"It's a small world after all"

I mentioned before how I am totally hooked on watching Breaking Bad  which actually is  a whole other story.  Anyhow I was watching it Tues afternoon & during a dialog between two of the characters one of them said "Actually I was stationed in Upwood"

I was like you're kidding & hit rewind to make sure I heard it right!  For anyone who doesn't know....which include 99.9 percent of the population......Upwood is a ittle-bitty village in England that if you blink while driving thru it you would miss it.   However it is where I grew up.  RAF Upwood is just outside the village which is where they were referring to! 

Small world!

That evening while I was watching Downton Abbey Edith, while making her excuse for being late for dinner, said  "The train was held up in Peterborough " 

Peterborough is where my mother was born & grew up.  Also where I was born & where our grandfather livedso we spent a lot of time there.

Small world.



  1. its time for a visit...did you used to go to the Peterborough show? We did.
    I've never heard of Upwood, or Downwood but my cousin Stephen loves minutes from where they are filming Downtown Abbey. Highclere Castle.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
