Back in Texas
I can't believe I'm home. (And writing my blog, again!) When I went on vacation with Beth and Don I thought I would be gone a week in New York. But Beth lost me and my dear friends, The Lackos found me. I stayed with them for a few weeks and we went on some exciting adventures around Lake Placid and Lansing, NY.
The Lackos introduced me to Rose so I'd have a friend, then they packaged us safely and sent us to Texas. It was hard saying good-bye. I miss playing pool and going fishing, but I promised I'd show Rose some things she's never seen. First I had her climb this! Guess where we are?
This thing is not small! It took us about an hour to climb a third of the way up.
Then we found the hole and rested for a long time.
Then up we went... and up some more... and way up...
To The Top!
Okay, this photo is really another palm tree. Very short. But we thought about climbing all the way up the tall one. Another day, maybe.
Then what did we do?
We rested again.
Here we are resting in a special chair! I saw a lot of these in Lake Placid. In fact I posed on one shortly before I was lost. I thought Rose would be very impressed that I have one of these, because she is from New York.
Rose was impressed. In fact she told me the history of Adirondack chairs. (Rose seems to know a lot of stuff) She said the original design was created by Thomas Lee in 1903 when he was vacationing in the Adriondack mountains.
Here's a picture of me in Lake Placid, sitting comfortably on that smooth, flat armrest. (kind of like a beaver tail, I told Rose) She told me they used to make each chair out of one piece of wood cut into 11 pieces. But I wasn't really listening because I was thinking about getting lost in Lake Placid. I'm glad that happened. I never would have met The Lackos or Rose!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
