FINALLY, today, September 7th worked out to be the day we both had a free day. Carol picked me up
a little after 10:30 a.m. and we headed out towards Endicott (near Binghamton) where we knew we wanted to have lunch at PHIL'S CHICKEN HOUSE. Carol knows the owner and had been given a coupon for a free meal.
Carol bought some apples at THE CIDER MILL and we both bought a donut. Then we headed to PHIL'S CHICKEN HOUSE, where we had a nice lunch. The chicken there is very much like BROOKS, but not quite as good, mostly because it did not come with barbecue sauce. I had the salad and soup bar along with my quarter chicken and mashed potatoes.
After that, we decided to do some geocaching. We found two out of three. One was at a really nice
monument/memorial to soldiers and sailors, etc. After that we headed to Binghamton to go to an art show featuring Carol's former daughter in law's work. After that, we headed towards home, stopping at a nearby McDonalds for a cold drink. We ate our donuts in the car after leaving McDonalds and both of us exclaimed about how delicious they were. Mine was chocolate peanut. Carol had maple peanut.
Then we headed back towards Oneonta, taking 88 most of the way, and then Route 7. We went to FAMILY DOLLAR to pick up a couple items and then returned to my house.
It was a really fun day, but a bit on the tiring side (esp. since I did not have a good nights sleep last night).
