Drip Systems, Graduation, & the Big Apple

We spent the past few weeks installing drip systems in all of our raised beds, flower beds, and any plants that might need watering if we take a trip, such as the one we took this past week, to New Jersey to attend our nephew's graduation from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The ceremony was nice, maybe a little long as they read every graduating person (2400+), but he was one happy camper after it was over. He even gets a couple of weeks off before he starts his internship at Standard & Poor's. 

We took 3 days to get to NJ which makes each day about a 10 hour day of driving. It was really nice to not have anything to do except lay around, watch tv, and sleep. I think we took 2 naps a day while we were there. Felt mighty nice to sleep that much.

double parked on 73rd Street trying to load a barber chair

carried the barber chair out of Kaz's apartment in NYC after being stuck in traffic for over an hour trying to get into the city. Rod barely had enough time to get to work on time. Wouldn't have been able to load it without his help.

Gasoline was rather high in NYC!! Luckily we didn't need gas at the time!

Stopped in east Stroudsburg, Pa. to stop at a Walmart for some cleaning supplies. It was near lunch so we ate at the Holy Guacamole Mexican Grill. Set up similar to a Chipolte Grill. Build your own burrito or taco. Simple, tasty, and quick. Very good mexican food, especially for Pennsylvania!

Italian food in Hubbard, Oh. Not that great, but not bad.

Until next time......
