Oh, for the warmer times

I like that patio.

The empty boat slips in the Onondaga Lake Marina isn’t the only place I walk past in Liverpool that makes me think of warmer times.

Yes, I like eating on the patio of the Retreat come spring and summer.

Nicely decorated.

They do the best they can to make it look good in winter for those spectating.

    • I lived in the DC area for six years, and appreciated the month of better weather on each end of spring and fall, if you know what I mean, ladysighs. When I moved back to New York I had to get used to the longer winter season all over again.

      • My eight year stay was over 50 years ago. We probably have very different views of the area. I lived in a high rise called Southern Towers. I can’t remember the fun parties but I know there were a few. 🙂


      • My stay was 40-plus years ago. I moved down to finish my college studies and stayed to work my first four years in the newspaper biz, ladysighs. I worked in the Washington Post office for a short and memorable (for me at least) bit but that came after the famed Watergate years. I did meet Ben Bradlee … he creeped up next to me one hectic night when I had my feet up on a desk during a minute’s break, watching a basketball game on a TV in the sports department and he asked me what the score was. And I did meet Katherine Graham. She got in the elevator the same time as me once and looked sideways out of her eyes at the college student/part-timer riding up to start his nobody-else-wants-it Sunday morning shift in the sports department. Anyway, thanks for allowing me to think back to that.
