One of the Facebook pages that I like to check every day is about the town where I grew up. There are a couple hundred people who are members of that group and are very active posting photos from back in the day and reminiscing about the good old days.
One of the photos was of a bowling alley that was within walking distance of my house. My parents never seemed to mind that I spent time at the bowling alley. I would walk down there at least once a week and spend time until I knew I had to be home for dinner. It was perfectly safe to walk alone that far in my old neighborhood.
Someone posted that photo but also mentioned that the bowling alley is gone now. They tore it down and built a high-rise on that little piece of land. How sad that the kids who live there now do not get to go to the bowling alley and hang out like we used to do.
With this cold weather and all this rain, I have a craving for comfort food. I think I will stop at the grocery on the way home and pick up what I need for a nice pasta dinner.
I especially want to get a loaf of fresh baked Italian bread. My favorite grocery bakes the bread right there at the store and it often goes on sale for 99 cents a loaf. I like to cut thick slices of the Italian bread and spread a garlic butter on it, then pop it under the broiler for about a minute to heat the bread and toast the edges. Sometimes I even toss some grated cheese on top of the bread before broiling it.
That garlic bread plus the pasta and a small green salad make a nice dinner.
This is our song. It is almost exactly what I said to him all those years ago. I was amazed when I heard this the first time. I couldn’t believe that someone had written a song so close to what happened with us. It’s heartening to know that I am not the only one with this scenario.

Jewelry is always an incredible gift. It helps show your loved one that you care enough to spend a significant amount of money to help them look their best. However, a lot of jewelry can end up looking the same. One of the best ways to ensure that you provide a unique piece of jewelry is to purchase handcrafted items.

While at work today I saw the very first sign for the many pumpkin farms in this area, and I can not wait to take David to let him pick out his pumpkin for our porch jack-o-lantern. It has become a family trip and party to pick the correct pumpkin and to get it carved and set up on the porch, just right.
I like to pick one smaller pumpkin to make us some pies and we will get this done on this trip too. I love this time of year, the weather has cooled off and we have so much to do this time of year.
