Because I check out the site, the magic world of marketing and internet, conveniently places an ad at the top of my yahoo page for Groupon. It shows current deals for various cities. Today I noticed New York City pop up, so I went to check it out.
The discount today is for a New York City Photo Safari ($40 for an $80 tour). A tour with advice on taking photos. Instruction and tour combined. Oh how wonderful that sounds... for me...but I am here...in SOUTH Georgia. So I thought, "hmmmm, maybe I could get it and tell hubs we had to go to NYC...it would be fun!." I would love to go back and now have a spot to bookmark if I do, but that is probably not the way to make it happen.
So as I was wishing there was somewhere closer I decided to check out Atlanta, and there is. And I missed a great one that was being hosted tonight. A full moon photo tour workshop... but again, I have something to watch for and plan.
As I was looking I glanced out the window and saw, on this early Saturday morning, part of my crew out working on replacing our mailbox - the baseball bat bandits have mutilated the other and the duct tape is not holding any longer. Can't imagine what the mailman had to say when it fell off in his hands the other day...
(the bat bandits had been hitting about every 3 months, so we just kept repairing/improvising the other one).
And the sun shining through the limbs was energizing. And though it will be hot as ever in a few more hours, the 76 degrees was relatively comfortable. And it is the weekend...
Hope you all have a great one!
Oh, and for a groupon near you http://www.groupon.com/
