A beautiful day...

of boating on Lake Champlain with Dottie's sister Jane and her husband. We were out about 4 hours; it was pure bliss!

Yesterday we made it in about 5AM; I had driven the whole 20 hours (I don't get to drive her Malibu very often, and loved every minute). I did finally check the mileage on the Syracuse to Albany part of the New York Thruway; it was getting 37.4. It's average since it was new is 35 according to the dash display...

After we got back we shopped for the surprise 25th anniversary party for Jane and Ed that's tomorrow; guess what chicken is on the menu, lol!

Off to bed...miss you all!

Sounds lovely to be boating all day. I would have to have a fishing pole with me though! No other vacation on earth is as fun as fishing is to me! Anytime, anywhere.

Glad you go to drive the Malibu and loved every minute, since you drove for so long!

Enjoy the rest of the trip Alan!

Love you big brother!
