Day 104


I thought this an appropriate photo for today, as it shows friends joined together...the perfect seque to...

What a nice surprise I had yesterday from Kitty of New York Portraits, when she included me in her BFF (Blogging Friends Forever) awards list - I was so pleased and am so happy to have made new blogging friends since starting 365DaysinIslip.

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Only five people allowed

2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog

3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world

4. You must link back to whomever gave you the award

It *is* hard to select just five recipients as there are so many talented bloggers and good friends on blogger, but, here are my selections to forward the BFF award onto:

1. The gracious Iris, of 365 Days in Guntersville, Alabama. She always has something positive to say, and I love seeing a daily slice of her life
2. Fran, who shares so much trivia about her Ohio hometown in
365 Days in Zanesville, Ohio
3. Lily Hydrangea, a fellow Long Island blogger, who shows me daily the things I don't have time to go see myself!
4. Paz of
Pazs New York Minute - NYC and the surrounding areas are still like a foreign place to me - I'm grateful to have a daily glimpse!
5. And last but not least, my new long-distance Swedish friend, Fredrick in

Congrats to all, and enjoy passing the award along to *your* blogging friends :-)

Wowie Zowie, who'd'a'thunk I'da stuck with this?? I'm pretty impressed with myself, One Hundred Days! And here to celebrate, is a cheat day! Ha. Mr. William Drago, of Loving Long Island, sent me a follow-up picture to my Day 98 - he'd taken a full shot of the house with "fancy gates" from the water (being the avid boater that he is), so I thought I'd share this with y'all today. I wasn't kidding when I said it looks like a hotel!

Thanks, Bill!

Day 89

I'm cranky. It was a good day right up until it became a really, really bad day. Here's my picture.

Day 88

Today was glorious. It rained during the night, then was sunny and damp all day - that sort of fog that the warm autumn light shines through and reflects off of, making everything look soft and hazy but bright. I didn't have to work and got to enjoy the lovely day. Tomorrow is back to the office. But at least I had today.

Day 87

About ten years ago I friend and I drove down to the little Islip beach to eat was the last week of the school daughter was still in her elementary school class that day...but on the beach that day, in this gazebo, a small wedding was taking place. Two kids that looked like high school students, a few family members and friends, and some sort of justice. And a very small wedding in the beach gazebo.

I think of them almost every time I'm down I'm at that beach. Did they make the marriage work? They were So Young. I wonder how they are now.
