I’m In Love, or Now I See What the Big Deal is About a BT

I’m in love.  With something that I’ve only seen once.  And now I understand Mary’s and Julie’s love of Boston Terriers.  I saw my cousin Kevin on Saturday (that’s another story for another day) and met his dog Woof (so named by Kevin’s young son).  I fell completely and madly in love.  This dog is the epitome of sweetness all wrapped up in the cutest package, down to the spots on his chest, tummy and legs.  He loves to get so close to everyone he meets.  And he gives lots of kisses.

How can you refuse this precious face?

I couldn’t get a complete pic of all his spots, but trust me, they go down his chest and tummy and onto his legs.   Too cute!

And he’s not only cute, but he’s a guard dog, too! NOTE: He is only allowed up on the dashboard when the motor home is not moving! Actually, he’s not supposed to up there at all, but he does it when they’re not there.

Time Goes Flittin’ By

Since time goes flitting by so fast, I’ll give a quick run-down of my last two months, which doesn’t include everything, but you’ll get the idea.  When I have more time, I need to expound on some of the things we discovered.

Wherein we investigate for several days along the West Shore trail of Onondaga Lake, where there were resorts in the old days. More on this when I have time (haha).

The NYCRR used to run under the Erie Canal at this point, and since they were digging up the road, we had to investigate.

We went to the Central Square Railroad Museum, where they are redoing Syracuse Trolley Car #1036

Went swimming at Oneida Lake on Independence Day and almost drowned because the wind and waves were so high.  No pics.  Just glad to be alive.

Two CSX trains collide because somebody missed a signal. The train that got run into was already gone by the time I got there, leaving behind the very last part of it.

Attempted to listen to some music at Onondaga Park, but it was lousy.

OHA Museum reopened and it is totally wonderful now! This is one view of the new Gift Gallery, with shelving from Borders which closed in Carousel Mall earlier this year.

Went to Valley Field Days, but it was CROWDED, so didn’t get to ride my ride.

Drove down Butternut Street, which is all ripped up, and saw double trolley tracks.
