When in New York, the first time for me in a summery time, and I was able to see many place and see a number of people.  Was there to take my daughter, Renae, out from New Jersey when she'd flown out a few months earlier and taking care of kids, especially in a couple homes.  Well, I drove out from Omaha, and stayed with her at that house, and then was driving up north to another friend I hadn't seen for many years, since about '67.  Then Renae and I had gone down to Washington, D.C., and could stay in a house connected to when my husband at the Offutt AFB had known a couple who had moved and been in the D.C. location.  A few days later, after back up to the family kids in New Jersey, we drove all the way home.  Didn't spend any time at a motel.  We drove for that 1200 miles-ish time.  We both were driving and resting in the car.  Left N.J. in an early afternoon and got home in Omaha in the mid-morning time.  I slept for a day or two after that... DUH!... but it was a blessing to be out there and to be home.    AND, BTW,  when walking in the NYC area for the first time, this man I saw sleeping just off the sidewalk and sure grabbed my attention.  So, I had added a Word on there about 5 years ago.

Leaving home!  My birthday had been the day before leaving!

My first time on the huge "boat".

And we were leaving; she and the parents and kids loved each other, then and forever!

Sleeping in your car is often where the homeless who are rich enough to own a car sleep. Your trip to New York was awesome, and the sights were educational in more ways than one. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
