I decided to check out the village or hamlet of Sidney Center. I had been there before to geocache, but my camera was acting up that day and I had been unable to get pictures of the old train depot.................I found the depot easily today. I stopped at the post office to mail a package, and I also went into a store called THE STORE. Seems like it is mostly a sub shop now, with a few grocery items. On the way back to Sidney, I followed a sign that said YOUNGS, which turned out to be a tiny berg or hamlet.
By this time I was getting hungry, but as I drove down Main Street I didn't see any place that appealed to me. I took Route 7 back to Oneonta, and stopped at the PARKVIEW DELI before I got to Unadilla. I had a burger and a Snapple. As I was leaving, I noticed an interesting small building next door to the deli so I decided to check it out. Thats it at the top. It seems to be a small workshop in which someone does some artistic work in metal. I noticed the ghost sign for DUKES DINER propped up just inside the doorway on the right hand side.
I stopped at the Variety Store in Unadilla to get some dish liquid and then I headed for home. I still haven't heard from Joyce, I hope everything is OK.
