We went to airport and Bonnie dropped me off to pick up
rental car for the trip to JFK airport. The first car was going to be far too

After we settled in we went to the coop to get some necessities, Rugen Brau and some munchies.
Coming back from the CO-OP; CO-OP is their local super market. It is small but has all that we will need.

Enjoying a cold one waiting for dinner.
