Can you believe it's August already? Wow, Part Two of Summer is about to begin! Looks like this will be kind of a quiet weekend around Albany, so head over to the Stratton VA Hospital and attend the "Honor Our Vets Car and Motorcycle Show" on Saturday, from 10:00-3:00--it should be a good show and if the weather cooperates, it will be a great way to spend the day.
