Oct 6, 2017 - First Friday

Saugerties started having a village celebration every first Friday of the month two years ago and I was lucky enough to be here to see what the town does. Phyllis went with me to have dinner and visit stores and listen to music. We did just that and met Tommy Sperl and his wife at Stella's, where we had decided to have dinner. Good timing! It was very good to meet up with him and have a chance for us to get to know each other a bit. Next year will be our 50th class reunion, so it is good to get to know some of my classmates! After dinner,...

May 11, 2016 - First Mothers, then Sisters

Maybe it was just Mother’s Day, but it was becoming Sister’s Week as we went from Janet’s to seeing Buzz’s sister, Linda, near her home outside of Kingston, NY. Like my sister, Linda is still working. She is a substitute school nurse and wishes she had chosen this area of nursing years ago as she really loves being with the kids. If only we could all find our calling in life at an early age…. We went down to the Kingston waterfront to a great little restaurant on an estuary of the Hudson River for dinner, and were able to catch up on the...

Oct 1, 2014 - visit with Mom and Dot

I had a very nice couple of weeks visiting my Mom, my youngest sister and brother-in-law, and my nephew and his girlfriend. Dot even took a couple of days off of work to spend with me. We hiked and walked the loop over the bridges in Poughkeepsie. I did a little painting and yard work. And, Mom bought a pair of parakeets before I left!

Jun 18, 2014 - The Saugerties Lighthouse

Our next stop on our lighthouse tour was the Saugerties Lighthouse. You have to really want to find this lighthouse and the directions we had were sketchy but after some wandering around, we found a small parking lot where a couple cars were parked. There was a large sign that identified the path to the lighthouse. We parked the truck and started the short half-mile hike to the lighthouse. This was my first official hike since my knee surgery in January. It was a nice little hike as it was pretty level walking. There were some muddy spots...

Sep 14, 2013 - RVW Rally by NEN

Pat Sweeting and Sherri Algiers(sp?) put on a great rally for the Northeast Network that was attended by over 70 women and I actually knew quite a few of them! I went on the road trip to the Walkway over the Hudson - a walking bridge linking Highland and Poughkeepsie. We saw the Clearwater sloop which was filled with family - what a great day on and over the Hudson! Later, some of us tie-dyed shirts and made beaded key chains. The potluck dinner was great with many choices of foods. Each table had a name of a singer/group that played at the...

Aug 1, 2013 - The Catskills

We drove a 105 miles south on highway 87, New York Turnpike, to town of Saugerties, NY. Thought we would take a break from the narrow curvy back roads. Besides it was suppose to rain. We arrived at our site and set up in time for it to start raining. When we were checking reviews on campgrounds, some in the area did not sound good or were full. We found only 1 review for Blue Mountain CG. and it said it was like camping in a nice ladies backyard. We have camp in a few of those, so we decided to try it. It is a nice small CG with mostly...

May 11, 2013 - Family Weekend

After getting settled and ready to start work on Monday, I drove the 2 hours to Mom’s house on Friday afternoon. Dot, David, and Jenn came over after their workday ended and we had pizza and a nice visit in the evening. My cousin, Natalie and her husband, Steve, hosted her 50th birthday party on Saturday afternoon at a firehouse in Ulster. I think they intended for the party to be in the pavilion, but the weather didn’t cooperate, so we gathered in the meeting room inside. Cousins and their spouses came as well as Mom, Aunt Ina and Earl,...

The Great Escape

May 26, 2011 - Rip Van Winkle Campground

Today was a nice sunny day finally, so I decided to take pictures of parts of the campground before all the people came for the weekend. All the sites are in the woods so everyone gets shade. About half the campground is taken by seasonal campers, a few have only water and electric, about 20 are full hookups, including cable, and another 20 are tent sites. There are 4 group sites so that multiple families can camp together. 8 of the 20 tent sites are reserved for couples only! There are alot of amenities here, like a heated pool, a rec room...

May 6, 2011 - visit from Aunt & Uncle

Well, we're home and it's been a week of starting work at the campground for me, cleaning up the yard for Mom and Dolores, and regular work for Dot. But on this Friday afternoon, Aunt Ina and Uncle Earl drove up in Ina's new car accompanied by their granddaughter, Lori - Sue's oldest. Dolores served lunch from foods she made during the week - Quicke Lorraine, beef stroganoff, green salad, and fruit salad! Uncle Earl Kimble (Mom and Ina's brother) also came over for lunch in his new Honda civic hybrid. He has a robust laugh like Uncle Welly...

Jul 5, 2010 - Celebrating the country's birthday

After work on the 4th, I drove to my sister's house to spend a couple of days and brought my kayak. A heat wave started up at that time, so we were finding shade in her yard wherever we could, moving around during the afternoon. Dot & I went kayaking in the evening as it was getting cooler, and decided to go out again in the morning. We went up the creek with our paddles (chuckle here)as far as we could, then docked and walked over the rocks until the creek again opened up into another section good for boating and swimming. If only we were...

Summer in New York

Jul 2, 2010 - In the Catskills again, with Cooperstown

We left our campsite at Saugerties and headed north through the state. We passed through Woodstock, which is a beautiful little town, and saw that there are certainly lots of folksy, artsy, musical people left around from the 60s and 70s in the area. The Catskills area is certainly very scenic, and as you move out of the mountains you come into lots of farming country. We headed into Cooperstown, which is the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The museum was very interesting (OK, some parts more than others) and we spent...
