The Real Famous in Central Park...

Well one day I hit the park. To see what "real" celebrities I could find there.

I LOVE Central Park. I just want to get that out there.

And funny story. My husband and I walked there from our hotel and then I said, let's just walk up the one side of the park... so we began our trek. And even though I'm a native New Yorker (hahaha) I kinda headed right into the park and just started walking the way I thought was NORTH. So when we came out the other end... I thought, "well, that wasn't as big as I thought it was!"... I found out later that instead of walking the Length of the park... I walked the Width of the park... so I didn't even see a third of it! (Give me a break... they don't have mountains!!!)

But I did find something there that you guys TRULY need to know is the heart and soul of this park...See this picture below:

Lovely statue right? I mean COME ON... even though that body is made of stone... I still had to wipe a little drool from the side of my mouth, just sayin...

Anyway, you probably think I am telling you the STATUE is the Heart n' Soul of New York. BAH! Right! Even I understand you guys aren't THAT gullible! No No... look a little closer here...

See it now? The pigeon! It brings a tear to my eye just to see one of these beauties! I could be going out on a limb here (no pun intended) but these very well could be the state BIRD?! :) But don't take my word on that...


ALSO in the park... to my great JOY! I spied a dog walker...that's right! A dog WALKER people! This guy supports himself by walking dogs. And if you squint your eyes, cross them, and poke your eyeball... he kinda looks like Cesar the Dog Whisperer... no? The Dog walker is NOT the one with the Letterman Shirt... that would be MSM.

Speaking of Naked...

These guys claimed to be naked-something-or-other and I PPPPFFFFTTT...In their faces! "First of all" I screamed, "Your Not NAKED!!!" They have their SHOES on and let's not forget the towels...and the coordinating shoulder tattoo's... then I almost said, "Get a NEW idea"... the NakedUn-Naked Cowboy/Cowgirl already got the Naked bit covered.

People these days. *Shakes Head*

These are my questions... Look at the picture above... WHY IN ALL THAT IS HOLY are those UGLY 80's Sandals coming back into style??? And can you find Waldo in that picture? I've been looking all week!!! :)

Have a good Monday guys! :)

ok, so maybe that poor lady thinks she is retro - got sold a pair of sandals someone dug out of the back of their closet dusted off and put on Ebay....??? maybe

What were those guys doing anyway - they would be arrested here I swear! Didn't you just want to go pull the towel off :)

Let just say my hubby didn't really let me get close enough to pull the towel off... but if I were a betting girl...I'd bet there were shorts under those towels...

And the shoes COULD have come from E-Bay... but they were everywhere in New York and even where I live... it's like my worst nightmare!

Have they blocked off the street to cars in Time Square? That's awesome. You don't have to dodge cars while going to Sephora.

Oh, and check out my blog today. You can join my SNuggie gang!

I don't understand why people would want to make a career being naked. It's like a world without food.

Rance said...

I love your posts Rachelle - LOVE THEM! you crack me up! Who knew you were so good at writing! Loves!

Southern Sage said...

Do they not have places to eat up there?

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

I think I might have ripped the towels off. I mean come on..why are ya walkin around like that people?

mother goose said...

i love the city! we fly out there often. I should remember to take my camera.

Malea said...

Just 'cause she's wearin' em don't make 'em in style. New York does seem to be the good, the bad, and the ugly now, doesn't it? I need to go.

Malea said...

...to New York City, that is.

Chief said...

Hey...glad I hopped around and found your site!

Something about me to introduce myself...I have a secret crush on Cesar Milan. I do.

I am now a loyal follower. Hope to see you soon at my place!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Kristina P... my snuggie pic to get into the gang is on its way!

Blonde Duck--no wiser words were spoken

Rance--Love ya bro!

Sage-They probably ARE feminine... cause all hot guys with hot bodies are... except for my GUY!

Emily--I would have... only I saw shorts, so it just would have made them mad AND they could have caught up with me! :)

MOTHER GOOSE--yes yes... take your camera! And continue my quest! :)

Malea--It's a really good place to visit... and those shoes are EVERYWHERE I've traveled this year... not just New York... such a tragedy!

Chief--Yea! Welcome! I'm going over to check out your blog now!

Just Jules said...

what were those shoes called? hirachi's or something like that?

Shawn said...

Don't get me started on bad footwear....ugh----crocs come to mind.

Love NY, by the by----I'm only 4 hours away---and you couldn't stop by?

Gladiator Sandals were ugly back in the 80s... can't believe they've resurfaced with a new name and are apparently "hip and with it" again... wait, since "hip and with it" hasn't been heard from the cool kids since the 80s (or maybe earlier) perhaps now they're "sick" or something like that?

Homer and Queen said...

I would have yanked that towel!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

hee hee You are such a silly goose!

I totally get turned around in Central Park too! I'm so directionally dyslexic!!!!

Aubrey said...

If it weren't for the beautiful Rocky Mountains being my compass (that I never have to carry or try to read), I'd have no sense of direction. Ever.

Debbie said...

I'm so with ya on those sandals. Really.
