As I was going to St Ives........

Susan had to work on Tuesday so we drove to St Ives to take her to lunch

Popster & I lived here for a few months when we first got married
So did Oliver Cromwell!

We set out in search for our little flat
It has totally changed but I think this is the street.........
Image result for english phone booth......this could be the house.  We lived on the second floor & a "creepy old man" lived downstairs.  I locked myself out one night when Popster was working the night shift on the base.  I had to go up the phone booth in the square to call him to rescue me.  I remember hiding out in the phone booth until his friend showed up with keys!

Look at this cars allowed anymore

The alleyways are so neat

This is where Susan works.  We picked her up & went for fish & chips....yummo!

Does Popster blend in with the locals......hahahaha!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives? 
What is the answer to the riddle?



  1. you know I loved that post. Tell Popster that that is Lily and Rosies absolute FAVOURITE Poundland.

    I had no idea you and Oliver lived there, I must say you look years younger,

    1. I just showed Rosie the photos and asked her where it was. She said Onley at first but as soon as she saw the bridge she guessed. It's uncle Colin's. Lol.

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!
