Our friend Ray arrived this morning - good thing I waited out on the front deck for him so I could scream RAY! OVER HERE!! because David had given him directions. The only good thing about directions from David is you'll get the scenic tour. We're so glad to see him and as he said, when it's good friends it always feels like you just saw each other last week. We decided to go out for a late lunch early supper and found a nice restaurant that not only had good food, but was able to produce a fairly passable Stoli on the rocks with a twist of lemon. We took the scenic route home with David and Ray laughing about some areas we passed - Ray came up with David to look at houses when we bought here and they had a few adventures with getting lost and local dives. We stopped at Lake Wallenpaupack which is more like a bay than a lake. We also went to Hawley (the next 3 pictures) which is yet another old scenic town with some touristy things and loads of antiques. Ray will be staying til Tuesday I think - I go back to work on Monday but he and David have tons of catching up to do. The other thing that showed up today is in the 8th picture - that is NOT Mr. Lee (the 7ht picture is). We're pretty sure that little cat is a throw-away - he's thin, hungry and very affectionate. There's a large summer population so this would be the time of year for that sort of thing. I don't know how people can feed, care for and love an animal and then just leave it behind. We're giving it a couple of days, but Jackson's been thinking of names and I'm sure we'll be intergrating it into the house hold. Sigh. I guess we'll figure it out. We're going to be doing more sight seeing tomorrow, Ray's hoping to take some pictures of all the old barns around here if he can get David to stop the car!
