Get down watertown. When we lived there, we would hit happy hour every Friday at the Carriage house. They had free food, cheap drinks and always an interesting band. The one night we were there and as everyone was busting a move on the dance floor, the lead singer screamed into the microphone, "Get down watertown." It is a line I will never forget. Bob and I still say that all the time.
I moved to watertown in January of 99 after I graduated from OSU. Bob moved there a few months earlier as an Army Officer, stationed at Fort Drum. In April of 2002, we made the move back to Cleveland. When we left, some of our friends had the best farewell gifts. Jen at Charlton's World made us a book, full of pictures and captions from all the fun times we shared together. The front of the book says:
A BOOK DEDICATED TO THE FRIENDSHIPS THAT BOB & AMANDA HAVE CREATED IN WATERTOWN, NY. WE LOVE YOU AND YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED.
There's pages from our 1st x-mas party, Bob's promotion party, New Years 2002 & the goodbye party for Bob and I. The photo above shows a page from the book. I was hoping to share more, but blogger isn't letting me upload the other pages. I love this book and look through it often. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. Happy b.c we have so many awesome memories and made so many great friends there that we still keep in touch with. Sad because we don't get to see everyone enough (or at all, really.) But thanks to technology...blogs, email, fotologs, etc, it feels like we aren't all so far away.
Happy Friday! Tonight Bob and I get to go out for a few hours w/out the babies. His friend Damon and his wife are in town from Florida (has everyone moved to Florida??) so we are going to go meet them for a few cocktails. Cheers to the weekend.
