Wall Street

We had to walk down it. Because it's Wall Street. And we just had to.

(I remember in high school our history teacher made us "buy" stock in three different companies and follow them for a few weeks. I almost collapsed from the stress of watching everything go up and down and whatnot. It didn't matter that it was fake, it was too much! I can't imagine doing that for a living.)



Someone very pish-posh was exiting as we walked by. There are seriously more barricades around this place than around any Air Force base. And cops. With guns. Big guns. I don't know who it was that got into this car, but she had a gorgeous Louis bag and knew how to accessorize a fur coat.


Because I'm all patriotic like that! A thing of beauty.


Looking the other direction.



The Bull isn't actually ON Wall Street, but right around the corner.


And it was very anatomically correct... of which Nate just HAD to take a picture with his cell phone. So I took one of him! Ha.

I didn't get a picture of it, but we did go into the Starbucks just down the street. (Vanilla Latte with whipped cream! Yay!) Hmm... for some reason it was a whole lot nicer than the ones up by Times Square. They even had public bathrooms, something few do around the city. There was a whole crowd of people in expensive suits and gorgeous shoes. And so many accents! (But no one was smiling. Not even when I did. Very seldom do people NOT smile back. Harumph.) I wanted desperately to go around asking people what they did and where they were from. Alas, Nate was with me. The merciful voice in my head said, "Save him the embarrassment." Besides, did I mention the cops? With guns? Big guns?

An American Institution. And I was there.

do you know I daydream about taking a trip with you someday. And we could spend an entire afternoon asking the Starbucks customers what they do, who they are, where they come from and what not...without the 'boys' to be embarrassed of us :)

I thought I saw you the other day in New York when I was getting in my car. I was the one in the fur with a LV bag. Did you see me? I always tell my little friends Thor and Big Eddie they look scarry. Hee Hee they are harmless...

It is a crack up about the bull. I am so sad Todd and I had to cancel our trip- it would have been NEXT WEEK! Especially after seeing your pics. What an amazing time you must've had!!

How fun? I was laughing at anon because I immediately wondered if your hubby was taking a good look at his butcher?

The title is from Over the Hedge. I love Hammy. Thanks for sharing the pictures. The creators of Barnyard the Original Party Animals could have taken some tips from that bull.
