I'm alive and well!

When I opened my new e-mails this morning, there was a note from a frequent reader of my blog that said, "Can't believe you haven't written in your blog in so long."

There is no particular reason for this other than I need to be "inspired" to write. I could never be a professional writer with a deadline. I can only write what I feel.

Just a quick update on what's been going on in my life since my last entry over a week ago. . . not much! I did enjoy a very nice evening out with my friends, Robert and Nancy, last week. We first went to an Irish Pub just down the street from their home. This pub had the look and feel of the pubs in Ireland. Maybe that is because the young man who owns and operates the pub is the son of Irish immigrants. I enjoyed talking with him about Ireland, a country I have visited twice and really love.

From there, we walked a short distance down the street to a rather unique place called Mise en Place. It is a small grocery store but in one corner, and on the sidewalk in front, they serve meals. The food was delicious.

These two places that we visited are in an area of the city of Rochester called the South Wedge. There are efforts here to revitalize this area and make it into a thriving destination with small boutiques and coffee shops. I hope they succeed.

I have been trying to make the most of the final days of summer, getting outside as much as possible. . . even if only to mow the lawn or pull weeds!
