Madi is gazing at something in NYC. Can you guess what it is? Tomorrow I’ll post a photo of what she saw when she looked up.

After a local ‘hockey’ blogger, Patten Fuqua ended his blog about the Nashville flood with the phrase “We Are Nashville” it became the rallying cry our city. I have used one of my previous photos of downtown Nashville to create a poster to sell for the victims of the flood.
100% of the profits from this poster will go to help Nashville flood victims.
Our church is listed as one of the official pick up and drop off spots for the local Red Cross for the flood victims. We’ve had semi trucks coming and going with relief supplies from all over the United States including water, dog food, 15000 pounds of food etc.
It’s just wonderful to see how people really care and how much they are willing to help their neighbors even if they are far away. We are expecting a semi truck from Simmons Mattress Company in the next week or two that contains $250,000 worth of queen size Beauty Rest Mattresses. Our church found out last week that there are victims that are still sleeping on a concrete floor so we can’t wait to receive the mattresses and add sheet sets and deliver them to the people who need them.
So I hope that you or someone you know would help by purchasing one of my posters. You can click here to view and buy the poster. The posters are on heavy cardstock with a semigloss finish. The size if 11 x 17. Money Orders or PayPal accepted. For orders paid by money order, please allow 1 week for delivery from the time of my receipt of your money order.
Thanks so much for your help! It is much appreciated.
Continuing with the NYC theme, here’s a shot of the front door of Sak’s Fifth Avenue in New York.
One of the most famous retailers in the world, this elegant department store has been dressing the well-heeled since 1902.
Opened by Andrew Saks, the original store was located in Herald Square (where Macy’s resides).
After merging that store with Gimbel’s, Saks opened this Fifth Avenue store catering to the wealthy in 1924.
In honor of our family traveling to NYC next month (just booked our tickets!)…..here’s a photo that I took of Rockefeller Center on my last visit. I LOVE NYC!!!
Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it – New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it – New York, New York
