that was then...

See the train swooshing by in this picture. That is how close my hotel room was to the railroad this weekend. This is taken from my window...



Ah well...It was clean and comfy and I didn't hear it between 12:30-5:00am, I must have slept through. For that I am grateful. We took a trip to Long Island for a family party. It was lovely!

We even took a quick trip to the beach Saturday morning.Here is the boardwalk along Long Beach, about 5 miles from where I spent the first 33 years of my life. This scene brings back memories of pushing the double stroller with my two little ones in tow (now 16.5 and 17.5). Oh, they were so cute! They got lots of attention, not just because they were so darn cute, but also because I suppose it was a strange sight to see such wee ones wearing two hearing aids each!
If I reach a bit further in my memory bank I can recall a wild and crazy 17 year old girl(me) running down to the water in her prom dress on prom night, with my friends not too far behind. It was on this very stretch of sand.

Oh the memories, I will treasure them always...
I hadn't been back there in quite a while, so it was a bit surreal, driving around the small town and seeing the strangely familiar sights.



It was nice to visit, but so good to be home...

Here are some random pictures taken in last weeks snow...





Have a great Monday!
I'm off to the dentist. Waaaa!! I'm such a baby about going to the dentist!

Your pictures are so clear and so interesting!! I did not know you spent 33 years in New York. I do enjoy going back to my hometown, and then I enjoy coming home even more. And guess what? I was at the dentist also today for a route canal...so much fun!!
