Additions and Corrections

I should have added that the Name Tappan Zee comes from the name of the Tappan Indian Tribe that lived in the area and the Dutch word for wide expanse of water  “Zee”

Some time ago I had pictures of Terns which I called Turns. Since I was taught spelling by nuns it was probably their fault. The good news is that a member of that same order gleefully brought the misspelling to my attention.

4 days on LI and NYC, Memories etc

We took 17 south to the Thruway. There was a steady stream of garbage trucks presumably going to our home town dump in Perinton. Keeps our taxes down.


Sticker shock just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge. Saw diesel at $4.75 on Long Island.
