Just some odds & ends of items to catch up on. Kathryn, Eric and Linda returned from a mini-vacation celebrating the end of Kathryn’s school term. They went to Rochester & Buffalo seeing Niagara Falls, the Butterfly Museum, zoo and Aquarium. I stayed home, worked, had an aborted canoe trip and mowed the lawn. Our canoe trip was aborted due to a damaged brake line. In finding a garage to tow and repair my truck we stumbled into a place in Gloversville, Nethaway & Sons, run by someone who recognized my name. It turns out my father had bought their farm in 1955 – where I grew up from age 2-13. We reminisced about the farm and items on (large mulberry tree, barns, hills and ponds) as he lived there during his early years as well.
Kathryn had to take the dog to the vet giving her an opportunity to check his weight again – 105 lbs.
