Completed in 1909, and located on Madison Ave, NYC, the Metropolitan Life Tower was the tallest building in the world until 1913. Elements of a few of its intriguing designs were photographed by me a few years ago from nearby Madison Park. My son Steve and I, with several hundred people, were enjoying a wonderful concert there with singer/songwriter Lucy Kaplanski …until the in-ground watering sprinklers popped up and activated, in some cases under people’s blankets.
Finally! a clear morning, …and there it was! Thank You to my neighbor for providing the roof feature, although they don’t know about it yet. And Thank You to my patient wife for letting me back in the little upstairs deck door after I locked myself out!

Tooling around Florida after the wedding, (see previous post here) the two of us would spend some time on St. Petersburg Beach…
Then, visiting friends, and eating out on Long Boat Key, and Punta Gorda…
And then, two nights inside Disney World, doing the entire day in between within Epcot, each of us walking about 22,000 steps (about 10 miles – 16 km!)
The last post in this series will cover our rainy drive back to New Jersey.

We’ve been busy cleaning out our attic, including boxes and boxes of old high school and college workbooks and paraphernalia. Lurking in the margins and edges of these otherwise “academic” journals are the innermost and most provocative thoughts and revelations of higher education …the DOODLES!
The Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Woodstock, Social Pressures and Change – Doodles.

25 years ago this week, in 1993, we came across this guy at the Sagamore Resort above Lake George, New York. We were sledding and cross-country skiing (or at least trying,) and HE….was apparently frozen stiff!
The wind-chill temperature on the mountain above Lake George was 0 (F,) (-18C.)!
As always, click on the image for a closer look and if you see his golf ball, contact The Samaore Resort, Bolton Landing, N.Y. Comments are encouraged…
