Dairy, it’s 2:13a.m. monday night/tuesday morning. We jest gotted back from New York. Here’s how it went.
THURSDAY: I got off work thursday morning at 5:00 a.m. I got a quick shower and we left at 5:30. We stayed in Gettysburg Penn. Thursday night. We visited Gettysburg National Military Park and went to a covered bridge(I love covered bridges for some reason).
FRIDAY: Dairy, we got up played putt-putt, and chess with a “giant chess set”(the pieces were about 2-3 feet tall. Jamie beat me twice. We then went to Gettysburg National Cemetery. It was very moving seeing all the gravesites of people who are willing to give their lives for what they beleive in. Then we drove to Cooperstown New York. It rained just before we entered New York and we drove into New York looking at beautiful rainbow that went from a mountain on the right side of us to a mountain on the left side. We then drove under the rainbow, it was pretty cool.
SATURDAY: Dairy, it was Jamie’s 16 birthday and we took him to The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. We spent about 2 hours there and then went and ate and played laser tag. Then back to the Baseball Hall of Fame for 2-3 hours. Then we left for dinner and putt-putt and more laser tag. The kids went swimming also.
SUNDAY: DAiry, it was back to the Baseball Hall of Fame for several hours. Then we went to Glimmerglass State Park on Lake Otsego. This was the setting for James Fenimore Cooper’s book Deerslayer, one of my favorites. We also saw the oldest known covered bridge in the country(I love covered bridges for some reason). Then we explored the country side; we saw some homes of Amish people, groundhogs, deer, wild turkey, and Holstein Dairy cows.
MONDAY: Dairy, we got up and drove most all day and got home tonight. We had planned on staying somewhere about halfway but we decided to come on in. I was hoping to stop off and see some covered bridges(I love covered bridges for some reason) in Pennsylvania but there weren’t any near the route we took.
DAiry, my boy is 16 and I just hope we are doing a proper job of preparing him for his adult life. I know his neurological problems have made him immature for his age but I sure hope I’ve done the right things for him. I sure do love that boy, DAiry.
Dairy, I’ll never forget what Lynn gave me for my first father’s day. She gave me a son. Yeah, my boy was born on father’s day, that was pretty cool. We was sort of worried about whether he would like the Hall of Fame or not, but I think he really loved it. I thought he was gonna read every plaque with every exhibit and he almost did. I think the thing we enjoyed best was a video of Abbot and Costella doing the “WHO’S ON FIRST” routine. It was a lot longer than I thought it was. We watched it over and over and laughed the whole time. NOw Jamie wants to find some Abott and Costella movies.
DAiry, I guess that’s about all I have to say for now, I’ll talk at you later.
PSALM 149:4 FOR THE LORD TAKETH PLEASURE IN HIS PEOPLE; HE WILL BEAUTIFY THE MEEK WITH SALVATION.
