I Remember Mama
Mom's birthday is July 13th, son John and I celebrated Mom's Birthday while on vacation in Cape Cod, MA. Even thou she passed in 1965, I still miss her so.
Paulina and I will be 75 next Spring, and we've now spent 37 years together. And today, we celebrate closing on our beloved home in the Skyline Country Club Estates 8 years ago. Now, we've had our home listed for sale and look forward to whatever comes next.
We also bought Paulina's Place in the Adirondacks in August 2015, which we'll be returning in August '19.
Early Days, the promise and the fulfillment!

We’ve now spent 37 years together, which is 1/2 of our lives ... I turned 74 on March 5th, and Paulina on April 4th .. and Spring has finally arrived! The first quarter of the year was colder and wetter than usual, but all that has produced an abundance of Spring Flowers.
For more about our remaining plans for 2019, checkout Ticket To Ride
As usual, we've been out and about enjoying life and times. As of April 4th, we've already produced 23 photo videos for our YouTube Playlist "2019, Doing it Better". This includes lots of photos of our home, family and adventures (especially in the Outback).
Our love of the great outdoors and photography has really produced and abundant crop of photos and videos.
Midnight At The Oasis
Now 74 on March 5, 2019, we spend most of our time at home with dining out on special occasions.
I created a fun show to include our 37th Anniversary of the day we met (March 28, 1982). This includes our day together at home as well as our romantic dinner out at a local French Restaurant.
Life has been, and continues to be, wonderful. I've enjoyed life and photography since I was 17. Photos have enabled me to do a journal of my life and times.
My website includes lots of photos and videos of our family, homes and friends over many, many years. Frankly, I'm proud of it all .. Family, Friends and all of our many blessings
Anyone interested in seeing what it's all been about can view our web pages. The pages showcase it all, so I don't need to showcase it all again.
Now in our Golden Years, we have learned what we like and try to make it better every day.
Although I won't be doing a monthly Status Update, I will continue to take photos and videos of our special events and exploits. I've already begun a new Playlist on YouTube to include our ongoing times. So, you can view our photo journals to keep up with our life and times.
Our Winter, which is more like early Spring begins about the 1st of January and lasts about 3 weeks. Then, it's time to have fun in the sun.

Memories of Yesterday
We relocated to Tucson from Manhattan on October 1, 1999. And, we begin our 20th year on October 1st.
Like many others are often heard to say .. "Where did the time go?" Well, time passes when you're having fun.
All of it has been an adventure, but in many ways the last few years have been especially interesting. Come Thanksgiving, we'll have moved into our home 7 years! Come August, we'll have bought our home in the Adirondacks 4 years! And, perhaps the most interesting, come November we also begin our 20th year of our Timeshare in Scottsdale.
Our daily routine at home .. lots of food and fun in the sun!
Still enjoying memories of Summer
Memories of Fall

Our Italian Sunday
We thank God for our Family, home and many blessings. On our last weekend with Eve, we enjoyed our long time tradition .. and Eve made the meatballs!
As we reach the end of October, I created a photo parade of our current times. This includes some photos of our home and gardens. Weather's great, as usual .. reaching the low 90's.

Visit to Taliesin in Wisconsin ????♥️
I've been working on our website for years to include lots of photos and videos with family and friends. As many know, the past 2 years have especially been busy showing our life and times in both homes, Tucson and Schroon River as well as our vacations and Road Trips.
Sister Eve will be visiting in October and I'll be adding memories of our exploits and adventures together. It's always fun to catch up and enjoy time together.
November is Thanksgiving, which we'll be celebrating at home and then our Get Away in Scottsdale for a week.
December is a very special month while will include our Wedding Anniversary, and another holiday vacation in Scottsdale. We're excited to be seeing it all again for the Christmas Holiday.
Since our life will continue as it has, I'll be ending my frequent monthly updates and doing only Status Updates. in 2019, i.e., holidays, celebrations, etc. I will continue to post our photos/videos on YouTube but also with less frequency.
I have also been developing a special FaceBook page to include "Memories of This Day", which allows me to see recent highlights during the year in chronological order. I've especially enjoyed seeing some of our fun times over the past 2 years. Since we returned in December, this page too will be ending. Our website contains lots of monthly updates for both years.
Thanks for viewing.
We’ve been back from our adventures in the Adirondacks and home now since December (9 months) enjoying our Endless Summer. Life will slow down even more until the holidays, but we enjoy it all.
Come October 1st, we will have relocated from NYC to Tucson 19 years!
Time marches on. Be adding lots more memories to our website during September.

September brings cooler weather and lots more fun in the sun. We're having a Labor Day Weekend with Family and Friends. I'll be adding lots more memories and music over our Holiday Weekend.
Our Desert Rockies
Life at the Top
Ready to Party
Our holiday weekend was very enjoyable, but the highlight was our Labor Day BBQ and Pool Party.
Our guests this year were Aaron and Kristina and Da Girls. Weather, food and fun filled our afternoon and evening. We're hoping to do lots more of it all. Non-stop eating, swimming and chatting made it all go quickly.
Frankly, although our home time is very much the same as we enjoyed today, it just won't be the same .. looking forward to lots more time together.
Checkout our photos and my slideshow.
Lightning Strike and Mountain Fire
We continue to enjoy September. However, Monsoon Season brings rain and lightning, and the mountains overlooking our home were struck by lightning.
