Donna-Lane and I are on a 'Nostalgia Tour' of New England. First we visited Johnson City, New York, where my 91-year-old mother still lives in the same house where I grew up. We also attended my 45th high school reunion and got re-acquainted with a few friends I haven't seen since graduation.
Of course, we stopped at Lupo's Char-Pit, where I cooked spiedies one summer during college. (Again, Sam, sorry I ate up most of the profits.)
We also visited the old Cider Mill, where we watched them make the fresh cider and donuts and took some pumpkin pictures.

We stopped briefly in southeast Massachusetts, where we saw a couple of college friends of D-L's whom she had not seen in more than 40 years: http://theexpatwriter.blogspot.ch/2014/09/voices.html. They served us an amazing lunch, including my first whole lobster (hey, I grew up well inland - the freshest fish was a week old).
Now we're touring the Boston area, visiting more old friends, and tomorrow D-L will show me some of the places where she grew up in Reading, MA.
