Why is the sign at "half mast?"
We had some other errands to run on Monday afternoon, then dinner with our hosts, Lorraine and Lou. Lorraine made a big salad and we added some sliced turkey breast which was left over from our wings feast on Sunday (I forgot to tell you about that. And, there were sweet potatoes!). We enjoyed the food while watching Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," which Lorraine and Lou had recorded for us. We couldn't have asked for a better evening!
The Livingston Avenue railroad bridge over the Hudson River at Albany. The center section (left) swings to let tall boats through.
On Tuesday, the weather changed and it rained. That didn't pose any real problem. I had an eye exam first thing that morning and ordered some new glasses. After that, we went shopping for jeans and other clothes that are much more economical for us to buy in the US than in France.
Lunch was more Buffalo-style chicken wings at another wings joint in a shopping center. We ran from store to store in the pouring rain, but we had fun and found some good bargains.
