My cabin in upstate New York

 

 

 


These two photos were taken in 1985, when the cabin was still under construction.  The whole front and side have now been landscaped.

 

 

The Driveway from Hell.  This photo does not do it justice. It's about 300 yards long and sits at about a 45 degree angle. Requires strong calf muscles or a 4-wheel drive.  When I introduce myself to people in town and they ask which house on Silver Hollow Road is mine, I simply say "I'm the one with the driveway."  They immediate know which one I'm talking about.
The aforementioned Driveway From Hell, only this time in winter, with the car parked at the bottom on the hill, as when the heavy snow and ice hit, the driveway becomes a luge.
I have no idea whose baby this is or where it came from. That comfortable sofa on the right, looking out through the picture window, is where I spend most of my waking hours.

 

Me, opening a Christmas present, circa 1987.  That "bookcase" on the right is a ladder from the New York Public Library that I bought at an auction.
The back deck in winter.  Note the similarity to the still frame (below) from the film "Dr. Zhivago."  Same concept, only without Omar Sharif.
