Very busy weekend: on Saturday, I drove up to Cobleskill to go to my friend Paula’s annual pig roast. It took me over 3 hours to get there; I did make a few stops. I was having a really nice time seeing people I have not seen in a few months. When it started to rain, we were protected by two really nice carport tents.

Hello, hope you are all having a great summer. I am trying to keep busy. I’m enjoying my concerts at Bethel Woods. I went to see Carlos Santana last night; he is very talented and loud. I went to the psychic Alissa Smith at the Delaware Spirit Quest Expo on Saturday. She was amazing. She answered so many questions for me about Tommy’s death.
I went down to Queens to help my sister Maryanne celebrate her 64th birthday on Monday July 31st. She has a hard time on her birthday—she always celebrated it with our parents. My Dad and Mom were both born on the same day, August 1. I wanted to do something special for her, but no planes, trains or packing.
What a busy, great, fun, weekend I had. On Friday night went to Bethel Woods with Pastor Phyllis Haynes to see Cindi Lauper and Rod Stewart. Everything was great till the skies opened up, and we ran under the pavilion for cover. We got drenched anyway. I had a puddle in my bra.
It’s so funny how so many people know who I am and I do not know them. I was at a pig roast at Lake Huntington Service Station over the week end—I cannot remember their names, but this one guy comes up to me and says, “Hi, Eileen.” I give myself a few seconds till something rings a bell. Nope, nothing.
Just got back from Florida again. This time I went down to buy a house in Winter Garden, right by Disney World. I was going to see the house on Thursday the 6th, sign the contract and have the inspection. Little did I know that they sold the house from under me on Wednesday.
Hello, everyone, hope all is well. The weather has been so nice this weekend—okay, we did have that rainstorm on Saturday. I have been out and about today—I stopped by Genco's Fire House, Paul and Sharon have so many nice old antiques to sell you.
The Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) has two upcoming events. Signups for both of these will be held on July 5 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the town hall.
There is no place like home. The traffic this weekend was nuts—it took me almost five hours to go down to queens on Friday and a little over four to come home on Sunday. A lot of people must be visiting their fathers. My dad is in heaven, 23 years this September.
I’ve been to Florida two times in the past three weeks. My first trip was to Fort Meyers to hang out with my oldest friend Katie. We always try to do something together; as of this year it’s been 52 years.
