A change in weather.

Yesterday my friend and I took a ride by Durand’s beach here in Irondequoit. There was definitely a change in the weather, we had to wear windbreakers. As you can see in the picture, there were some whitecaps in the water. Right now here in Rochester it’s 51 degrees.

Labor day, birthday!

Ran Out of Gas!

Morning Mark!
Right now in Rochester it’s 80 degrees and the humidity is 56 percent. Another hot one, yuck! All across the country we’ve been dealing with this heat wave and not much relief in sight.
And true to tradition people are running to the beach.
Yesterday while on the road I came across a family en route to the beach and they ran out of gas. (Old Chevy picture) But they called their Old Uncle Hank and he saved the day. He picked the family up and got them to the beach. (Old Caddy picture)

Antique excavating Grader!

Yesterday while on a run I discovered this relic. An antique grader, note there is no engine. This was a towed one. It’s age speaks for itself. 🙂

The days of yesterday!

Rochester history.

Here in Rochester, many famed industries were started as many of you know. One of them being Bausch & Lomb. It’s founders both lived here.
On Memorial day in 1932 a monument was constructed and dedicated for Henry Lomb honoring his service in the American Civil War. Lomb served as a sergeant, lieutenant, and captain. The monument sets in a meridian on Upper Falls Blvd and St. Paul street in front of the original Bausch & Lomb plant.
For over 30 years the lights were turned off for unknown reasons. But recently, just last Monday (Memorial day) thanks to donations from local merchants, the lights were back on.
It’s nice to see history continually honored as it should be.

Memorial Day History, Rochester!

Through the years, America has been involved in several forms of war-combat. Many of us here, in Mark’s news bureaus are most familiar with the Vietnam war. It’s within our age, time frame.

Here in Rochester next to the Monroe County Airport is a terminal for the National Guard chapter, And this old helicopter from Vietnam sets there.

I wanted to share this bit of history, picture with our readers and wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day!
