Across the River

 

I had the great good fortune to spend the day with a few friends up at Camp Lackawanna.  The weather, the food, the landscape, the light was great, but the company made the day.

Over the Hill

Over the Hill

I had the great good fortune to accept an invitation for a little afternoon trip to a chalet in Sullivan County on this Thanksgiving Day.  It was particularly opportune in that I had just about decided to spend the afternoon at Rickett’s Glen, with a certain “been there, done that” feeling, when the phone call came.  Along the way, I took advantage of the afternoon November light and the recent rains.

There is so much for which to be thankful on a fine day like this!

Striking 13

So Phil and I took a trip south to Hatboro, Pa, where there is a museum of memorabilia from the old Philadelphia Athletics.  Having grown up in the 50’s and in the proud possession of a Connie Mack autographed baseball, it proved interesting, but it wasn’t too photogenic.  Down the street a ways, we found a clock repair shop, and I was captivated.  The store sells an amazing variety of clocks, but to my mind, the most intriguing areas of the shop were the workbenches.  You need to understand that I have something of a workshop, and it is not unlike the cluttered benches in the clock shop.  There were three people that seemed to be involved – all, strangely enough, much younger than the popular image of the clock repair man.  No Gippettos here!  It was a little hard to determine who was in charge, so I asked, at random, one of the staff if I could take some pictures.  It was not a problem.
