The End of an Era?

With so many Post Offices closing due to the failing economy and other ways of communication in our ever changing world, I thought it only fitting to point you all in the direction of a great blog that covers the history of the Post Office. US Postal History I hope they don't do away with home delivery and make us all get P.O. Boxes!

A Garden Grows

Those who know me know that I have a brown thumb. I have killed more house plants than any other person on this planet. I just recently tried to fertilize my beautiful assortment of thriving porch plants - and killed all but one. (Must have been the OLD fertilizer I used.) So, to see this garden ACTUALLY PRODUCE VEGETABLES, is a blessing from above. Please say prayers, cross fingers, etc. that it will continue to do so. Thank you!

Sometimes there are just no words to describe....

Heritage Museum and Gardens

The Sandwich Heritage Museums and Gardens was such a wonderful experience! Not only are the grounds and gardens exceptionally beautiful, the different museums were interesting and well cared for. From the Antique Car Museum, Art Museum (with a working carousel!)to the American History Museum, there was almost too much to see in one visit! I've posted some pics for a few of you (Buck - the antique motorcycles, Lou - some artwork, Jim - some antique guns) but I hope you enjoy seeing all of the photos. There was a labyrinth, a maze and a gorgeous flume, and check out the next to the last pic, a not so shy butterfly posed for several seconds so I could get the shot! It was a great day!
