2002 Chautauqua

Chautauqua, New York – an adult education center and resort – visited by Uibles occasionally through the years.

Captioned:  ATHENAEUM HOTEL - Serving guests in style since 1881, the Athenaeum Hotel, located at the world famous Chautauqua Institution, is listed on the National Historic Register.  The "Grande Dame" was the first hotel in the world to have electric lights.
This is our house for five nights on an internet "deal"??  We have been eating out on the hotel porch.

Sorry I don't have your new address but sure your parens will get it to you.  This is where we use the internet to send our emails.
Left Chautauqua on Friday and went to Corning where we saw [furnace?] glass, Seneca Falls where Women's Movement began about 154 [in 1848] years ago.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Georgia in less than two weeks by the time you get this.
Love to all your family, G'pa & G'ma Uible

HH reports: that 2002 trip to "C" was iffy as your Mother was having some health issues then. It turned out OK. When we are younger we think there will always be a tomorrow.
