this weekend so we is "recycling" parts of a post from da past!
Here is Janelle and Tony, my mom and dad
(This picture was taken while they was on vacation in New Hampshire)
Mom and dad met in the late 80's through a mutual friend and have been together ever since.
Dad was born and raised in Albany NY and has worked as a mechanic all his life.
His dad and his grandpa were also mechanics and dad now owns the business that has been in the family since 1919. He is a very hard worker and an excellent mechanic. When you own your own business you work long hours but when mom and dad find time to go away together it is usually on their motorcycles. Dad has been riding for over 45 years, mom for about 6 years. They own 5 Harley Davidsons (4 for him 1 for mom) and keeps them in our garage. Their favorite places to go are the New Hampshire and Maine coasts, both of them luvs the ocean!
Dad is an avid football fan and his favorite team is the NY Giants.
Mom was born in Mankato Minnesota and as a child her family moved around a lot (due to her dad's job) before settling in NY. After high school, she worked in a dental office for a while, went to college, then got a job at an Insurance Company where she worked for over 20 years but now due to the company
going bankrupt because the owner did illegal stuff closing she is unemployed has "retired", but according to her, is busier than ever taking care of her mom and dad's dad and me of course. : )
Mom is very active in her church and likes to read in her spare time (loves her nook) and of course ride da Harley. Mom does volunteer work at a homeless shelter and a health clinic in Albany, plus each summer spends a week at a children's camp in the Adirondack Mountains of NY where she volunteers in the kitchen. Because dad works lots mom does travel without him sometimes, usually with her sisters and/or mom to visit family and friends.
Mom is also an avid football fan but her favorite team has and always will be the Minnesota Vikings!
Dad is an only child, his dad (grandpa) lives next door to us but his mom lives at a nursing home, she has Alzheimer's disease. Mom's dad passed away 22 years ago but her mom (grandma) lives about 15 miles away from us. Mom has an older brother and two younger sisters that all live close by with their families.
Mom and dad don't have any two leggers of their own but mom has 3 nieces and a nephew that range in age from 8 to 18. They loves those kids like they was their own and they likes to spoil them too. : )
Have a wonderful and safe holiday!
Woofs and Licks,
