Escape from New York

Jen and Tom had no intention of staying in New York during the Republican National Convention (let alone the US Open, and homegames for the Mets & Yankees). It was determined that Ohio was far enough away.

Jen went to school in Ohio and swore that she would never return. But she had gone too long without seeing her friend Marsha and her daughter, Emily.

Tom, on the other hand, had actually been begging to visit Ohio. Specifically, Sandusky. Not for the corn, but for the roller coasters at Cedar Point. So exciting are the world famous coasters, that Jen and Tom's friend Skull had to come along for the trip (at least the three days in Sandusky). Our host Matt also joined for one of the days.

Jersey Golfin'

Oru friend Elizabeth seems to get really excited about golf...that is until she gets off the first tee. But that seems to be the lot for golfers. She'll learn that soon. We all seem to get one shot per outing that reminds us why we like chasing a tiny white ball around with a stick.

Here, Tom is showing off his prowess with a driver. After this shot, he changed to using a 2 iron.

Clear Ice

Several months ago at a business dinner, somehow, the coversation turned to the topic of "ice". My friend Greg educated us all on the wonders of "clear ice" and how it differed from the typical stuff found in our freeze.
