I'm home, which is not the same thing as being refreshed. Got here at 9 pm. Just a few more "bests" of another travel day. Tomorrow I have to work, and hope to get caught up reading many of your blogs. I'm not crazy about these miscellaneous posts... they don't tell you much about anything, but it does give you a taste of the day.
I spent the night with Irene, and the very best thing about Irene is that I am able to tell you I visited her. She spent 3 months of last year in the hospital, and very nearly didn't get to come home at all, ever. She's working hard to rebuild her strength.
Another goodbye to the hills of western New York that I love so much. This is coming down the road Irene lives on.
One way in which NY is ahead of Michigan is in embracing wind power. There are a few turbines going up in my county, but scenes like this one are becoming common in New York. For any who might not be familiar with these and need a sense of scale, one single blade is a full load for a semi-truck. They are assembled on site.
Finally, I bring you "Muddy," the world's largest catfish statue. (All I can tell you is what the city of Dunnville, Ontario, claims. I have not personally checked all catfish statues.) The sign says it was put up in 2009, and I've driven this route one other time since then, but somehow didn't notice it.
Going to bed. I'm sure all you blogger friends are feeling that I've abandoned you. I plead guilty this week, but you'll see more of me over the next few days.
