Dave's 40th

Welcome to the 40's Club Dave! It's not a bad place.

So back to the Auburn - Syracuse area of NY State (Finger Lakes Region) to celebrate Dave's big b-day and to get together with a lot of old friends. A shoutout to Fred and Michelle for letting my crash at their house in Radison, NY for 4 days.

Christie did an incredible job of organizing the wine tasting tour. 17 of us in 2 vans plus 1 car. So who was there? Dave and Christie of course. Tim, Steve and Gwyn and respective spouses (oh yeah, happy b-day to you as well Max!!). Gerald, Maryanne, Fred and Keith were present along with Steve and Lisa (friends of Steve or maybe they were total strangers) and of course Steve Senior and Bobby.

Missing from the old group of friends - Scott (we did have an excellent meal at Scott and Laura's the day before however), Yung and Mark.

So the wine tour consisted of several wineries between Cayuga and Seneca Lakes ( the two biggest of the Finger Lakes). The weather actually turned OK considering a pesky tropical storm was hovering nearby in the Atlantic Ocean.

Great to be back in Auburn, NY and Syracuse, NY again and seeing old friends. Life is too short not to enjoy good conversation, some drinks from time to time and a boat load of BS.
