Another Amazing Week…Disneyworld, Florida

Always changing, always magical – not to mention the seriously joyful impression on young grandchildren. Walt’s World is truly awesome.

Site of a local pheasant hatchery for early to mid twentieth century hunters is where we occasionally walk Sandy Paws, our now 13 year old Shih-tzu. She has never exceeded the speed limit.

Changing Seasons and Summer Memories

Eleven years ago this week, returning to New Jersey from a business trip to Rhode Island, I stopped by this charming little 19th century coastal community known as Watch Hill, RI. Among the shuttered and closed buildings was this Book and Tackle shop

At the time, I wrote of the town’s story and the unique practice of the shop,  its signage asking  patrons to simply take what thay want… and leave a payment under the door.

Although more extensive, and unwanted development never occured, the Book and Tackle Shop, as seen to the left above, is now gone.

The Seaside Merry-Go-Round stood empty, stripped of its carousel figurines and “summer glow and song.”

The Pumpkin Patch

 

It’s pretty simple. Sow some pumpkin seeds, and watch the flowers grow…
