Jeff, the fur boys and me are settled in Adele and Craig’s driveway where we will be for another month or so. We have been doing some house cleaning….a little shopping….a little gardening….and just hanging out.
The weather has started to cool…no more 70s for a while. It was in the 60s today and it will cool to the 50s later in the week.
I walked around the yard after using the leaf blower for a bit….took these photos….
Happy Holidays to you all……

Jeff and I are in North Carolina visiting my sister and her husband and fur animals….Adele, Jeff and I went out for Thanksgiving lunch at the 1895 Grille
at Pinehurst…. Craig was working there and wasn’t able to eat with us…but he came over to the table a few times to say hello.
Since we were going to cook a turkey later in the day we decided to order Fillet, and Striped Bass. Everything was very yummy and we left stuffed Turkeys…..
We had a nice walk around Pinehurst and then home again to cook Mr. tom…..
Jeff made a marinade which he then injected into the turkey. 4 hours later the temperature was finally right and the button popped out….it was kinda dry…but still tastes good.
Jeffy and I did a little black Friday shopping today…got a few bargains.
We had the turkey dinner today…yumm….we had mashed turnip, green beans, baked sweet potato, sausage stuffing from new york, and of course turkey and gravy.
Tomorrow we will go to the Open house at the nursery where Adele works.
Lots of Christmas tree lightings, parades and festivals the next few weeks here….I look forward to going to all the festivities.
that was our delicious Thanksgiving lunch……
Sorry it has taken me so long to post this…..but as some of you know the night before Steve was inducted into the Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame, his wife Lena had a stroke.
Despite how scary and difficult this must have been for Lena she
insisted Steve and their daughter Tracy attend the ceremony.
Lena is recuperating nicely and we all hope that she will be back doing all the things she loves to do very soon.
Steve Saradnik, Chatham second baseman
The hard-hitting infielder from Providence College played four All-Star seasons for the Chatham A’s from 1964-67, highlighted by the ’65 season when he batted .349 with two homers, 17 RBI, 37 hits and 34 runs scored. He also hit .314 in ’64 and .311 in ’66, when he led the league with 31 runs scored. A native of Natick, Mass., the talented second baseman was instrumental in Chatham’s’ success during the mid-1960’s, including the 1967 season when the A’s captured the CCBL championship. He played in the Seattle Pilots’ farm system.
