Going to Pick up Mom

Yesterday I went to pick up Mom to bring her back for a week’s visit. It was a beautiful day. Clear blue skies with a few puffy white clouds. The trees were changing in spots. Traffic was light and not too many trucks on the road. With Becky’s surround sound turned way up, the miles slid past without my even noticing as Steve Tyrell and Andrea Boccelli sang to me. My guide posts went by quickly. NY State Thruway comes one half hour into the trip. Next at one hour is Poughkeepsie. Kingston/Rhinebeck about 15 mintues after that. A short pit stop at the New Baltimore service area with a Starbuck’s latte to keep me going. Albany comes next at right at two hours. After I pass Lake George I start to feel “home free” but it will be another half hour or so before I pull into Mom’s driveway. The weather was so pleasant I opened the sun roof. I took the windy Pottersville Road at about 60 mph this tiime. Becky likes the curves and hills.

My Mom, bless her,  always has a bottle of wine waiting for me when I arrive!

We made the return trip back this morning.


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
