Craig and his wonderful list

Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

An effort to return lost sunglasses, because "I know you are balling on a budget."

Upside: at least she's being honest. Downside: everything else.

Because, you know, how else would a person spend vacation?

Well, that is very straightforward.

This guy should probably just trim the bushes and call it a day.

We get the feeling "thanks" isn't really the emotion she was trying to convey.

She was like an angel.

On that midnight train to Albany...

She wants to mix it up with the guy who mixes paint.

They were at a movie -- but he was watching her, and she was... sleeping.

Those ski jackets must have been... warm.

At the risk of sounding hokey, I'm thankful for all the gifts Albany has given to me. When I moved here in 1988, I knew no one who lived here. Less than 30 years later, I have the most remarkable network of friends, associates and peers who have supported each of my endeavors be they educational, artistic, personal or business related. I met and married the father of my sons here, have had the opportunity to own my own house and business and can say with confidence that not a single day goes by when I don't feel a Smalbany connection with someone I encounter as I run, walk or drive around my neighborhood. I love you, Albany!
