"Batten down the hatches"

We have spent about an hour "preparing" for whatever  Irene decides to throw our way. All the hanging plants are inside the garage, the lawn chairs are put away, we bungee-corded ....I just made that word up.....the gas grill to the deck railing & brought in our flag.

I can't help but think it's a lot of drama on the weatherman's part as we are quite a ways inland but they just love to overdo everything!

I absolutely refused to go to the market & stock up on bread , milk & water like the rest of the people around here.

I was silly enough to go to Lowes to look at ceiling fans & couldn't believe all the crazy people buying generators & batteries!

I think we'll have some rain & wind tomorrow but not as much as they say!

See you on the flip side!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
