I walked in fog this morning, but the sun eventually broke through the clouds and chased the fog away. I saw lots deer, the usual noisy geese all waking up, a couple of rabbits, a woodpecker and lots of cardinals and robins as I walked around the lake.
I paid a visit to Vee's blog as I do every morning and she had a link there for Penny Postcards. I went to check it out and looked up Waldwick, NJ, which is where I grew up. There was one post card there of the Waldwick train station. I spent a lot of time sitting in that train station. All through high school my friend Bernice and I would be there on a lot of Saturdays waiting for the train which would take us to Ridgewood. We would walk around town, mostly window shopping and looking at the boys, have lunch while we were there and then walk back home to Waldwick. The price of the train ticket? - only 25 cents!!
Here is the picture. This picture looks very old. I wonder what year it is? We used to ride the train in the late 60's.
I finally wore out a pair my favorite shoes (not walking shoes) and had to throw them away. Today I went to DSW to replace them with some new shoes. I didn't want any type of sneakers, but just a nice comfortable shoe to wear with jeans. This store is a huge with aisles and aisles of shoes all sitting out. I went up and down all the aisles and I can't believe that I couldn't find one pair of shoes that I liked. I used to love that store and never had any trouble finding shoes. While there I did run into a friend Carol, from Meals on Wheels - she drives on Wednesdays. We talked quite a while amongst all the shoes. BTW - she couldn't find any shoes she liked either!!
I finished reading Angels All Over Town by Luanne Rice.This is the first book I've read by this author and I will probably be reading more of them. The book is about Una (a soap star) and her three sisters. I enjoyed reading the book.
Here is a quote from the book that me laugh. :-)
"This is monkey piss. You should drink Guinness," Joe advised.
I've started another book which is due at the library next Saturday. Once I finish this one I can get back to the twilight series.
Congratulations to Ken on a job well done. He got an nice little bonus from work! :-)
We had supper at Five Guys, stopped by the old house to pick up the mail and then came home.
No Netflix tonight - we are going to watch a couple episodes of Seinfeld, I'll have some cookies and knit.
It's Friday so I'm sure you all had a fine day.
