Monday, Jan. 20, was a holiday. It was Martin Luther King’s birthday. Marcia had to work and dropped off Kyra at my house at 7 a.m. 

Kyra and I went with Brandon to pick up Nichole and Samson. It was his holiday to spend with them. Jenn Smith and Iain met us at Sunset Lanes in Colonie.

Last week, I said that we would explore building and scenery changes made because of technology and gifts from benefactors. 

My hometown of Fairhaven, Mass. has been honored with many gifts, so I would like to start with benefactors.

Another week is zooming by. The Polar Vortex weather is supposed to return this week; I guess before we know it, spring will be here. 

It is always interesting to read about the Altamont High School class reunions.

The most recent sixtieth reunion pictured and talked about people who are well-known in and around the village. They are still the supporters of our businesses, churches and fraternal organizations.

Another week has already passed by. It was a very frigid week.

On Monday, Jan. 6, I was supposed to go shopping with my daughter, Marcia, to buy her a birthday present. I started calling her house about 9 a.m. and every half-hour until noon and she didn’t answer.

Jim and I enjoy cruising for many reasons as you well know, if you are a regular reader. Of course, we like the food, the royal treatment and the relaxation. However, we enjoy the opportunity to learn new things each time we get off the ship and take a tour.

Christmas is over. On Thursday, Dec. 26 I wrote my news and took it to Altamont. It had to be in early as the holiday falls in the middle of the week.

I picked up some Chinese food and ate with my daughter, Marcia Pangburn and Kyra and we watched family DVDs. 

A group of us were sitting at the end of the pool enjoying the sunny weather and having a refreshing cool drink. Nancy’s husband came through the gate and everyone remarked that he looked like he was dressed for winter. Charlie had on a long sleeved shirt and long pants.

 When people attend the Altamont Fair for the first time, they may be overwhelmed by the large variety of exhibits at their disposal. The more they visit, the better acquainted they become with the people and exhibits that the fair has to offer.

On Monday, Dec. 16, my daughter, Marcia Pangburn, came and had breakfast with me.
