Peter and I went to Costco on Saturday and bought two fresh turkeys at 49 cents a pound. One went into the freezer and the other one was in the oven 12 hours later. Great dinner…stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, spaghetti squash and a good Shiraz. Life is good. Not to forget all the leftovers for the rest of the week.

Dennis and Chrissy out-did themselves once again. The dinner was yummy and the hors d'oeuvres were awesome! Calamari, shrimp, fish cakes (the best!!) and deep fried fish nuggets from the catch (striper) of the day by Dennis. Desserts - too many goodies! All delicious.
The kids were all cute and Chrissy’s brother and sister-in-law brought their new, very cute little baby boy.

Needs a little re-designing.
Cons: Camera pocket too small

Describe Yourself: Photo Enthusiast
Was this a gift?: No
I love the bag. It's comfortable to carry and it doesn't really look like a camera bag, which makes it nice when traveling.
I have a Nikon D3100 and department where the camera goes in, could be a little larger, it fits, but it's tight. My 70-300mm lens doesn't fit in the compartment, but there is room for it on the side and since it's in it's own padded pouch, it's fine. I also fit my mono pod inside and there is still room for my wallet, sun glasses, batteries, etc. All in all....I like it a lot!

Peter and I took a little trip to New York City today. The weather was perfect for it. We took the bus from Toms River ($17.50 round trip for seniors). It was very convenient and easy. We bought the tickets two days prior and we took the 7:15 am express bus. We had to go to the German consulate which is located on 1st Avenue, right passed the United Nations between 48th and 49th St. It was a nice walk from the Port Authority, about a mile and a half. I promised myself that I will repeat this trip in spring. Peter hates the city, so he’ll just have to baby-sit Kia and off I go….. LOL

I almost forgot…when there are deer passing by in our backyard, our little Kia loves watching them and tries to get their attention by barking. Of course it works and she will get their attention, but they just look over like they would say: “So, what do you want you little squirt?” It’s still cute though….

At night we had another very nice get-to-gether with neighbors. Everyone brought a dish and the food, including desert. The food was great and so was the company.
Sunday was a good day. First we went to see Anna play soccer and in the afternoon we went over Dennis and Chrissy’s to watch Iron Man 2. Luke is a great fan of Iron Man. We spent a wonderful time together. Dennis and Chrissy invited us over for a great dinner with fresh caught striper , fresh asparagus and a garden salad. Delicious

Peter was busy this week…he cleaned all our bicycles - 4 of them. My Hampton Cruiser got new tires and tubes and his bike just the tubes. Can’t wait to be able to ride again. I am still afraid to leave the house for a longer period of time, because of my Salmonella poisoning. I will ride around the block a few times, but longer rides aren’t possible yet. Peter got to ride his bike after he put in the new tubes.

Today we went to Aldis and I thought I died and went to heaven. Marzipan, Lebkuchen, Mozartkugeln, Domino Steine, Peanut Clusters, Chocolate Pralines, Spekulatius and Stollen.I also found Advent calendars for the grandkids.
We also went to see Anna play soccer again. She was awesome! It was pretty cold. Glad I had gloves and Ava got daddy’s gloves.

We had a wonderful time with Charlene. She sure brought some sunshine from California to New Jersey. We went to Island Beach State Park. Great place to visit. We even saw a fox.
