Apr 15, 2017 - Grassy Waters Preserve

Easter and Greek Easter fall on the same day this year, so there just had to be a gathering at Gette & Rose's house. I went to the East Coast on Friday night and the three of us visited this nearby preserve on Saturday. None of us had seen an alligator do a dance before but we witnessed it today! It is mating season for the gators. We didn't find a possible mate for this alligator, but she must have been nearby! On Sunday, Laurie and Jeannie came up, as well as Deb & Theresa, and two other friends of Gette's and we had a great visit and...

Dec 25, 2015 - Christmas in Palm Beach Gardens

I drove straight East to Palm Beach Gardens on Christmas Eve and stayed until Dec. 28th so that I could spend time with Gette and Rosemary. On Christmas Day, Jeanne & Laurie came up to spend two days, as it was Laurie's weekend. We had a great time. I rode my bike for 18 miles in one outing! Isn't Quinn a beautiful dog? She is very friendly and well behaved.

Dec 24, 2014 - Christmas in Palm Beach Gardens

Christmas Eve, we went out to a very fancy restaurant called the City Cafe, so I didn't expect such a high class place. I ordered eggplant parmesan and loved it. On Christmas Day, we went for a 10 mile bike ride - nothing to those two but substantial for me! We ate a nice salad with chicken slices in it for dinner. The day after Christmas, I went for my hour massage that I got as a gift and it was relaxing but sometimes painful. I have a lot of knots and tight muscles in my neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and back! whew! On the 27th, we went...

Mar 27, 2013 - Staying in Palm Beach Gardens

I am staying at Gette & Rosemary's house taking care of their dogs while they vacation in Ecuador and the galapagos Islands! They live in the complex that hosts the Honda Classic Golf Tournament! I don't think I ever took pictures of their house and since Quinn is a new member of the family, I need to include her too! I know I have pics of Java, but you will see her in these pictures also. Quinn is still a puppy and is very lively. Java is getting older and is not as fast to run around anymore. But they are both good dogs and love to go on...

Jan 8, 2013 - Florida Farewells

It's so great that most trips from SF to Santiago have stopovers in Miami. We scheduled a multi-day layover so we could spend some time with family. Alan's sister and her family (Robin and Jon and the boys Jesse, and Daniel) were visiting his folks (Harvey and Char) at PGA, so we overlapped and got to see them all. Mom loved the feeling of the crazy busy house like the old days back growing up in New Rochelle, NY. But after all the traffic and recent visits from our other siblings I think they were ready for some peace and quiet. Not to...

Dec 31, 2012 - 2012 to 2013

For this trip east, I went to stay with Gette and Rose and meet Quinn while not forgetting Java. Quinn is the same size as Java but is black and white and real cute. She took to me quite quickly but still barked upon seeing me the next morning because she didn't expect to find me in her house! I had a great visit. On Sunday evening, we went to Duffy's for dinner and then I was treated to a good seat in the Kravis Center to see "The Jersey Boys" with them! What a good surprise - the musical was real fine and we had a great time together!...

Nov 3, 2012 - Early Thanksgiving

Because everyone is doing something away from each other this Thanksgiving, we gathered a few weeks early to enjoy each other's company and great food. Connie and Dann are caring for their son's dog while he is deployed in Afghanistan. They recently lost their own Lexi, a cocker spaniel, so this helps take away the loneliness in the house, I suppose. Who ever saw a dog that looks like that? And she loves people, especially women, but hates and wants to devour dogs. So I haven't met Gette & Rose's new dog, Quin yet and the 3 Bostons weren't...

Mar 25, 2012 - Weekend with the Girls from Palm Beach

On Friday, I drove up to see Gette & Rose, who now live in Palm Beach Gardens, right in the complex where the Honda Classic golf tournament is held every year! Gette was home, doing her homework when I got there and Rose was still at her job as a manager for the Florida Power & Light Company. they used to have 3 dogs, but now just have Java, a Dobeagle! Anyway, after taking Java for a walk and helping Gette organize her homework on the computer in class files, we went to a nail place and had a pedicure! Yes, me! It was a wierd experience,...

Aug 30, 2011 - Yellowstone Bear Attack

Hi everyone: I'm not sure if you remember but in one of our Yellowstone Entries we took a picture of the "Mary Mountain Trail" sign and one of the lakes that is situated on one of its Trailheads. We passed this trail at least three times during our 5 day visit to the Park this year and briefly talked about hiking it but it was 13 miles one way and we'd have no way to get back to our car other than to hike back - that's 26 miles in open country. Most hikers park one car at one end of the trail then drive around the Southern Loop Road to the...

Apr 4, 2010 - Greek Easter with my Florida family

On Saturday, Jeanne and I went up to the Gardens with the Bostons and found out that Gette & Rose had new acroutrements in their back yard! What fun to sit in the jacuzzi for a few minutes then jump into the unheated pool to cool off! Later, we rested at the table with a cool drink and good conversations. Laurie joined us when she got off of work. Gette managed to stay up until midnight and watched the Greek church service through her laptop! I went to church on Sunday with Gette & Rose, then had a great afternoon with the family. Dann,...

Feb 5, 2010 - Some of my favorite things

Gette and Rosemary are on a week long cruise and I am taking care of their dogs and watching the house for them. The air was too cool to even think about swimming in that pool and I couldn't bring myself to sit out in the yard most of the time! But I could pursue some letterboxes in the area and by doing that, I saw some wildlife and walked on new trails. When the girls got back, we went to one of the parks and found a couple of letterboxes, so that was fun for me anyway!
