The weekend was perfect.
We left the 'burg in the 9 seat twin prop sardine can nearing sunset. The ride was smooth as silk.
50 minutes after take off, we sighted Vangogh's Albany municipal airport and landed as lightly as a mosquito on an arm.
Michelle and Josh were waiting for us and after picking up Di's bag we motored a short ride to the Koto Japanese restaurant for a dinner prepared expertly at the Hitachi bar. We were an hour early for our reservation,but they had openings for us then so we were seated right away with 5 other folks.
the entertaining chef served us as quick as a flitting butterfly and everything was delicious, especially the fried rice: sublime.
Diane and 'chelle had pomatinis and said they were devine.
The next morning dawned bright and frigid. While Josh warmed up the chariot for our trip to Home Depot, I shot some pics of the new house. The place is nicely laid out; warm and inviting and the house is situated in a postcard looking neighborhood. We spent a portion of the day hanging wall decorations; mostly pictures, paintings etc.
Our niece, Jessica, who lives nearby came to join us for dinner and after I introduced her to Lemoncello, she decide to spend the night in the other guest bedroom.
Breakfast the next morning was sorely needed by all to off set the logy feeling produced by a combination of wine, sambucca, and lemoncello.
The flight home was a little bumpier but for the hour it took, not bad. We had to double up passengers from the Massena flight since they were short a plane so the flight was full. So full, that Di rode in the co-pilot's seat.
