Is it really July already?
It's hard to imagine that July is here. This will be a busy month for me. In just 9 more days, I will spend the day with my grandchildren. We will go to the Strong Museum here in Rochester. If you've never been there, you don't know what you are missing. Another weekend I will be on a canoe camping trip to the Adirondacks for four days. There is a small group of us that go up every year (or at least TRY to go every year!), do some paddling, and camp dutch oven cooking and enjoy sitting around a campfire. This is the month of my twins birthday. I won't tell you how old they will be 'cause that would make me look old. I'm also looking forward to taking a two day NRA sanctioned course on the use of a pistol in self defense at the Genesee Conservation League. The course is called Personal Protection Outside the Home. That will be an exhaustive weekend, ten hours of class each day. . . but well worth it. In between all these activities, I hope to get out more on my bike and in my kayak. Summer is just too short in upstate New York.
