We left behind the memories of Mike’s “Glory Days” (cue Springsteen song) and passed by the largest roll of Lifesavers. Then parked on a street corner to observe an awesome monument to the armed services. It seemed appropriate on the 4th of July. We rolled on down the backroads towards the small town of Hume, New York. We made a stop at an Amish roadside stand and scored some fantastic pickles and fresh eggs When we arrived in Hume, we settled in to a sweet, backyard parking space and visited with family members a bit. It just happens that the guy we came to visit has some really, really awesome sons. Just do a search for The Barry Brothers Band ( http://www.thebarrybrothers.com )and you will find some great musicians. But this family is also battling cancer from two angles (dad and granddaughter). So take a look at this great video https://www.youtube.com/watchv=xVFGJNJf2tc for a glimpse of their efforts!
We enjoyed our typical camp breakfast while sitting near the largest, upper falls at Letchworth State Park and then returned to our spot in the backyard in Hume. The time here has given us a chance to do some laundry, buy some groceries, sleep in , ride bikes to town for lunch and attend a small, local car show.
We are hanging around here for a few reasons:
1. These are great folks to hang out with.
2. Mike is enjoying spending some time with his old friend.
3. We are going to see the Rolling Stones on Saturday in Buffalo!
