First off, thank you everyone for all the genuine comments that were left on my prior post. They all were very kind and am grateful that so many of you took the time to say some great things to start the season off right. I apologize for not responding to each one as I normally try to do , just too damn busy this last week, sick, and turning 40 is not fun except that I had a great surprise party thrown for me and a good time was had by all !!!
They even turned my party into a King theme !!!! Good Stuff !! Maybe 40 and on will be just as fun as the rest of life, keep tuning in here til I'm 80 to find out.
Yes , the King turned the big 40 last week !!
...still will be keeping his eyes on the city and bringing it to you !!
This was my Birthday Cake which will NOT wind up on the website CakeWrecks !!...hopefully.
I was shocked at the cake , King face and all, I had a feeling they would smash it in my face and say you're no king !! ...however they let me have my cake and eat it too.
My man Eddie was ringing the bell on Wall St raising money for all the good things that the Salvation Army provides for people in times of need. I asked Eddie if he would say hello to my readers and he asked if I would make a donation which as I always do for the Salvation Army put my cash in the pot , he thanked me, wished me a happy holiday and asked me what to say.
Here is my man Eddie wishing us all well just as a band that was traveling to each Salvation Army sight, just arrived to play a song and then move on to another charitable sight. Perfect timing for the King.
Not quite sure if I'm King of the Cats,The King of New York Cats, or The King Of New York Hacks !!! No worries though I'll take any title !! LOL

If you have read my prior street fair post , this is the "One Man" who was playing the National Anthem as people protested America, however on this day he was chillin' playing "Silver Bells"...and he looks like Santa to boot, or maybe he is.

Announcing the New York Stock Exchange Tree Lighting
Entrance to the New York Stock Exchange and their Christmas Wreath.
Usually there is a full flag flying covering the columns, but they changed it up a bit and made it look supercool for the holidays and to remember our troops overseas. Classy.
Not a very clear shot, but the tree is not lit yet , and I'm a lousy photographer.
Tree lit during the day.
Looking good as the sun goes down !!
Now that's a Christmas Tree !!!!
They had a pretty elaborate show planned with a finale of Aretha Franklin singing some christmas carols, but I had to get to my second job driving the taxi, so I got to see this talented group of carolers who could give Aretha a run for her money, enjoy.

So in closing , I know I said I would try to post everyday this month, but I failed miserably at that. So , I will TRY to post something everyday or every other day to show you how the city is shaping up for Christmas and the Holidays. I will bring you to the sights you want to see as if you are in my taxi with me, not only am I your Holiday tour guide, but I am also The King of New York Hacks....or Cats...whatever. LOL
