Market Fresh!

On a recent trip to Boston we stumbled upon the farmer's market 
@ Copley Square...I must say, our market's pale in comparison.
Enjoy the view!

Check out what Kerry has to say about her market!

Just Got My Spur's A Janglin'

Yesterday my lovey and I enjoyed a gorgeous evening here with a game of twilight golf at a nearby club...little did we know that there was a theme, "Cowboy"
We missed the memo!  Damn, and I have some really great cowboy golfwear, like my Stetson, visor, Lucchese golf shoes, and club holster...NOT!  
Golf was fine, I managed to remember to keep my head down after 4 holes...
geeeeeeze all these things to remember 
just to hit a stupid ball across a lawn!!
Dinner was another story...we had a choice of 2 entree's, lovey got the salmon...very fishy...I got the pulled pork...OMG, I had to send it back...(If you are faint of heart..MPM, stop reading and put on TVLand)...It looked like someone placed the hairball my 17 year old retriever coughed up this morning on a plate along with some 
black bean/corn salsa and collard greens...
yuck, yuck, yuck! 
The best part of the evening was when one of the elders of the club got a hold of the microphone and sang "Home on the Range"....
I'm just sayin',  just shoot me!!  
Atleast they could have piped in this version:)

A Vermont weekend

Recently, my lovey and I spent the weekend in the very quaint town of Woodstock, Vermont. Complete with a general store called, Gillingham's that provides one stop shopping for anything from a fine Bordeaux, to window treatments, to VT maple syrup, or even fishing hip waiters.   

We had a lovely weekend with our pals Mike and Mary. They have a beautiful home walking distance to town so we were able to walk to a fabulous dinner then stumble home...

Of course, prior to that, we had to visit the lovely Woodstock Inn 
and pinch a few cookies during high tea!

While the weather was hotter than necessary we did manage to enjoy an afternoon of golf in the Greenfield Mts near Killington, VT.

And, discover a few covered bridges located throughout Vermont.

Mike and Mary were very gracious hosts...our stay was most appreciated!  If you have a chance to visit Vermont, please do...
there is something to do for everyone...
until then we will keep the home fires burning.

PS.  Mary and I hiked this MT...can I just say...I either need to stop this 
kind of activity or get in much better shape:(
