the Dog Days of Summer……..Whaaaat?:(

I’m not sure where the summer went this year, but here it is the middle of August, and schools are opening already.its true I’m retired, but i still go by the school calendar, and i still get up at the crackA$$ of dawn., so while a take a break from my vacation to Florida, i went to spend the week-end with my good pal and her Hubby in Buffalo ,NY.. They always try to show me a good time and this past week-end was no different.

I’m always amazed at the construction going on in my Home Town, Lord knows Buffalonians have waited a long to see prosperity, and its finally happening. their down town has been revitalized into a destination place that is beyond any ones wildest dreams.

it was an amazing day, the clouds were perfect the water was calm

  1. I was in Buffalo a few years ago. It looked nothing like this, as I remember. But then, I don’t remember much. An old college friend of mine had just moved there so we celebrated. And then we celebrated some more. I do remember some great food in a restaurant with brick walls. Oh well….

  2. Hi Emilio, i sure hope you make it back… in the past few years, buffalo has become a real destination place,must have started to rebuild shortly after your visit.. i think i have an earlier blog or 2 concentrating on the water front… as for your recollection… there is a bar called the Brick bar? you may have been in Allentown, which is located close to downtown, or you may have been near the university on Elmwood Ave???In any event,it sounds like you had a great time,with last call being at 4am. thanks for stopping by
