View East

Spent yesterday doing odd jobs around the house and running errands, then driving up to Don’s Uncle’s house nr Amenia (about half way up NY State on the eastern edge) to pick the remaining apples from the orchard and finish tidying the garden. The weather was again fantastic, the fall colours all one would expect and the rolling countryside looked beautiful.
The house was amazing, another traditional clap-board colonial style building with huge columns on the front.
In the garage were two cars one of which dates from around 1901 and has a Ford body, all timber and a Mercedes engine. It’s in immaculate condition and belonged to Don’s Uncle, he also had a Packard Super Eight from the 1930’s which he was driving until very recently at the age of 90!
