Wintering our second fig tree

Yes, there’s a tree under there. We decided this fig tree is staying inside this winter. After last year’s special delivery from friend John didn’t make it through winter one in our shed, my dear wife Karen and I thought our second downstairs bedroom was the likely choice for the replacement tree that we nurtured…

Coming soon to our basement

Our choices. If it’s not one thing it’s another. When we moved in to this house we love, we had no idea the pretty cool washer and dryer in the basement were … pretty old already. So the dryer started making a funny noise these handful-plus years later. The kind repair guy informed us that…

I do believe that’s a new ‘S’

Signature Syracuse. You know I have to take a good look around the outside of NBT Bank Stadium during the annual Syracuse Mets garage sale morning. This time around, I believe they’ve already put up a new big ‘S’ on the right-field brick portion of the ballpark. I don’t recall it from the past season,…

Looks as if they can still play

Didn’t we just see a game? Of course I had to take a good look out at the playing field during the annual Syracuse Mets garage sale morning. The 2022 season offered many good times to our family. And we’re already looking forward to fine games to come in 2023.

Instead of placing the tables full of gear-and-such on the concourse, they set the sale up inside the Metropolitan Club. That set up a mad dash of fans to look and buy. Holy shirt! The real jerseys pulled in lots of people.…

Off season sale for the Syracuse Mets

Lining up in November. Syracuse Mets fans lined up way before the announced 9 a.m. opening for Saturday’s annual Syracuse Mets garage sale. It was moving day for daughter Elisabeth and fiance George. My dear wife Karen was getting ready to take the drive out to their apartment in Oneida. I was sworn in to…

Pancakes bigger than my head

Huge! My friend Edina told me at the library that she and husband Adem had discovered a fantastic new local place for breakfast. Plain looking out front. You gotta go to Just 1 Bite, she declared, on North Main in North Syracuse. Nice inside. My dear wife Karen and I liked the looks of it…

Congratulations, Elisabeth and George Three

Happy together. Closing happened. The big family came together over the weekend to move furniture and boxes. Many boxes. Elisabeth and George Three are now in their first house together. Fantastic yard, too. Lovely house, big grounds. And it’s only 1.1 miles from our place. We think it’s marvelous. Congratulations, terrific daughter and fantastic fiancé.…
