The weather in upstate New York has been very nice. Ger and I enjoyed our day yesterday by going on a nature walk. Ger loves to rock collect so we busily gathered rocks that she found interesting.
Enjoy your day,
We finished our yard cleanup last Saturday and cooked for Mother's Day last Sunday. My mom is almost back to the way she was before she became ill. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers! On Monday morning John and I put the last of our supplies in the van, picked up a cup of coffee at a coffee shop, and headed for the interstate to begin our trip to Upstate New York. We spent four days on the road. I tried to make sure that John took good care of his wrist and elbow but at the end of a day of driving we were tired and needed to find a motel. The drive did not give John any excessive difficulty because of his surgery. He continues to heal and only occasionally has some discomfort.
We had wonderful weather for our drive and the traffic was not heavy. But we did encounter quite a few construction areas that slowed us down considerably. We arrived Thursday afternoon and our first stop was our favorite pizza place. I was thinking about that pizza being our first stop even before we picked up the keys for our summer apartment. After a yummy meal we went to see what our summer home looked like. Our apartment is small but roomy enough for all our possessions and very comfortable.
The weather has been sunny and beautiful so we've been able to get out and enjoy our visit here. The picture below was taken at a small neighborhood bar in East Utica called the Brewhouse who we heard had a wonderful Friday fish fry. John has been waiting for 10 months for his haddock fish fry. The fish fry was very good and so was the Utica Club beer! When we parked in the parking lot of the bar, John said that there were old apartments at the parking lot location and they were torn down about 30 years ago. How did he know? John lived in those apartments from birth to about 4 years old!
Enjoy your weekend, I know we will,
Love and hugs,

Beauty is not just seen with the eyes , but it is also felt with the heart.
As days go by and they become the "by gone days ", the precious memories ,like our antiques are both the things we treasure so much ***
Have a great day smile be happy and make precious memories so they will be treaured in the by gone days of your life**

Hello my friend,
Sad day today…
I just buried my best buddy
Gizmo, my Lhasa Apso, age 15
He started life with 3.5 years of abuse
Then I met him at a shelter
He had a fun & laughter & comfort,
for the rest of his pampered life.
He loved people to death
He welcomed any animal into his house;
to shared a meal and to stay the night.
I will miss this special happy ambassador
to the world.
9/22/98 to 5/6/13
Have a great week… Hugs T P
