Halloween

We got back from the Elisabeth’s and Luke’s school Halloween parade. All the kids were cute and needless to say, the cutest ones (of course) were Luke and Elisabeth. The parade was at 9:35am.

Off the the next parade at 1:45pm.  This one is for Ava.  The sky looked dreary and it got pretty chilly too. Those poor kids in their customs were freezing.  Still fun though!

At 5pm we went to Tammy’s.  Great food, nice company and fun kids.  I had Kia with me and couldn’t really take a lot of pictures.  Got the cutest three girls together for a few photos.

Sandy Hook and Twin Light

What a gorgeous fall day it was today.  We actually wanted to drive to the Ground for Sculptures, but they are closed on Mondays.  I am glad we went to Sandy Hook instead.  It was nice and finally, after many years saying: “I want to go to the Twin Lights one day”, we made it.  It was very nice and never mind the Twin Lights….the view from up there is beautiful!

Time to say ‘so long’

Petra and Marcel are leaving tomorrow so we went over to Tammy’s to say good bye.  We didn’t stay long because it was an unplanned visit.

Busy day

Busy, but fun!  In the morning we went to Ava’s soccer game which started out awesome, because they shot the first goal and then all went down hill….4-1 for the Toms River team.  All in all a good game though and our Ava did awesome.  The fist half hour she was a goalie and then she played defense.

The Halloween parade was at 7pm and it’s been a few years that we have been there.  Thank God it was warm!  We had a good time, especially since our Luke was participating in it.  His Boy’s Scout Troop came dressed as the people in the Mindcraft game.  Good job!

Petra and Marcel

Today we had the pleasure to have a great day in Atlantic City with my cousin’s daughter Petra and her son Marcel. We didn’t gamble.  Just walked a little on the boardwalk and Petra got here feet wet.  We ended the day with dinner at the Golden Coral.  It wasn’t really that great.  Peter and I were a little disappointed.  The quality wasn’t as good as we are accustomed to.

Dennis’s 41st Birthday

We had a wonderful time at Dennis’s birthday.  I can not believe that Dennis is 41 years old.  it seems like he was just a toddler.

Island Heights

The day couldn’t have been more gorgeous.  Debby drives every day to Island Heights to walk her two miles on the boardwalk. Today I joined her and let me tell you…..I give Debby credit.  I tried….gave up after a mile and took some pictures. Smile

No shit!

I am going to tell you about my evening, whether you want to read it or not.
Toilet over flowed, bathtub filled up with gross stuff....mopping water from over flowed toilet....YUK! Thank god there was no, you know what!!
Plunging didn't help! Called the sewer company and they were here within an hour. Kudos to the Berkeley Township Sewer Co.
So....now you wanna know the reason for the blockage right? Well, JCP&L did some work here and looky here....the idiots drilled a hole into our sewer pipe, despite the fact that it was clearly marked and that flushed sand in the pipe and blocked everything. It's not fixed yet....tomorrow they'll be back. At least they flushed the sand out and we can 'very carefully' use the john. Gheez!!!

10/9 Follow up…..all fixed and everything flows again. Smile

Back home for the winter

I will miss the mountains and the forests, but it is good to be home again.  We weren’t even home an hour and got greeted by our herd.

Mifflinburg Oktoberfest

One of our camping neighbors told us about the Oktoberfest in Mifflinburg.  Needless to say that I felt we had to go there.  I was in the mood for a huge mug of Weizenbier.  Well…..you can imagine our disappointment when we went to the fair grounds in Mifflinburg and there were only a handful booth, one beer stand where you had to buy the mug to get a beer.  The small 12 ounce plastic mug was $8.  Since I already was disappointed about the whole affair, never mind the food, I wasn’t going to buy the beer and neither did Peter want one.  We left and went shopping in Selinsgrove and then back to Elysburg to eat dinner at Ponduce Farm.

Covered Bridge Festival

We had a great time!  It was amazing how many vendors there were. There were a lot of great artist and yummy food stands.  From fish cakes to funnel cakes and of course, there was ice cream too.  We had a prime rib sandwich and it was real good.  The plan for tomorrow is to drive to Mifflinburg for their Oktoberfest.
