See that big round thing behind the water tower?
Its another water tower!
One that is architecturally 'true' to the building it sets upon

miscellaneous monday

Last weekend I was off to Massachusetts to spend the weekend with friends.  After a long delay at the airport here in NYC and a short flight to Boston the weekend got underway ... Saturday we drove into Boston and hopped the high speed ferry to Provincetown, a 90 minute trip.  Midway through the trip I succumbed (along with many others) to a bad bout of sea sickness.  I recovered. I will spare you the gory details as well as some of the nicer ones and say a nap can cure a lot of things.  I also regained my land legs and my appetite.  Did some retail therapy and then we drove back to Boston (a wonderful woman drove 2.5 hrs to come get us and take us back... I love you Joanne) after dinner at the Lobster Pot.

Before you can have lobsta, you gotta have some traps and they need to be marked with buoys like these

and 
hope those lobstas 
get made into 
this

wanna see it 
close up?

it was delicious

good vibes needed



Many of you likely know Bobbie
she posts wonderful helpful posts on her blog here 


Today I went by to see what's up 
and 
discovered she's in hospital, her daughter, Kitty, posted to let her friends know
its serious stuff. 

While Bobbie is young at heart,
her heart is not so young and not doing so well 
please 
keep her in your thoughts 
and 
prayers 
(if you are inclined that way)

My friend Deb Kitts
who you may 'recognize' from this/her email/comment icon
 doesnt have a blog of her own 
sent me this photo 
of
Frank and Dora
(not the doxies, the camels)
it was taken at the little league ball field in 
Ceredo WV. 
Frank had a bath the day before, 
his owner pressure washed him 
and 
used a leaf blower to dry him! 
He still had the camel smell 
tho. 
This area is not known for its camels 
even if it does get hotter 
than hell here in a few weeks.

Yes,
another water tower
they are
everywhere,
all you need do is
look
up

Last water tower post someone asked in the comments section 'weren't the city names painted on the towers' (answer: this is New York City and there are a bazillion water towers, none so far that I have seen have NYC on them) and another wondered if the tower in question 'supplied water to the little rooftop chalet or the whole city' (answer: that water tower supplied water not just to that little chalet but to the entire building the chalet is perched atop, every building has its own water tower, amazing but true).

I would have loved to reply to those questions right then but the comments were made by two 'no-comment' commenters.

I cant reply to your comment unless you have linked your email to your comment.
