August 12, 2014 Pulaski, NY

We had to set the alarms to have an early start today.  Silvia even made us a hot breakfast.  After my shower I offered to help, but I had to turn on the light first.  We had a laugh about that, since she didn’t need the light.  We left their condo about 7:15 am to catch the train back to the US.  But first we walked about 3 blocks to the Fairmont Royal York Hotel across the street from the Union Station.  My brother, Don and wife Linda, were leaving there at 8:00 am on a bus tour to Niagara Falls and then a train across Canada to Vancouver.  We only found this out last Wednesday.  So we met in the lobby about 7:40 for about 15 minutes.  Small world.  Then we walked across the street to the train station to catch our train back to Niagara Falls, NY at 8:20 am.

We had to go through customs again when we arrived in Niagara Falls, NY.  We hopped back into our rental car, had lunch and drove to Pulaski, NY.  Lee and Susie Glenister live there.  Lee and Dave were room mates in the barracks while in the Air Force before Dave and I were married in 1977.  Once I arrived in Germany, we spent a lot of time with Lee and his new room mate, Rich Valent. The two of them went on a few road trips with us in Europe.  Rich and Lee came to Georgia, SD and MN to visit us in the 80’s before they each were married.  But the last time we saw each other was in 1985 in MN.  We had never met Susie or his 3 kids.  But we had exchanged Christmas cards for the last 35 years. 

We arrived about 4:00 and had a wonderful evening sharing stories and reminiscing over dinner at their home.
