Trip to Philadelphia 2016
Hey folks, more video compilations! I finally figured out to put these memory video and photo compilations together. I am so relieved to now be able to put some of my 91,000 plus photos and videos together for access long after I'm gone. I know I kid about it all the time, but I actually don't have that many days left here on earth. One thing that has bothered me was that all my videos and photos will be lost once I'm gone. Now I don't feel that way.
Now, this video compilation is from my annual spring trip to Philadelphia. I don't remember exactly what happened that Pat wasn't with me on the trip up, after all it was two years ago. Last year and this year Pat takes a bus from Canada to Philly then rents a car and drives down here where I live in southern Delaware. He spends a few days here then we drive up to Philly for a week's stay at a suite I rent at my friend Don McKenzie's co-op in Philly. At the end of the week Pat leaves by bus back to his home in Hamilton, Ontario. My neighbor Bill B. picks me up in Philly and drives me back to home here in Sussex County, Delaware.
On this video I drove up Rt. 896 to one of our favorite restaurants in Kelton, PA called "Daddy's Kitchen". They make the best wraps.
Then I visited Downingtown, my hometown. I visited the cemetery where my parents are buried. Also friends who have passed.
Then I took a train from Downingtown to center city Philly where I met a former co-worker Tom J.
We had lunch at one of me and Pat's favorite restaurant, the Marathon Grill. I kept in touch with Pat via FaceTime. Pat came down a few days later. That visit will be in another video.
My friend Larry M. picked me up at Don's.
Nothing earth shattering about this blog post folks other than an excuse to post another one of these video compilations, which I LOVE doing.
