Monday - Corning to Danbury

Driving through New York State to Danbury by way of New Jersey is a beautiful drive. New York has some gorgeous big farms and rolling hills - real hills - much bigger than our hills. We picked up a cache in New Jersey before we got to Danbury.

Danbury, Connecticut is right on the state line. The city limit sign is right next to the Welcome to Connecticut sign. It's a very nice place - the home of Western Connecticut State University. Driving around looking for caches we saw some absolutely gorgeous big homes on streets with names like Nursery Road and New Road. We had a great time driving around that palatial area - we found a cache called the Bennett Tree cache.

Also, at St. Peter Church in Danbury there is a cemetery that began in 1684.

Yesterday a gout attack overtook me, and today I realized that I was going to need some meds for gout. The pharmacies all said that there was nothing over the counter for gout and that my doctor would have to phone in a prescription. Well that's what happened. I called Dr. Burke around 2 p.m. and before 4:30 Barbara called and said that she had just called in the prescription to the CVS Pharmacy that I had told her about. So now I have the meds, and I'm hoping that will take care of it! The Pharmacy was very helpful as well.

Dick wasn't pleased with the motel because we couldn't access the internet there, and they had a bad breakfast. I kind of liked the recliner, though! It felt good to elevate my toe!

This is Mother's birthday. If she were alive, she would be 100 years old today!
