The tree all dressed-up in the knitted attire does make me smile. The nicely dressed tree may be found at the Winchester Exchange at 15 East Main Street in historic downtown Westminster. I take my hat off for the folks who dressed the tree. Each of us needs to do whatever we can to promote the community we love. The best progress comes from a positive approach.

Caroline, Grammy Evelyn, and I enjoyed dinner with our friend Joyce Hashert and her dad, Mr. Hashert
Lonely is the runner who comes upon a truck on the Wakefield Valley Trail that obviously took a wrong turn off the Baltimore Beltway. Just saying. Thurs. Sept. 21, 2017
Mr. Truck looks like it is emerging from a brief visit to the woods and returning to the trail.
Over the years, I have seen many things on the Wakefield Valley Trail. Large bunnies, and spacecrafts, and attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate… Oh, sorry. That's another story for another time…
I really did see the truck. Really I did.

Pam and Charlie at Buttersburg Inn on Sat..Sept. 9, 2017. The past several weeks have way too busy and I cannot recall if I posted this picture of my sister Pam - and Charlie, over at the Buttersburg Inn, or not. I really like this picture...
Caroline, Grammy and I went to dinner at the Buttersburg Inn, in New Windsor. It was really good to see Jim and Frank, Pam Zappardino and Charlie Collyer there. The place was full. Our dinner was great. Friday, Sept. 8, 2017
Coca Cola Syrup distributed by Rasinsky's Pharmacy, 30 West Main Street, Westminster, Md Tilden 8-7100.
I found this in an upper cupboard in the family kitchen. I was fascinated that the ingredients listed on the label read, "Prepared with sugar and water; phosphoric acid, caffeine, extractives from coca leaves (cocaine removed) and cola nuts, and other flavoring materials, colored with caramel."
Sadly there is no date on the bottle anywhere.

Best bumper sticker of the year - so far. “I brake for squirrels. (Then yell at them like a concerned parent.)”

We interviewed the prairie dogs at the Big Dry Creek Exploration Trail at Butterfly Park in Westminster Colorado.
Caroline and I are visiting Bart Walters' "Wapiti Circle," in Westminster, Colorado. Thurs. August 24, 2017. It appears that municipalities in Colorado have a vibrant public art public policy. Westminster Colorado is huge, both in size and population. There are approximately 100,000 folks living here, just north of Denver, in what appears, at first impression, to be in reclaimed desert, within sight of the Rocky Mountains.
Of course, Mr. Walters is a local Westminster, Md. artist. Caroline and I visited the elks featured in this sculpture display at Reed St. and Walnut Creek, when they were being created in Westminster Md.
The sculptures are magnificent.

"Attempting tinsmithing, rising fourth-grader Colby Petry said in the middle of his camp last week that he signed up because he is 'really into history.'"
"Living History campers experience 1800s life" by Michel Elben
"Twenty-four fourth-grade campers, some dressed in period garb, tried their hands at sewing, cooking, painting, tinsmithing, weaving, ropemaking, cane-fishing and candy-making last week during the Carroll County Farm Museum's annual Living History Camp. This week, fifth-graders are getting their turn…"
