Summer is coming to an end



Caterpillars and Jethro .... I can't go anywhere in my yard without this cat.... He's a dirty old bad breath whiner... I'm not complaining.. I love him and he is such a love... I don't know what I'd do without him

Lions, Tigers and Bears.....

Last weekend we went to the Adirondack Animal Museum.  We've driven by a million times and never went in.  Cost $10 and there was no one else there.....40,000 square feet of stuffed animals, boars, lions, bears, cows, fish, coyote, moose, wolves, anything you can imagine 

Blue Mountain Lake, NY

Our favorite place to eat in NY

You will never be disapointed eating at this place, YUM! 

Mojito and Squirt guns?

My new neighbors have 3 dogs and who knows how many kids....They don't keep track of the dogs very well, I find them in my yard quite often and since Jethro is getting old , I am afraid he will not be able to get away from these dogs.... So I have a backup plan with the water blaster.  So far, I have not had to use it but I'm prepared.  BTW I don't care for the new neighbors... they have been there over 5 months and we have not even met.... not very social and they don't seem very pleasant.  this is the house that my old crazy neighbors used to live in, not much has changed, just new tenants, same old problems. 

Still friends after all these years

A few of the Hartland girls....we all grew up together.  This is just a handful of us, there are a bunch more and we are all still friends since gradeschool..  We may not see each other often but thanks to FB and an occasional get together we keep in touch

Adirondack NY Weekend

I have such trouble blogging from work so I'm sorry I just use my cell phone and the pictures are not such great quality.

This past weekend I went to our place in NY with my friend Teri.  We have been there a few times this year so far and spent vacation there again.  We've go the house for sale actually but it doesn't seem to be selling with the realtor so Ray and I decided I will try to sell it myself.  Teri and I spent a good amount of time cleaning and taking pictures which I will post at a later date.  Somehow I have to figure out a web page or marketing plan to get this house sold. 

We just don't use it like we used too.  The kids are all busy and we sold all the water toys we had so there isn't much to do.  Well I find plenty to do and just sitting my fanny down to read a book is just fine with me.

We have also found a lot of hiking trails that we never did before, probably because we were always at the lake.  My cousin owned a lakefront lot that we kept a dock and boat at but he sold it so that's another reason we got rid of the water toys.

Any how.... here are a few pics from Blue Mountain Lake and the Adirondack Animal Museum

Yep thats me!

A day at the beach




I have not been to the CT or RI beach ever in the winter.... How can that be in 45 years, I have not done this?  When I was younger, I spent a lot of time sitting on the beach.  My parents took us camping in RI all the time and we spent a lot of time playing in the ocean.  As a teenager and my early 20's I also spent a lot of time baking my skin to the point of a sunburn.  I was scolded yesterday at my annual checkup at the Dr for doing this and warned not to do it any more.  Guilty as charged..... I still sit in the sun at the NY house lake.  I do miss the ocean though and it was quite fun to go there when it was not crowded except for the gulls.
