December 16 – Happy Birthday Tom DiCaprio

293426_2135396876994_391451_nWhen I think of Tom DiCaprio a bunch of nice things pop into my mind…

…We have to move our point of reference up to the beautiful Sacandaga Reservoir to describe a third thing I think of when I hear Tom’s name. Its his perfectly maintained Bayliner Cruiser, which he christened the Lady Di Two in honor of his beloved first mate for the past 35 years, his wife Diane. From Memorial Day until Labor Day (and a little earlier to a bit later if Mother Nature cooperates) you will find Tom in a bathing suit with some sort of libation in his hand behind the wheel or on the deck of his beloved boat. I don’t think there’s a better spokesperson for making the Sacandaga the summer place to be than today’s Birthday Celebrant. He absolutely loves being on and around that body of water with his family and huge flotilla of friends…

I’ve already started work on the second volume of “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam Birthdays” and Tom DiCaprio will be one of those current or former Amsterdam residents to be featured in it. I will be sharing the complete posts of some of the Volume II birthday celebrants in my Amsterdam Birthday Blog Newsletter, which is distributed every month.
