Thanksgiving has meant many things over the years, and we've shared our blessings with family and friends. So many good times, especially since we moved into our home .. then and now!
We head to Retirement Living
We moved from the city after 4 years to an age 55 community, looking for more country living and fun in the sun. We would spend 8 years before moving back to Tucson proper.
We, and our extended family, enjoy many happy memories!
October 1, 1999 .. we relocate from NYC to Tucson.
We bought a condo in Tucson, and spend 4 years before moving to the "burbs". Lots of fun, family times. Family and friends visit, and we buy a Timeshare in Scottsdale. Son John attends the University of Arizona after high school.
Happy Little Family
As our main page notes, we'll be switching from our current view to a retrospective view of our life. Paulina and I brought Son John into the world on August 10, 1984 .. and our new life!
Checkout our memories of our days in NYC and son John's first 15 Years .. before we relocated to Tucson in 1999.
It was truly a new beginning and a wonderful year. So many memories, we sold our home in Skyline Country Club Estates in January, tried Senior Living in February and March, then bought our home in Houghton and Moved in on April 3rd.
In years gone by, we oft celebrated our holidays at our timeshare in Scottsdale. But this year we'll be doing a Staycation at Westin La Paloma (Christmas Eve thru New Year). Checkout my memories!
I'm just beginning my December Status Update, with lots more to go by year end! Watch for updates now thru the New Year.

Time to Celebrate
Thanksgiving, my favorite time of the year. Paulina and I have enjoyed many Thanksgivings with Family and Friends. Now, in our Senior Years, we continue the tradition.
This year we'll be dining out, no fuss, no muss .. no hosting. Just a day of celebration. Lots of fond memories of years gone by. I'll be adding lots of new photos and videos this month to highlight our celebration. Checkout my November and Thanksgiving Photo Journal.
Thanksgiving is getting close and we're getting excited!
Like Mama Used to Make
Paulina is making lots of dishes that I grew up loving. Coming next, "Lamb Pizzaiola"
Age and circumstances caused us to move from our French Chateau and we're living the good life again!
We tried Senior Living at Atrium Gardens, but we found that we didn't enjoy hotel living. So, we bought a home 6 months ago and we're enjoying the lifestyle, privacy, space, freedom and home cooking!
October, Living Life
This month we're beginning our Katz's subscription, and we'll be enjoying some Pastrami and Reuben sandwiches with Da Family to celebrate our OctoberFest! We're also enjoying our neighborhood Halloween decorations too!
Fall is beautiful and we're enjoying it. Check out my Photo Journal "October, Trick or Treat"
We're doing family Thanksgiving at home, but we'll be doing a Staycation at a local hotel, Westin La Paloma from Christmas Eve thru New Year's Day.
Back to Schroon River in '22
Circumstances permitting we'll be returning to our home in the Adirondacks next Summer. And doing our Road Trips and Vacations while touring America! We've got wonderful memories of our last trip East.
Thanksgiving has always been special for all of us. Lots of memories of family and friends. Even thou times have changed, and the pandemic is causing us to stay home and safe, we're always gonna remember all the many family gatherings and wonderful memories.
We enjoyed some time away, and the holiday spirits. We use our Timeshare for lots of getaways. This year, we'll be doing it for Christmas and New Year!
Watch for our November Updates .. with this year's crop!
October Photo Journal
Checkout my monthly photo journal for October for lots more photos.
We enjoyed our first Summer in our new home, and I created "Summer's Gone, Fall is Here" (a 50 minute photo video of some highlights). We kicked off Summer with our Family 4th of July and enjoyed son John's Birthday in August, as well as some home time and dining in the desert!
See You in September
We arrived on October 1, 1999 and got a very pleasant surprise .. Winter is only a vague similarity to our times back East.
We enjoyed Halloween at Paulina's Place on Schroon River in the Adirondacks with family friends.
We'' be enjoying our Columbus Day and OctoberFest, just got my scooter and our Katz Pastrami begins in October!
Life in the Country
We initially bought a condominium in the city, and lived there until August 2003. We lived in a Retirement Community and enjoyed our home there for 8 years before moving to our French Chateau in Skyine County Club Estates for the next 10 years. After selling our home again in March, we tried Senior Living at Atria .. but decided it wasn't for us and bought our current home in Houghton, Tucson!
We really are County People, and now have 2 homes .. Tucson and the Adirondacks!
Time for Living
We decided to simplify our life, and spend our Golden Years enjoying life .. building back better!
We continue to shelter in place!
US Tennis Open
Paulina and I have enjoyed playing and watching tennis since we met in ‘82, so many wonderful memories. This year, as in years past, we'll be watching!
Fall, it's time to think about more fun in the sun .. we bought a Chill Pool and we're already planning on a Staycation at the Westin La Paloma for the holidays,
