Well, the big fellow has arrived and is hawking Christmas trees outside Rite Aid on 9th Avenue.
He drives down from Alaska at Thanksgiving and heads home to get back to work on Christmas Eve.
All the little local shops and restaurants are getting decked out for the season. Here the French crepe place
here the deli. The little red Winterberries are a new one on me - and very pretty.
Even the vegetarian place is getting a little bit merry.
Ah! holly berries outside my favorite house on 21st St
and Buster's friend Oliver outside the now-closed and much lamented Empire Diner.
PS Big excitement my book web site is finally up now four of my books are available on Kindle. To celebrate, I'm having a Kindle countdown on Ruth and Gisela (first edition was called A Fortunate Child). You can get it today for only $2.99 - after ten days it goes back up to $7.50
