Sep 26, 2011 - Double Wedding on Lake Gerry!
Very good friends of mine decided to get married after 45 years together! Their close friends from Florida (and friends of mine) came up for a tournament in Rochester and had been thinking about getting married in New York. So, Marilyn did a lot to orchestrate having a double wedding at their home! Very few people knew Cindy & Nancy, but by the end of the day, everyone got to know everyone else. People gave them cards and presents also, so they ended up feeling very comfortable here. Just a testament to the quality of friends that Chic &...Jump to full entry
Aug 20, 2011 - friends on the west side of the Catskills
On Thursday, I trekked on over the Catskills to see some dear friends. I stopped at a few places on the way to find some letterboxes and that was fun.

This was the weekend called "Lake Gerry Days" where the neighbors around the lake gather and have fun together. I attended a good breakfast on Saturday morning and learned about the boat parade to occur...Jump to full entry
May 30, 2010 - Memorial Day picnic
I spent a glorious day with friends (some new ones too) at the home of Chic and Marilyn on Gerry Lake. I forgot to bring my camera! But Linda saved the day and took pictures and then sent them to me! As you can see, we enjoyed the lake, played ladderball, had a wine-tasting event, and ate lots of food! Only wish I had a picture of Linda to show here!Jump to full entry
Aug 28, 2008 - visiting friends in Oxford, NY
On Tuesday, the 26th, I got word that my insurance company (GMAC) will cover the estimate ($1322) for repairing the front body mounts of my motorhome, less my $500 deductible. SO, the repair shop started working on it after their lunch break and I packed and went to Chic and Marilyn's house in Oxford - south of Oneonta. While visiting, we rowed on their little lake (there are about a dozen homes around this lake with exclusive rights to it) soaking up the afternoon sun. I was treated to excellent meals consisting of stuffed green peppers,...Jump to full entry
