In which - just a bunch of random photos

This is me on the top deck of the Vassar Hospital parking garage. We stopped by week before last to drop off some flowers for a friend's mom (who's now out and doing fine.)

That's the top of the main building behind me. It was just too crowded to get any good pics of the front entrance, so we didn't try.

Maddy said that there's one really odd thing about it now - what's now the lobby used to be a big courtyard in front of the entrance. Sometime between 1983 and 2002, they put a window wall around it and turned it into a new, larger lobby. The thing that makes it odd is that now several rooms in the Cardio-Thoracic Unit have a lovely view of the lobby instead of outside.

You can't beat the view from the parking deck, though. This is a nice moody shot of the Mid-Hudson Bridge.

That's Illinois Mountain, of NOAA Weather Radio transmitter fame, in the background. I think the taller one is the transmitter and the smaller one is a cellphone tower. (It's also the transmitter for the local classic rock station.)

The Hudson River.


And the Hudson again, this time from Cold Spring. This was taken about a month ago. Believe it or not, the sun actually does come out around here. It just wasn't out either of these two days.

It reminded Aura of Scotland, though, so it wasn't all bad. I asked her if she ever gets homesick, but she pointed out that she's a deva and can travel pretty much wherever and whenever she wants, almost by thought. I admit I'm a bit jealous of that. I think Maddy is, too. :)

Just a picture from near Beacon to prove that yes, we do have sun here.

More sun. Maddy usually makes taking these look easy. This one, not so much. I think she discovered a rock the hard way when she scraped her elbow on it.

She said it was worth it for these shots, though.

Pink? Purple? Purkle?

That last one sounds like a cross between a pug and a turtle. Or would that be a purgle?

Caterpillar girl. Trust me, there's one there even if it's not in the picture...
