Later that night, a bunch of us went up to West Point to see an RPI hockey game. While Jennifer is a long time Army fan, it was nice to see RPI win for a change…even though Jeanette says we stink. Apparently, just not as much as Army.
Along for the game were Roger, Mark, Skull, Jeanette and Rob. A special guest appearance was made by Brian “Biggles” Jones, famed radio personality.
This week’s adventure took place in Harriman State Park just north of the city. Along for the walk were Skull, Jeanette and Rob, newlyweds Donny and Sue…and of course, Jennifer and Tom.
The hike starts off on 7 Lakes Drive, just off of Route 17 near Tuxedo. The fall colors were great, although the cloudy skies dulled some of the pictures.
This weekend was the Alzheimer’s Association’s “Memory Walk 2004”. Thanks to our very generous friends, we were able to raise $1,245 (of the $408,000 raised at the event). Very impressive for a first try.
Norman, Jennifer’s dad, complained the whole way. It was cold and he constantly threatening to call a cab. If you know Norm, this is just his way of saying he’s having fun.
We were even able to do some celebrity sighting. To those of you familiar with New York’s new radio 1010WINS, we now know what Alice Stockton Rosini looks like. We also got to see David Hyde Pierce (of Frazier fame) whose father and grand father were victims of Alzheimer’s. I grabbed a photo as Jennifer attempted to “lap” him on the walk.
Once again, thanks to all of our friends and family who donated to the cause. Hopefully, we will some day be able to lick this horrible disease.
