A couple of weeks back we were having dinner with Vivian and Stone and we discussed going upstate to their weekend house. Last weekend we took the Amtrak up to Rhinebeck New York. Vivian and Stone’s house is in Germantown, NY and I have to be honest. I am digging that part of the state. Now before you accuse Mary Louise and Paul Allen (My soap opera name) of drinking all day we actually took up some culture and attended the Thomas Cole Museum.
Thomas Cole is the founder of the Hudson River School who I understand doesn’t have a football team or team mascot. The house is interesting and I suggest that you have beers before visiting so you can have a sense of humor. Saturday night we went out to town and visited the local karaoke bar. A good time was had by all. Sunday we visited Hudson and took in some shopping before a good nap and dinner out on the town.

Thomas Cole House
So to make money the family had to sell off all the paintings and the majority of these were reproductions.
We didn’t go Cherry picking because of the heat
Love me some Nina Simone
We didn’t need to use the fireplace this weekend. It was kind of warm
Vivian and Stone have a great deck and great house.

Again thanks for a great weekend
