A visit to Northport, Long Island

Most of our gang trained out on a drizzly Saturday for a delightful visit with Father Francis, the Catholic chaplain at the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

We visited the harbor, the Church of St. Phillip of Neri, the Medical facility, and the rectory. We ate at Intermezzo Trattoria (which I greatly enjoyed and highly recommend).

Here is a little of our visit:

Pillar to Post

As I beseech the heavens traversing the course of my own little Grapes of Wrath

Friends indeed are helping in always to be remembered ways.

Karen and Kerestel Smith, and Steve Kearney drove down one night to move my office furniture yet another time.

This truck load below was dragged up four flights of stairs.

Tahoe Boy

Pat Hickey wrote an autobiography called Tahoe Boy.

He came to New York to help his publisher promote the book at Book Expo America 2009, in the Javits Center.

I spent a morning with Pat there.

Remarkable to see the industry at work. Here are some of what a visitor would see besides books (in efforts to get your attention).
