Saturday afternoon, Bruce and I met up with Kelly for lunch at the Distillery -- then we met up with Terry from the Rochester Rams to join my friend Luis (from work) for dinner at 6 o'clock at Esam on Park Avenue. If you have not eaten there, I highly reccomend it.
Saturday evening, I want to Jack Dyke's for a "wake"/party for Rich Richards (former president of the Rochester Rams [ http://www.rochesterrams.com/ ]) who passed away December 31st.
Saturday night (9pm) Lonnie (Bruce's roommate), Terry, Bruce and I drove to Syracuse, NY for Strengthening Our Ties ( http://journeymenltd.com/private/sot.html ) -- I was not feeling very well during the day, and by the time we got to Syracuse, my voice was all but gone. So, I got to hang out, but not say much. I got to see a lot of old friends -- many that didn't even know I moved to Boston! We drove home, and finially got to bed about 3:30am. What a day!
Sunday morning I went to breakfast with Jim, his wife and kids -- Jim's a friend from work that I really miss hanging out with now that I'm not there... At noon, I went to visit Johnny to take care of some unfinished business -- it was not fun. Then I went back to Bruce's to say good bye.
I slept on the flight back and had a quick, uneventful flight. I managed to pack a lot into this weekend! I was glad to get back to Rochester for a little while at least!
