My partner refers to where I grew up in Stony Brook, Long Island as a "Snow Globe Village" and I tend to agree with her. Located about an hour and a half from NY on the north shore of Long Island. Here is a pic of the local post office and on every hour the Bald Eagle flaps it's wings!

THIS IS WHERE WE MAILED 16 POUNDS OF CLOTHING AND OTHER STUFF BACK HOME. WE OVER PACKED AND HAVE LEARNED A LESSON FOR NEXT TRIP!




My family is shy and did not want a lot of pics posted of them for fear of becoming too famous!

Is that your dad's '57 oldsmobile? Nice!
