Five Rivers

video I took this video about 2 weeks ago, but I haven't posted any video to my blog because it wasn't working for the longest time...guess it's working now. I'll start doing more video for sure.

Thatcher Park trail

Delmar Reformed Church

I was out to garage sales early this morning, and they had quite a bit at this church. I picked up a few things including a book that is the sequel to one that I just finished, An Irish Country Village by Patrick Taylor.

bagpipes at Beffs - Colonie

My friend Karen and I went to the local pub, and they were having a Guinness tasting. The bagpipes were for ambience I suppose. I cannot resist a man in a kilt. Even as the sun went down, the evening air remained warm.

Flowers for Administrative Professionals Day

My friend Amy, who works in Teacher Development, gave me these beautiful flowers. I help her out from time to time and this was her way of saying "thank you." Lucky me!

Spring in downtown Albany

What a beautiful beginning to a great weekend..it's going to be in the 80's all weekend, sunny and just wonderful through Tuesday. As you can see, all the trees are budding with life.

Sleepy Delmar Post Office

It's a small town post office for sure, with beautiful old woodwork.

Moving Day

My daughter Jennifer is moving today...her first apartment. She's absolutely thrilled to be out on her own. I helped her unpack some boxes and set up the kitchen. As of today, I'm an empty nester! Not really sure how I feel about that, but I'll adjust.

bill windows is owner

Had to take this picture to document an accident...a colleague of mine tripped and fell on this raised sidewalk. Two days before her retirement no less. She's pretty banged up, but a real trooper, because she came in and we're celebrating her retirement at a local steak house this afternoon.

Canada goose

This little guy, all alone in the pond, was bobbing his head for food.

Sunfish Pond

I really liked the way the fallen tree hugged the water's edge.
