I had to look again. My sister sent me this window scene she saw on one of her morning walks around New York City.
And then my sister just sent me a photo from her Hudson River Walk today in New York City
You know I’m always trying to cull the memorabilia around my home. Glad I saved this one as I found it again just in time for today.
This is a birthday card from my mother and father wishing me a happy Fourth of July birthday. The year I turned eleven. 1963. I looked on the back and it’s a Norcross card for 25 cents. I was visiting my godmother in Maybelle, Colorado that birthday. My mother wrote “What a life.to have a ride on a super jet.” The red words are raised and flocked.
A cool find while cleaning out papers in the desk.. my dad’s lengthy messages inside includes an itinerary for my brother’s trip to Philmont Ranch in New Mexico with the Boy Scouts.
There is also a lovely card from my sister from this year, too. Happy Birthday to me😀
I got a text that my friend saying she was in the driveway. She’d brought a bag of homegrown lettuce from her garden. I sat on the side porch stoop, she stayed in her car. We talked a bit. Thanks for the delicious lettuce, Joan. You wrapped it so carefully in the wet towels. It was crispy and refreshing. Summer.
Mary Alta Kerr Hendricks on the right. My father’s mother. Don’t know who the other two women are. Lincoln, Illinois.
Another guest blog today.
The New York Public Library Lions don masks.
My sister has taken the role of a NYC tourist as she walks in the city and today she photographed Patience and Fortitude. They’re carved from pink Tennessee marble, designed by sculptor Edward Clark Potter.

Sunday afternoon of Gay Pride Weekend in New York City, taken from my sister’s window.
My sister told me about this Baker’s Edge Brownie Pan so I ordered one for Anna. (and the family)
Anna was headed to work today and said when she got home at ten, it would nice to have a brownie.
Maura made a batch and I got to see the pan do what it claims to do. And it does it perfectly. All edges!
Which is your preference? Edge? Center? Or Pass?
