This was from November 2, 2009 when the US NY came to dock in Manhattan. Kelly got us passes to go out on the Intrepid to get a great look at it coming into dock. It was mainly made from the steel from the Twin Towers. There was HIGH security everywhere and this was the fireboat out in the Hudson River...

I find this odd. Cows painted on a fence behind the Octagon House.
This is the Octagon House in Camillus, New York.
And, this is the spiral stairway up through the middle of the house. You can look down from the very top and see a braided rug and card table that are on a stone floor in the basement. The stairs are very steep and narrow.

This is Jim's grandson Jacob...When we were in Cancun his parents made him wear this hat everywhere...One day he was in the water for 5 hours straight..Pool, ocean, hot tub repeat...There were 5 pools...It was a good thing there were 5 adults to take turns watching him...
This is Donald from PO where I worked. We had a Cinco de Maya (sp.) party and we had a blast. I do miss those times but don't miss working. I still haven't figured out how to spell check on this Suzie. Maybe by next blog. And yes, I am having fun doing this also.
HAHAHA! Mason donated all the hats I could talk him out of to other golfers. It uuasn't easy for him. What a surprise to go the uueb site selling our AZ house and discover that, after all that, he left the ones he couldn't part with in the closet. Not to feel sorry for him. The agent mailed them.

This is Christian Lopez. He graduated from St. Lawrence University where he played football. He started dating a girl from Watertown. He graduated and moved closer to his hometown near the city and worked at Verizon Wireless. His girlfriend bought him Yankees tickets for his birthday and he brought his dad. As luck would have it.. he caught Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit.. which happened to be a home run.
The surprising thing in this story is that he GAVE the ball back to Jeter. He could have sold the ball for $$$$$$$$$$$$ and, instead, he became New York's sweetheart for giving it back to him.
It has been argued that it was a dumb decision... but he got a GREAT job at Modell's and different organizations FLOODED him with gifts.. including paying off his student loans and BOX seats with the Yankees!
A week later... HE WALKS into the Boathouse in Sackets Harbor! It was his girlfriend's birthday and he was up visiting her. 2 things to see in this picture: He is making the number 3 in the picture (in my hair)... and someone noted that it looks like I am going to pinch his nipple. HA!

Ha, fooling Brenda. She will be looking at her list thinking "what, washer?" I am asking for advice. Old washer broke. Getting new washer. Not getting front loader or spending $1000. What I did want to know is this, I have heard pros and cons about top loader HE washer. Anybody want to help?

I think that was some sort of sugar on the puss. He fell asleep in the7th inning (not before he irritated most everyone there.) In his defense, he was only three and I probably wouldn't have lasted that long, falling asleep or irritating everyone.

We stumbled onto this cool Motel on the way to the petrified forest and the painted desert. These cars have been here for a very long time. I don't know if you can tell, but some of them even have flat tires.
And yes, one of these pictures was posted by another blogger only four days ago.
