Today I am celebrating a visit to my 87 year old mother in ‘Upstate’ for which read ‘northwestern’ New York state.
The location is Keuka Lake, one of the glacier-born Finger Lakes of new York, famous for wines.
It is a stunning spot, as this photo shows, bordered by vineyards.

Mom is handling her second year of widowhood with her usual courage and aplomb. Dad probably found her a charming handful She always loved him (exasperatedly) but recently she has said, “You know, Diana – he made sure I was provided for.”
That he did.
So I’m heading to Penn Yan NY (so-named because it was settled by Pennsylvanians and Yankees, and the name was a whole lot better than its original, which was ‘Hellzapoppin’.
What are you celebrating?
