The park has a center with lots of turtles, fish and bugs. It also has a very nice playground.
The Poe Museum was more for us adults, with terrific 19th century history and literature on display.
Also, Joe wore this shirt today.
After five years of encouragement from parents, grandparents, teachers and therapists, Joe has started to shovel his own food in.
That’s my boy!
Joe spent some time last weekend at the annual Arc of Virginia Convention.
That boy can work a room.
First on the dance floor.
How you doing?
How’s everyone on drinks?
Can I get your number?
Joe and I made a trip north to visit his grandparents last weekend. We had great hosts, ideal weather and lots of local flavor. It was perfect.
We went to the Glenn Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport. A Hammondsport native, Curtiss is one of the most important men in early aviation.
We also went to Prattsburgh’s summer festival, where we listened to some good live music and marveled at the massive tractor show. Grandpa took this great photo.
Speaking of Grandpa, he’s really good at his job.
On the way home we stopped to pay respect to a very important place. Avoca Central School – K-6 downstairs, 7-12 upstairs.
My favorite view – West Creek valley in Wheeler from the top of the hill. I grew up at the bottom of this dirt road.
