Saturday afternoon, my sister and I were walking back from Battery Park with three of the grandchildren.
The kids were running ahead on the Dog Free Zone boardwalk.
We bumped into this wedding party taking photos so we doubled back to the concrete walk along the Hudson River where I took a quick picture.
The female attendants had to be freezing.
The Schuylkill River. Philadelphia.
On my way back to Pittsburgh from New York after a nice Thanksgiving holiday with the family.
Here’s a shot taken Monday through a train window- #43 The Pennsylvanian – as we crossed over both the river and the Schuylkill Expressway.
My parents lived in Philadelphia 12 years but I lived there for only one of those years. A flood of nostalgia as the train rolled into Philly.
There are interesting place names (how about Wissahickon?) you don’t find anywhere else in the country. The river and expressway name always was hard for me to spell correctly. It’s that extra “L” in there. Turns out it’s a Dutch word meaning “hidden or skulking creek”
Saturday afternoon. Taken from another Staten Island Ferry.
Grateful for all we have
Wishing you a happy birthday and remembering the day you were born.
My son-in-law James saw a story about a yarn store on wheels. Here’s the clip on Columbus television. YARNBYRDS,LLC THE YARN TRUCK
James knows I like to knit and enjoy good yarn so this morning he sent me a link from the local paper aticle about Yarnbyrds Columbus Dispatch.
A converted RV is a yarn store? I’m in!
Food Truck craze has inspired a gourmet Yarn Truck. What a wonderful idea.
Found the phone number and called Robin and this evening I was able to go and visit “Birdie” ( the mobile yarn store’s nickname) and make some wonderful gourmet yarn purchases, too.
Here’s Yarnbirds website for details on the delicious yarn and a calendar of where Birdie will be parked, so you can check it out, too! A terrific selection to choose from- I know I’ll be back.
What a cool idea. Here is the owner/ proprietor Robin Richey.
Exterior of Birdie
Robin’s husband Tom did all the LED lighting in the truck and so all the yarn shows in true color which is really important in a yarn store! He’s an electrical engineer.
Robin creates the project bags. There’s jewelry and Drunk Yarn kits for dying.
Happy thirteenth birthday dear granddaughter Anna Catherine.Here is your birthday blogpost.
