I am too tired to write much tonight as we spent the late afternoon and evening at a local fair put on by the Sons of Italy. It was a family affair that had something for all ages. I really enjoyed the entertainment by a local singing group who seem to have been together for quite some time. They were really good and put on a terrific show featuring the songs of the late 50's. For a bunch of old guys they could still sing and bring back the memories.
I am really worn out from being outside and standing most of the time except for when we ate and the short time I sat and listened to the music. I haven't been to anything like this for a long time and was sort of wondering how I would take several hours of it, but it turned out to be a fine evening. I think the fair runs again tomorrow, with fireworks in the evening. I probably will beg out though.
Wouldn't you know it, I spent $80 on the laptop charger Friday morning. Of course, my original charger arrived in the mail on Friday afternoon, so I repackaged the new one as best I could and will return it tomorrow. Best Buy will likely charge me a restocking fee, but maybe I'll get lucky. The motel didn't charge me for the mailing.
The boys are still constantly wanting to be in the truck, especially since they discovered the fun of honking the horn - loud and long. I'll have to be careful when I drive it again as I know some of the buttons on the dashboard have been pushed. My granddaughters really wear me out, but the boys do it more quickly. They are physical and intense, and do everything with gusto!
Maybe I'll get around to writing about the last part of my trip tomorrow. I still feel like sleeping most of the day, which is not at all natural. I just hope some good days are ahead.
I've decided I want to go into the city and will ride the train in one of these days. I have never been to the art museum and also want to visit the NYC Public Library. Maybe I can have lunch with my niece - no shortage of good eateries in New York. I hope both she and my granddaughter (Ara) will be here for Joshua's birthday party next weekend. It will be so good to see them again as being around them has always seemed to energize me.
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN!!!
