It was a nice fairly warm fall day and I decided I NEEDED to get outside. Chicky is not feeling well, but Mary Ann was free and we met up at her house at ten a.m. We headed out Beattie Avenue and turned on ____________ an a little ways down we found the old cemetery where we found KNOCK KNOCK. Then we headed to Day Road to look for SCOOTER DUDE. We looked for over a half hour, but no luck. Mary Ann suggested we take a break for lunch. We decided on TOM'S DINER, and used one of the coupons from my SAVE AROUND BUFFALO book. On the way out of the diner I saw this display of pumpkins decorated by school children. Then we headed to the new paved trail along the canal and we found three new geocaches there: Black and Red All Over, Just for Kids and Caged.

On Carol's second and last full day in Lockport, we headed north. First to MURPHY ORCHARDS, where you can see and hear a story about the Underground Railroad. This passageway was used as part of the Underground Railroad: and then we explored the Amish area a bit, by heading east on Mill Road. We found the school :

Carol Kraft arrived yesterday afternoon for a few days visit. I prepared a turkey dinner with all the trimming for supper. We had a quiet evening at home. Early today we headed out for a DAY OUT. On the way out to Clarence, we stopped at Home Depot so Carol could check out the microwaves. Then we continued on to Clarence to go to PAULA'S DONUTS. We each purchased a donut to take with us. We drove west on Route 5 and stopped at a nursery/farm market. and here is Carol standing at a piano in one of the downstairs rooms.

This morning Gail and I met up in order to go to the Fall Bazaar at the Presbyterian Home. It was very small, I purchased six baskets (they were three for $12 but I ha a 25 percent off coupon. Then we took three of them to Peggy at Faith Tab. and Peggy gave Gail her birthday gift. Then Gail and I went to the Market Street Art Center for the Joe Whalen exhibit. I had Mr. Whalen for art in the ninth grade. T Then we went out to lunch at TOM'S DINER, which I think is Gail's favorite restaurant. It was a nice morning. The Annual Lockport Care Not Center Banquet was tonight at Salvatore's Italian Garden. I invited my friends Elaine and Mary Ann. Elaine picked me up and then we went to get Mary Ann. Because of new construction (Salvatore's must be expanding) we had a bit of a rough time finding the parking lot. The meal was delicious! I bid on a few of the silent auction items, but could not keep up with the other bidders. The speaker (Amy Ford) was very good.

I called my cousin Becky the other day and asked her if she wanted to get together on Saturday. She said she had plans to go to the basket raffle event at Concordia Lutheran Church in Newfane and that the event would start at eleven a.m., with the drawing at one p.m. I then told her about the free lasagna dinner at the my friend Lynnettes church with an auction to follow. We agreed to go to both events, taking a break in the middle. I met up with Becky at Concordia Lutheran Church. We had lunch and purchased tickets for the basket raffle (its basically a Chinese Auction. Becky won two items, but I was not as lucky. Later on we met up at the Warrens Corners Church (I think its Lutheran) for a lasagna dinner and auction. The dinner was very good. The pastor of the church was the auctioneer. I saw two items I liked, but the bidding went up too high right away so I did not bid. Becky bid on several things and had purchased two items when I left.

My friend Betty was on vacation from her job this week. She had mentioned a while back that she wanted to go to OLD FORT NIAGARA. We waited for a warm day this week, but it never came. So we bit the bullet today and headed out towards Youngstown. Although it was cold and windy, we thoroughly enjoyed the fort. Much of it was inside, and one spot had a nice wood fire going. There were many demonstrations: this is the French Castle By the time we had seen everything, it was lunch time. We were on our way to the car when we noticed the lighthouse near the parking area. We asked and found out it was open and we went inside.
