Christmas postcard from Etna, NY
I remember years ago you would be watching a football game and this ad for Bud would come on, big horses pulling a cart full of beers through pretty little hill towns. Its like that cart full of beers was going down our street, it looks exactly like that here. Above, walking Penny at our park. Below, across the river looking back at our purple house there and our back yard. You can see all kinds of ducks and geese down there, our house up the slope a bit.
Looking toward the bridge and Mt Pleasant in the distance.
Etna has a post office, bus stop, a park, a cemetery and a church. I do not go to this church, but it is simple and pretty looking, about 200 years old.
I made my wife's aunt Connie's plum torte with apples...actually, probably her grandmother's recipe. Copy of it below....
The lions shall lie down with lambs, OR the beagle will lie down with the grey tiger and use him for a pillow......
Rudolf the red nosed Gary. had a one day cold. Good excuse to do NOTHING.
BTW, sez here bake about an hour. More like 30-35 minutes, until golden brown!
