It has been a great holiday weekend so far. I started off by flying up to NYC for Friday evening, dinner and a trip to the top of the Empire State Building and Times Square. After Manhattan, I took a bus to Binghamton NY. Talking to the bus driver I learned he has been driving that particular route for 25 years. Amazing. We saw a bear on the side of the road on RT 17th. I was not fast enough with the camera. Driving that route for 25 years that was only the second time he had seen a bear. "I'd rather go by bus." --Prince Charles My farm looks good. There are lots of animals there and they are well cared for. A walk through the woods was very refreshing. I expect to close on my place in Duluth by the end of June.
