Karma,...It can be Bad or Good!
Karma , It can be Bad or Good! If you try to "always" do the right thing, you will have "Good Karma"!....Enough Said. Well Gang it's been a while for me so it's time to Blog. Jen last week as you can see by her posts was down state helping out with a charity event , in Breezy Point, I on the other hand held down the Camp here in the ADK'S. The event was a two night show, Friday the 19th was the second night and I drove down to L.I. to drop off Ali to visit with her dad then off to Breezy Point to watch my Bride help make the show a success . Friday afternoon at 1:15 Pm I put the key into the truck ignition here in Caroga Lake, 8:45 PM I arrived in Breezy Point! The show was great , it appears that a lot of fun was had, and some money raised for the local church........(Good Karma). The after party at the BayHouse @ Breezy Point hosted a very nice Cast Party. Jen, Me and most of the cast spent the late night hours and some of the early morning hours on the BayHouse's rear deck which over looked Jamaica Bay ( Think that's it's name). The weather was great...I don't know what every ones been talking about, no rain there. Guess it's the good Karma. MaryEllen , the director of the show Allowed Jen and Me to use her Beach house . Just a very nice community and very much like what you might find at Fire Island. Most houses have no drive up parking( community gated parking area's) with just sidewalks infront of the houses.... the houses are very close together with it appearing that you could reach out and touch houses on the side of you. (See Jens posted pictures). We sorta planned on spending the next day at the beach but.......It rained that day. Not bad Karma.....It's good for the Garden!!!!! Even with the rain we had a fabulous time at the Beach House. Thanks again Jimmy & MaryEllen. Saturday Night we landed in Port Washington and spent some quality time with Jen's Brother Clint, later that day his friend Onnie arrive at the house for a Jam session , Onnie , Clint playing guitars and Jen singing. I took some Audio & Video with the camera, just gotta find it for a post. (And clear the audio & Video with Jen first before posting as some people like to make fun of her...You know who you are!!!!) Sunday was Fathers Day and we along with Brian and Nicole had a great brunch......Thanks Guys, Love Ya. Sunday night we pointed the two cars north and headed home, Me and Ali away just a few days, Jen away from the ADK's and our home......About 9 days. Jen told us that she had a great time and we believed her but I could tell that she was glad to get home. This week was quiet here , Garden doing good, all kinds of fresh produce making it's way out of the ground. 1st tomato was spotted this week, lettuce tasting great. Jen and I started working on her studio, painting and waterproofing the walls . We decided that the studio ceiling is going to be Rough Cut Pine boards , 3/4 inch by 12 inch wide. About 260 sqft needed, It will give her studio that Adirondack feeling that we are attempting to achieve. We decided that the best place to buy that planking for the ceiling would be from the Amish ,so off to the Amish Lumber Mill we drove . Dan (Amish Dan )has milled lumber for us in the past and was the same guy who cleared our pasture last fall. Dan has 14 children so before reaching the mill we stopped and picked up a few bags of candy for his children.....It makes them Happy and we feel good too......A Win - Win for us and them. I wish I could put up some pictures of his kids but we respect their wishes and don't take any identifiable pictures of them. Dan was out doing business so we placed our order with his oldest son and advised that he would past on our order to his father. It was later in the afternoon when we arrived at the farm / mill and his two older boys making ready the fishing poles ......it appears that they are allowed to do some fishing on Saturday. Heading down the road in Amish county we stopped at one of the local Amish selling breads , cakes and my new favorites , Cowboy cookies. Open only on Fridays these road side stands turn out some fabulous food.. We loaded up with a few items and headed back to the camp. As we headed home we came up on the place that we purchased the hickory front porch rockers and I asked Jen if she needed any thing there or wanted to look at was new in the Amish show room....She responded in the negative and as we drove by I spotted Eli and pointed him out (Gotta Be a Blog reader to know about Eli)..Jen seemed to want to stop but it was too Late..HEEE -HEEE ! Jen He is a Married man and I don't think you would like to dress in the Amish female clothing, You are just stuck with me. Well the camps starting to shape up, new front storm door which keeps the dogs from running out at will. It also is a full glass storm door, much light makes it into the kitchen as the front porch roof has limited sun from flowing in. Friday Night Jen & I made it down to the Glove Theater for a 6Pm showing of "Gone With The Wind" , 3 dollars to get in and see it on a large screen. Never seen it from start to end, 4 hr movie....it was great. Jen's been volunteering at the theater in an attempt to help it from closing it's doors. Next friday or the one after that Jen and I working the candy and pop corn counter on movie night to help out. Should be fun , it's a good cause and I get to see a free movie in between serving up counter goodies. Bailey seems to have lost the Balance of steroids in his system and much better. Daphne doing great but we noticed that she waddles very much like the porcupines we see from time to time. Jake same as ever, a little slower and has selective hearing when Jen speaks.....No wait, that's me. Just kidding I try and Listen...Need to keep that hearing aid in and batteries charged. Kind of tired so no pictures posted this time, way past my bed time. Keep the Good Karma coming, Always do the right thing, Help when you can, Get off that chair or couch, put the coffee cup down and get out there and put in some time, for a good cause. Til Next time Gang.......Jerry R.I.P., Charlies Angel & Michael
