Here There and Everywhere....

Had to get crackin' this morning.  Many things on the agenda.

 After chores

I took a very quick shower and drove my car down to Northside for an inspection that ended up costing me just under $800.  It needed 4 new tires and a couple of other things.
Gary had followed me, and dropped me off at Grinds for a meeting that was supposed to be at Java (which was closed when Gary went down for coffee).  Anyway, the three people never showed up and I managed to get in touch with Hanny, who said they were at Java after all.  Pete opened late and now I was at the wrong place with 20 pounds of rhubarb that I had brought for her!!!!
I ended up walking over, which did not thrill me.
On the way I grabbed a couple shots of the canal.

 I left the meeting at 10:15 and was picked up by one of my students, who was on her way to class at my studio.
 Pam brought us a treat.  Homemade lemon cake topped with strawberries.
What a nice surprise.

 I was able to pick up my car around 2:30 and drove around the corner to fill it up with gas.
Just as I approached the Welcome Center, two big boats were docking.

 At 4:15 Gary and I left for the Buffalo airport to pick up Ariana.
 Her flight actually got in a few minutes early.
 On the way home, we stopped in Batavia for dinner.
 Ariana ordered Tilapia/Mediterranean.
 Gary ordered a steak.  (I had their specialty - ribs).
 So this is what our dinners looked like after we finished.
Ha Ha!  I forgot to take pictures!!!

 We were outtathere by 7:15.
 Jenny and Finn arrived at the farm around 8:30 to pick up Ariana and took her down to see Coop.
 Finn has grown so much since last year!

The cousins will be spending a lot of time together for the next two weeks.
Night all.

  2. Hi Lori, Thanks for the visit! Not shooting as much these days, less to shoot! Stay cool. Yeah, the next three days are a "pray for weight loss to achieve less body heat days"!

  3. So nice that Ariana will be staying for a while. The cousins should have lots of fun. Stay cool! Hot and humid here too. 90's.
