Not only is Mike captain of the boat – but head chef in the kitchen!
This couple – who have been our friends for almost 34 years –
have provided all of us first class digs – eats and fun for a long weekend
at Lake Chautauqua in North Western N.Y.
A Native American name meaning “Bag Tied In Middle”
or “Where the fish are caught”!
It is a natural lake some 27 miles long!
We all grew up in NWNY & NWPA and were friends and neighbors
before we moved away – but Mike & Carol still live here.
We get together every so often – that’s what friends do.
We have fun – laugh – some beer – wine and a few shots –
good eats and now – as guests at their lake house
they purchased a year ago!
We had planned this trip months ago – long before the pandemic.
We made sure everyone was healthy – having all practiced social distancing
and self isolation looking ahead to our long weekend together.
Sherry – Buck & I are retired – Carol has retired but chooses to help Mike
in his owned business which is country wide.
Cindy and Jim will be next to retire and then Dottie!
Mike – well he could right now –
but as he says “WHAT WOULD I DO” ?
He said he will never retire – why should he?
He comes and goes and now every weekend is at the lake.
FRIENDS – for over 34 years all of us.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
To be continued!
