What can Northfield learn from NYC?

You may have noticed that my blog posts in the past week have been somewhat fluff-oriented. Thin. Light weight. Boring, even. That’s because Robbie and I spent the past week in the New York City/Jersey City area,  visiting our son Collin and his wife Amanda.  When traveling/on vacation, I don’t like spending too much time on LoGro, but I feel compelled to have something new on the blog every day because 500-1000 people visit daily.

Stop praying. God's too busy to find you a parking spotWe got back late last night and I’ve got a few blog posts in my head on the theme: What can Northfield learn from NYC?  I’ll get them up over the next week, photos included, of course.

In the meantime, here’s a photo of a whimsical billboard that we spotted adjacent to the High Line.

    Glad to see you back on your “bully pulpit,” Griff. Hmmmm. Seems I have heard that first word around town recently. Trying to remember where…… I am sure you will track it down.

    The billboard reminds me of that old joke: Guy drives around the block many times, praying aloud that a parking spot will open. He finally sees one and pulls in, saying, “Never mind, God, I found one!”
