Oswego’s “Historic Maritime District”

Sunday, December 10, 2006

Out for a Sunday drive, we visited the H. Lee White Marine Museum in Oswego for its annual “Christmas at Sea” Open House. Rosemary Sinnett Nesbitt was acting as Mrs. Santa Claus. Greeting Mrs. Nesbitt I disclosed how once she gave my class a tour of Fort Ontario. With a smile she said, “Oh yes, I remember you.” The museum is extensive and also houses an underground railroad exhibit.

Adirondack Shootout

Friday, December 8, 2006

Cold weather and a great, hardpack snowy base on the runway created perfect conditions for posting fast stock times at the Snow Week/DynoTech Research Shootout in Woodgate, New York.

Although the temperature never broke over 7, it was a great way to jump start the snowmobile season.

A Child’s Christmas in Wales

This evening at 7:30 Joan and I experienced A Child’s Christmas in Wales as adapted by Polly Hogan at the Auburn Public Theater. The play featured Ron Ritchell, Polly’s husband of 35 years, as the the narrator, the voice of the poet Dylan Thomas.

The cozy space of APT and the simple but charming set brought the essence of Christmas to all those in attendance.

Let’s hope APT makes this production a Christmas tradition for Auburn.
