Grande Old Dame

Today, I went to The Grande Old Dame Turns 29-U geocaching event at Goodfellas Inn in East Fishkill, NY. It was a birthday celebration for Planet. We had birthday cake and also a sampler of appetizers from the restaurant. In addition, I ordered fish and chips for myself to fill my weekend fried fish quota. :)

Did some geocaching on my way up North. There was still snow and ice on the ground up in Putnam and Dutchess Counties, but the caches, at least the regular-sized ones, didn't seem any more difficult to find than usual. Of course, I had the benefit of following the tracks of some geocachers who were there earlier in the day.

After the event, we all went to do the "Gaos" cache, which was a night cache with a trail of reflectors to follow. The trail was rather slippery with all that ice and snow, but none of us fell off the hill or anything. Naturally, the locals were a bit puzzled as to why there were suddenly 11 cars parked at the end of that dead-end road at night and a police officer did appear on the scene to check things out. Fortunately, Worf's Pack was good at 'splaining.

On my way home, I used a Burger King coupon in Park Ridge.

Before heading out this morning, I checked my filing system (really just all the envelopes tossed into a filing cabinet drawer) and found that last 1099-DIV form that I was missing. The trouble was it wasn't in an envelope by itself. It was sent to me as an insert tucked in with the last quarterly statement of the year, so I didn't put in the special tax folder. So I should be able to finish the taxes soon. (Not that there's any hurry because there's still over a month to go before the deadline.)
