Independence Day

We're Baaaack! We finally have internet hookup, and we're getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July here in Caroga Lake. The weather is crummy and it is raining. We have been working all week on unpacking and adjusting to life upstate. It is a different pace here, and we are learning patience. We are typical Long Islanders - MOVE IT! MOVE IT! MOVE IT! Here, things move at a slower and less urgent time schedule. Tomorrow is OK. Later is better than early. And no one arrives when they say they will. A few hours, here or there, doesn't much matter. I like this. I can get used to this. This is how I have been operating for years. I was just in the wrong place.
Happy 4th of July. Thank a vet. We owe a huge debt.
