Close to Syracuse. If you have ever been to the Sterling Renn Festival, it's only a few miles from me. I go to Ft. Drum once a month to do groceries. It's a trip but well worth it. I go by Nana Monster as my grandaughter likes to call us Nana and Papa Monster. She's a cutie and will be turning 5 soon. I

yes...I've been to the festival.  I live in Fulton now, but lived for many years in Oswego.  We were just at O'Conners in Fairhaven last week for dinner.  Small world!

If you live in Fulton, then you probably know where Hannibal is. I'm right off of Rte. 3. How long have you lived up this way?
I was born in Oswego then moved to Hannibal in 86. The weather forcast is for thunderstorms rolling through again...so I'm up a little achy. Don't want to give in to meds. going on 2 weeks without. Do you know St. Luke's Nursing Home in Oswego?

I was born in Syracuse...moved to Buffalo when I was 18, got married and moved to Oswego (Minetto) for 13 years where my ex worked at Alcan.  Moved to VA Beach for twelve years with new hubby then back to Fulton in 2003.  We go to Cooks Jewelers in Hannibal all the time...he is a friend of the hubby and they stand around a yak about fishing.  Yes...I know St. Lukes...used to visit a friend there.  Think NY State taxes may drive us out again!

More thunderstorms today and I am achy too.

My other half is retired military...Army. I love going to Drum as the prices are awesome on a lot of things. They just redid the commisary and it's HUGE!!!
 
I've been working at St. Luke's for 10 years now. At breakfast and lunch I do all the tray checking  then to the dishroom.
My youngest son is a taxi driver in Syracuse. He's been with Belavia for about 8 years or so.
 
My brother-in-law retired out of Alcan (now Novelis). Out of curosity did he know D J Ketcham? Deej passed away in January from cancer. He was diagnosed last fall and it got him fast. He was such a sweetie and he treated everyone so good. Miss the kid.
 
Willis Cook is a real nice guy. The arthritis got him so bad. His wife is blind  so it's got to be hard on him trying to get her around. I know I see them at DEBZ diner in Fairdale every now and then.
 
I used to go to Minetto school when I was a kid. Do you know the corners of Furniss Road and West 5th St..the little white house on the corner is where I went to the 2 room school. If you go to Rathburn then you will see I walked uphill both ways.
 
Small world........

Nana, I was born in Watertown, New York and my family were early settlers that had property where Ft. Drum is now.  It is a small world.  As a small child, I lived in Phoenix.

I don't recall a D.J Ketcham but I divorced my first husband in the late 80's, then he went to the Terre Haute plant and just retired this year.  I talk to him all the time though, and I'll ask him.  Willis is amazing.  After my mom died he fixed a diamond ring for me and it was unreal how he manipulated those twisted fingers around the small prongs.

My kids went to the new Minetto school on Granby road...I know furness and 5th street though.

Yes...it is a small world...I go to the farmers market in Oswego and walk by St. Lukes to sit by the river on Thurday nights.

If it was in the 80's it would be Richard and David Ketcham. My ex-in-laws.
 
I go back to work on Monday which is the only reason I'm on the computer during the days. I'm going to head outdoors and try to mow some more. I got in nearly 4 hours yesterday and 3 the day before. Since I fell I couldn't mow and the weeds got over 2 feet tall. Since I do it with a push mower (I've upgraded to a 22") it's a lot of yard. I've got about 1/3 of it back and have a lot more to go.
 
I love Watertown and in the spring when it thaws the falls in Black River is awesome.   Have you ever been to Theresa?
The statue in the town square is my best friend's grandfather.
 
Maybe sometime if I do a double I'll look out the highrise window and see you by the river. They've hired 6 new kids so overtime is rare again. I haven't been to the farmer's market yet but can't wait until the tomatoes come out. YUM

My great, great grandparents lived in Theresa and are buried there.  I have a lot of history up there.  Henry Coffeen was a grandfather of mine...you know, Coffeen Street in Watertown?  I think there is a statue of him in the town square, too.

Sherrine,
     It was Betty's great grandfather, Joe Howland whose statue is in the square. He founded the Howland church there.
Her dad was George Howland that had a dairy farm up there.
     I know Coffeen St.   We go down it sometimes when we go up there.   Have you been to the new Wal-Mart outside the base? The thing is so big.  I haven't been in it in a few months, maybe the next time we go up to do groceries.
     My fav eating place up there is the Cracker Barrel. It's so much different in atmosphere than the one in Clay. One of the older waitresses has been to the Ren Festival a few times so she knows how far we drive.  Maybe see you up in the area sometime.

Vestabula,
     Who is your GP in the area? I go to Northway Medical but am getting tired of $120 an office visit. I thought of looking for a new cheaper (?) one. He wants me to undergo "are you depressed?"  treatment. I don't understand why they would want to push that stuff on a person. Me....I'm not depressed. Now that I get better sleep I'm not so *****y and moody.
I never realized that not getting the deep REM mode made that much of a difference. rolleyes

Nana, I go to in Oswego.  I have never had to wait for an appointment and am told I can come in the same day I call.  He is a rheumatologist, but his sign outside his office says Intenal and Geriatric medicine.  The Hubby plays tennis with him twice a week and he is a very nice and caring man.  He might go to St. Lukes, now that I think of it, as he visits the nursing/assisted living homes every morning.

Donna

Donna, could you email Nana this information?  I just feel uncomfortable having doctor's names on the open forum.  Some might be fine with that and other might not be!  We don't want any problems for HealingWell.

I did check and her email is in her profile.  Thanks!

I'll check and see if he's taking new patients. I don't like Dr. and seems to be going downhill. Between that and their new outrageous bills I'm definately looking.
 
Love this weather? Raining again. I woke up and hurt. Took my morning Super cissus, played computer for a bit. waiting for them to kick in and went back to sleep.  Tomorrow it's back to the REAL world. This vacation has been nice and needed but in the morning at 4 in the morning the alarm will be going off and I'm back to work.
 
Thanks again for the info.
                                            NANA
 
I took out your doctors' names, Nana.  That could leave HealingWell open to a lawsuit.

This is the worst summer ever.  Our back yard is a swamp and hasn't been mowed in two weeks...took the tractor out to try the other day and the wheels sunk and had to  push it back to the garage.  It definetely makes the fibro ache worse.  My hip and leg are killing me and I can't get any sleep.
My DIL goes to  and I tried her once and didn't care for  at all.  Try ...I am sure he will take you.

Donna and Nana, please email each other with the names and specifics.  I feel very uncomfortable having doctors' names hanging out in a open forum.  They may or may not appreciate it.  Actually, it's not good to put anyone's name out there.  Anyone in the world can read what we put on the forum and it will also show up in Google!  The name I used in this thread was my grandfather who died in the middle 1800's.  I don't worry about things like that.  I don't want problems for HealingWell.  Thanks!
