NY Vacation for Jim & Alex

Posted in Parish Family Events, Vacation FUN on August 27, 2009 by wizbandit

Alex and I drove up to NY for a the week of 8/7 to 8/17 for a bit of R&R.  I visited with dad and my Brother, we had BBQ on the grill every day consisting of Sausages, hamburgs, hotdogs, peppers, onions and fresh NY sweet corn.  The first two days were cold and stormy with rain & thunderstorms rolling through every hour.  The days following were nothing short of spectacular, days in the mid 80’s and nights in the 60’s, blue skies and bright sunshine.

We spent the last 5 days going to Sheldrake Point on Cayuga Lake everyday for BBQ, Beers and boating with some “tube-ing”.  Alex had a blast.  I rode the tube once and my brother could not resist flipping me off into the chilly lake water. No pics of that tho but I can still taste the lake water…

Graduation Day!

Posted in Parish Family Events on June 5, 2008 by wizbandit

Last evening my oldest son Michael J. T. Parish graduated from Tarpon Springs High School.  This occasion is the most important turning point in a young persons life. A sad point is that less than 2/3 of the enrolled Seniors graduated last night. Less than 400 out of some 600 made it. Michael’s mom and I are proud of him, the keys to the PHEV Prius were officially handed to him last night as his graduation present.  It was an outdoor ceremony at the football field and in Florida that means around 90 degrees, hot, muggy and beating down sun.
