Hope you'll join us.---Lee (Photo © Lee Zett 2011)

      When you arrive late to events you hold up the group because we wait for attending members to arrive. You were considered a No Show for the Massapequa walk.

    Pete, you took such great photos and the candid ones were so great. Unfortunately, I never went to the rehearsals for the Rockettes so my clodhoppers had problems and lifting the correct let was a problem. We had such a happy group on this walk and Mother Nature really had a lot to do with it. Oh, yeah, Lee, thank you for sending us great weather and what a difference from last Sunday. Great seeing everyone, if I didn't mention that before. I gotta go, writer's cramp.

      I guess I have to watch out for you Mr. Pete... the man with the roaming camera... Some of the pictures of me... were very... how do you say... Candid... to say the very least...:)

      Lynne, you looked great in those phtotos.

    The Massapequa Preserve is one of my favorite spots for a Walk. The trails are paved for the most part, which makes it an easy trek through a beautiful and peaceful area. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to take a walk, as Mother Nature really made it a good one for us! Thanks to Lee for being such a good leader, and not letting anyone fall too far behind the rest of the group. Late lunch at the diner was a plus. All in all, a very good way to spend an afternoon!

    1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      I definitely have to agree with everything you said, Kathi and I am glad you were able to make this walk. This walk is one my favorites too and due to the Massapequa Preserve being so beautiful, peaceful and full of nature, it was a very good way to spend with everyone in an afternoon. Mother Nature really stepped in nicely with our day. Also, Lee did very well moving from the front and the middle that everyone caught up with him and very little laggers left behind. Lunch was definitely a plus as always and I hope you made your appointment on time. Good seeing you Kathi.

      Right back at you, Loren! Have a great day.

    What a great walk... It was so nice to see everyone again. The weather was perfect, the conversation interesting, and the food at the diner delicious... I intend to start making at least 2 walks a month in the coming year.

    I have Googled the address given for this meetup but I'm still unclear where to park as I don't see any lots by ocean & merrick rd - the only lots I see are by sunrise highway ... any specific help is greatly appreciated as I have never been to this preserve ... thanks

    Sorry to miss this. Woke up with a migraine.

    Hi everyone sorry I won't be able to make it I have Laryngitis.

    December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      Impossible with the sound of silence in this group. Talking and walking is our motto.

      1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      Lorraine, you were missed yesterday and if you had brought Fiona, she would have fit in so well with the other doggies out there. Too bad Linda B. had to step into doggie poop out there, not pleasant. Anyway, I hope you solve your Laryngitis problem because we need your vocal cords on Tuesday. I am suffering right now from writer's cramps so see you on Tuesday. LOL!!!!

    Beautiful!

    • Loren

      It was so great seeing you, Nori, two days in a row too. What a difference in the weather from Saturday to Sunday. You and I were so bundled up on Saturday that I couldn't even see anyone on either side of my face with a hat on. It was so great to shed the winter coat yesterday on a beautiful day with beautiful people like yourself. Great seeing you, Nori.

      December 2, 2013

    It was a perfect walking day today - we covered a lot of ground in record time ! Lots of fun at Massapequa dinner - great food too! Thank you Lee and Loren!

      It was great seeing you, Ann, and you are such a happy and positive person and it is so cool. I am glad that you enjoyed that fresh brewed cup of coffee at the diner yesterday. You looked like you were in heaven drinking it. See you on Tuesday and we will have a great day.

    Beautiful fall day. It was more like Spring then Fall. Good vigorous walk. Conversations great as usual with a wonderful group of people. Great day

    1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      It definitely felt more like a Spring day and I didn't wear my Winter coat. It was a great day being with wonderful people and Henry, I am so happy to see you come back again and again for more fun. Great seeing you and we will see you on Tuesday unless you get a job or I get one as well.

  • Ilana

    This was a wonderful walk that I was so happy to be part of. The Preserve is beautiful, the water fowl made it interesting, and the delightful weather was the icing on the cake. And, a fun time was had by all at the diner.

    1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      I am so happy that you were able to attend our walk and you had a perfect day for it. It was great seeing you, Ilana, and glad you are feeling much better. I was sorry to hear that your Chanukah party was cancelled but it is good that you will be able to have it postponed to another day and don't forget to let us taste your delicious Latkes. Looking forward to it and looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Be well.

Hope to do more of it when I have a day off....see you soon

    1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      I am sorry what you went through on your way to the park and yes I got all your text messages but sorry I didn't have access to it until the end of the walk. I am so glad that you found us by the bathroom area and you were not a NO SHOW. Everyone doesn't like a NO SHOW. You even have a no show member who posted up a photo, interesting, LOL!!!!!! Have fun on going back to work and see you next time.

    An absolute beautiful and perfect day for our walk at the Massapequa Preserve. What a difference we had from last Sunday's weather to this Sunday. Massapequa Preserve is one of my favorite walks and so much to see and so pretty. We had a great group and fun. It was so great seeing Lynne and I am glad she came on this walk with us. I am so glad that Ilana ended having a free day and it was good she signed up for this walk as well. We had a great time at the Massapequa Diner and we were very loud, lol!!!!! Lots of Gerry's jokes again and they were very funny. So, before I have writer's cramps, it was great seeing everyone and enjoying the beautiful walk we had.

      Trust me by the end of the weekend, I had major hand cramps, LOL!!!!!!! :)

  • Linda B

    Great walk on a great day!!! Unfortunately, I stepped in some poop which prevented me from going to the Massapequa Diner. Otherwise, this was a 5+ day.

    2 · December 1, 2013

    • Lee Z.

      That's it, no poop jokes? C'mon people, you can do better than that.

      1 · December 1, 2013

    • Loren

      With all those dogs at that park, not one person out there had a pooper scooper. Well, good thing Linda didn't step on a mouse or you would have to distribute the parts like Nick did, funny.
