Shortly after I moved to Lockport, I was able to locate an old friend from my elementary school days, Marty Bowman.  I think we were friends until the end of eighth grade when she left to go to boarding school, I think in Florida.  A few years after that Barb and I ran into her in Pontillo's and we talked for a couple of minutes and then lost contact until I moved back.  She graduated from that boarding school, married and had one daughter and has lived in Lockport all her adult life.  Her husband passed away in 2014 and she lives not too far from me.

Elaine and I and Marty went to adult coloring together once and also had lunch at LaPorts another day.    Her birthday is this coming Saturday and Elaine and I wanted to help her celebrate it.  We decided to go out to lunch and then to the Palace to see MOANA
We picked her up at her house and I went inside for a few minutes so she could show me her apartment (very nice) and then we had lunch at SCRIPTS CAFE, which is right next to the Palace.  We had a great lunch: half a sandwich and a cup of soup, and then we went to the Palace.

The movie was pretty good (for animated) and we were given free popcorn as we left the theatre.

Gordy's and Vidlers and Geocaching (first 2017 Adventure)

My sister Gail had her birthday in August.  My other sister (Peggy) and I have been wanting to take her out to lunch to celebrate it, but it just was not happening.  Today Peggy and I decided to do something and it was a perfect chance to offer Gail a chance for her birthday lunch at one of her favorite places GORDY HARPER'S BAZAAR.

I arrived about fifteen minutes early so that I could browse in the small shops.  I didn't find anything that I wanted to purchase.

We had a nice lunch together.  I had a fruit cup and a cinnamon/banana french toast.  Both were good.
After that, Gail and I went to East Aurora so that we could go to Vidler's
and do some geocaching.  We found three geocaches and had two DNF's.  We were surprised at how many museums East Aurora has, since many of the geocaches we looked for were at various museums.  I hope to return to the Millard Fillmore House someday.

I purchased a salt and pepper shaker set and a Christmas ornament at Vidlers.  It was a fun afternoon.
