Route 13, en route to SUNY Cortland. Tiffany and I took this road to a college tour there - a few years back.

I couldn't think of what to do for 13, so I walked around my apartment (studio=didn't take long to walk around) and opened my bathroom cupboard and some lotions fell out. Then I looked in and saw a couple more....sadly I had more than 13 but I only took a picture of the first 13.
This is one of my all time favorites of grandson Grayden. (I do think it's the eyes that make me smile.) This, of course, was July 4th and he was three. (He is ten now, almost eleven.) He is the reason for the vegetable garden and I think he was the only one that helped me with it. (Others volunteered, but didn't show up.) It has gone back to lawn now with a much smaller garden nearer to the garden hose and the house. He has always loved the flag and we marched many a time with him in the lead with the flag.

This photo was taken at Santa's Workshop, North Pole, New York. I was only four and my cousin, Tommy, must have been three. I don't remember many details about this trip, but I DO remember the 'north pole' which was ice cold to the touch in the middle of the summer and I DO remember seeing Santa. I have some memory of buildings like little Swiss chalets but I have nothing clear in my mind. (I would say that Mom must have cut my bangs!) I found the following pictures on the internet.
Whenever it snows I remember mittens from Grandma Scott ( I still have a pair of green ones) and the mitten clips. Ours usually arrived connected by a long piece of yarn. When the yarn broke It Was replaced by the mitten clips. OH! I got this pictured from the Internet.
This is a water tower being taken down in July of 2010...
My friends, sisters and I use to have races around the cross bars at the bottom....One friend fell, broke her arm and was in the hospital, in traction, with a pin in her elbow for a long time...I don't think it detoured us from having races...
Our land ends up on Musculounge Bay. This was a favorite picnic spot through the years for our poor but happy family. We didn't go to the movies, go to McDonalds or the beach. Somehow, I think we did alright. (thanks Mom and Dad) We still sometimes go to picnic there, but I think this last year we didn't go. Everyone too busy. We will have to make that a priority this year with the grandkids.

I apparently don't take many pictures of my many bad habits. I did find this one. I love to mow the lawn, so much so that I hardly do anything else in the summer other than mow the lawn. Its a great stress reliever and it gets the lawn mowed besides. As you can see Smokey wanted to take his turn. This was in 2004 and he has long been in kitty heaven. (he apparently had a few bad habits himself).
