Hello everyone. I did the Tunnel to Towers race this morning. Odd running in a tunnel.

This is the Battery Tunnel which runs under the East River connecting Brooklyn & Manhattan.

Good morning Kitty, Paul, and all.  Nice pictures Paul, I never jogged in a tunnel in all those years.

We got the pool closed and everything stored away for another year.  Put the pool in 33 years ago.

It's sad to see another season gone but nice to have the project done. 

Worked on the big beam antenna a little yesterday but didn't take the rotor out and install it.  I will

do it when I can get everything upright so rain doesn't get to the sides of it.  The little nylon rope I

have will work for this antenna.  I have a 1/2" double dacron rope ordered for the two trees I need

to take down here and especially the huge tree I have to take down in PA.  Those are much higher

and much more dangerous than this antenna.

Went out and picked up couple things yesterday and picked up a new prescription for thyroid that's

a lower dose again.  I love it when I get healthier and my body improves with this thyroid, aneurysm

shrinking, cholesterol dropping, and blood pressure dropping.  I have to diet and exercise for diabetes

and it's nice to get other advantages.  Not inhaling the poison smoke helps too.

September is disappearing.  Wife is getting all the appointments to have cataracts fixed.  She is paying

$6k out of pocket for enhanced laser surgery.  We aren't to sure about that but the only person she

knows that went to him get the enhanced.  Her parents that got the standard are having problems with

their corrected eyes.  All very confusing and expensive.  Also, she had lasic surgery done years ago so she

could see close up and distant without glasses and they're saying the standard surgery might not keep that

working.  That was all out of pocket, $1700. 

Glad everyone is doing well, doing well here also.  One teen grandson is staying for a couple days, he went

to the hamfest with me.

Hi Ernie, Paul, Kitty and all ~

A bit of trouble this a.m. posting.

Paul ~ great pictures.  How neat that you ran in a tunnel......wasn't it quite warm to do that?   I'm a bit claustrophobic, so that wouldn't work for me....LOL   

Loved the table decorations, Ernie.  My condo is also decorated.  I bought a mum plant and a small pumpkin for outside.  I also have an antique corn holder on the front door.... That's about it for me this year.

Perhaps, start to cut down the perennial beds.  

Love to all.  Kitty....have you been posting?   When will your leaves turn?

We plan a trip to HHI mid October.  I hope we see the change of the season in route down.

Hi Kitty ~

What have you been up to of late?   Doing any painting?

I started a yoga class each Wednesday late morning and also visit the gym.  Now, if the extra COVID lbs. would disappear??

Chilly here.....I love Fall but I do not love what comes after it.

A trip to HHI in the making for mid-October.  Then, Longboat Key in February.  Something to look forward to......would spend January, February, March in the South if I had my way.

Hi all,

It was decent weather outside for shorts and a t-shirt. Other than drizzle the rain stayed away. But yes, Susan, a bit warm in the tunnel with so many people crowded in. Many of the firemen ran with their gear so they must have been hot. My legs are sore. 

I saw a dozen 'kids' (twenty somethings) running with their father's way too big fire coat. Picture of their dad on the back, with 'end of shift 09/01/11'. Really sad.

Dear Paul,

I agree ~ very sad.  Lest we forget ~ I worry about that.......  Who knows what this crazy Putin is up too.  Crazy enough to start a nuclear war??

Sunny now and working outside with my flowers.  My therapy and my enjoyment.
