s later. First, we had to get up in the middle of the night and drag ourselves to the airport for a way-too-early flight. The usual suspects (Vikki & Rosemary) and I elected to fly on our own and stay a few extra days. This earned us bright pink luggage tags with our names and the designation “deviant” . . . er, “deviation.” We arrived at the airport at the same time as another flight, so when I turned my phone on I heard this message:
“Susan! We’ve got a limo! What gate are you at, we’ll come get you.”
“A big, white limo!”
Sure enough, there was a big ol’ limo packed with chorus friends. Best ride into the city ever!
And a little something from one of these…
Then it was time for a stroll. We popped into the delightful gift shop of the American Folk Art Museum (too close to closing to see the museum itself), walked on the avenue (Fifth Avenue) a while, then wandered into FAO Schwarz® where Rosemary picked up this guy: and we visited these gentlemen made entirely of Legos:
By then our feet were tired and it was time to rest up before dinner. Ah, dinner…that gets a post of its own.
