This past weekend I and my kids went up to Chemung County, New York near Elmira. Back when my late wife Eileen and I first discussed how we would want to be dealt with after death, we both agreed on cremation. She wanted to have her ashes scattered in the mountains, I wanted mine dumped out of the back of a speeding train (ever the railfan). We have dear friends that live up that way and they have a very wooded lot that abuts on an old abandoned christmas tree farm. Near the border of that land was her favorite spot to go and meditate. With the help of my son and daughter we placed her in her favorite place. So as I said some thing are finally done.
On Monday Fulton-Friendship Lodge was the host lodge for the Third Masonic District in New Jersey. The district marched in the Montvale-Park Ridge-Woodcliff Lake memorial day parade. Afterwards we fed them all. So guess where I was through all this. In the kitchen and manning the grill. I think we fed them sufficiently.
Tuesday was Fellowship night at the lodge, and ritual practice. We will be raising a couple of brothers to Master Mason in a few weeks.
Wednesday was the annual meeting of the New York Society of Model Engineers. this is also when we have the annual elections for the coming year. Yours truly was re-elected to the position of shop-steward for another year.
Thursday will be Fifth Thursday Dance for the Royal Forest of Rusted Woodlands (SCA). They are combining this with an A&S display. We'll see how that all works out.
That is all for now.

If this was at T&A's - oh what a abbreviation that is! - may I say my greetings to her next time I visiting? (and if it is, what a lovely place to do so) I remember when we put my moms ashes to rest - it was a very bittersweet moment.

The problem with going there will Tim, of course. He will just keep going and going and going....*sigh*

I will be very honored to visit! I need to email Anita - I have some of her book to read!
