special occasions at Canali's
Restaurant since 1985.

We were welcomed back by the staff.  "Our table" was set and waiting for us.

The Chianti goes wonderfully

During our leisurely dinner, Eric and I made plans for our next thirty-seven years together.

Thank you, Jerry, for our lovely Anniversary dinner.

Cruising Lake George on the Adirondac

Eric & the Adirondac
in the background.

He bought a Groupon for a cruise.  We are using it on our 37th Anniversary.

The Adirondac is moored
next to a Parasail

The Union Jack flag flies at
the front of the Adirondac.

The Captain told me that it was
common practice Naval practice
to cut frayed stripes off the U.S.
flag & fly the field of stars at
the front of a ship.

A Shamrock decorates
the ship's smokestack.

The Stars & Stripes flies
at the back of the ship.

The Horicon is moored

Parasailing is very popular
on Lake George.

Walking Around Jerry's Neighborhood in Rotterdam, New York

I got into the habit of walking early in the day in Missouri.... That state is hot in the summer.  

Walking around Jerry's neighborhood, I notice a lot of changes....

More houses,,,

....have solar panels.

The first political sign
of the season.

James Bradshaw is running
for Rotterdam Town

This sign advertises

This house has a beautiful
new concrete driveway.

Under construction in May...

Occupied in August.

Just up the street is a
cleared lot & a freshly
dug basement.

I admire this 1967 Chevrolet
neighbor's driveway.

The thin strip of land between
two driveways is a garden.

This car carrier is tucked in
at the edge of an unnamed
store's parking lot.

I walked by at 7:20 am, and I think the drive overnighted here.  He or she probably left before the store opened at 8:00 am.

The townhouses at the end of
Edgewood Avenue on a
sleepy Sunday morning.

The driveways are full of cars with overflow parked on the street.

                                                      Somethings haven't changed....

This house remains
