Saratoga Racetrack, Saratoga Springs, New York, 2007

Millie and I went up to Saratoga Springs, New York at the kind invitation of Dr Ray Palmer and his wife Deanne, who were the perfect hosts. Also present were Dr. Fred Selzer and Sharon and Dr. Gerry Blumenfeld and his wife Roz. We spent a lovely 2 days at historic Saratoga Racetrack, the oldest racetrack in the United States and home of the famous Traver's Stakes. We had a great time (sort of like "A Day at the Races" with the four Marx Brothers!) and hope to meet with them all again in the future. Here is a small chronicle of our wonderful visit. Thanks for a great time Ray and Dee!
