So what is the etymology of "causeway?" It has to do with heels and sheep.
Here is a photo from an earlier visit to the Causeway.

Ken took me for a ride this morning. We went to the outskirts of Sycamore and then past Oak Crest, where Ted Rodd spent the end of his life.
Yesterday we took a 3 hour break in Kinderhook, MI. Linda went for a walk and I took a ride.
Since I didn't know where I was going, I called her whenever I made a turn. This turned out to be a bad idea. She was not enjoying playing support. Next time I'll do and out-and-back while she walks.

Sol Krongelb has a postcard dated December 13, 1912, from my great-grandfather Wolf Jacobowitz to his son, my grandfather Elias Jacobowitz at 7 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, NY. This is the address of the cigar store Elias managed with his brothers.

The return address is 112-14 E. 111th Street, NYC. Pretty far from the Lower East Side. The text is in Yiddish. The language is formal, in that Wolf signs his full name.

Day 3 took us to Chambly (see the rapids, fort, and canal) and then to Longueuil, where there is a bike/ped ferry that takes you to downtown Montreal. We rode up the hill to the Crown Plaza, which is right on the route of le Tour de l'Île de Montréal.
(I left my fanny pack with wallet, money, id, and passport at a rest stop and I had a serious panic before Charlene called and confirmed that the support folks found it.)
