A Day in Cape May

One of my friends had moved to Cape May about 2 years ago. I had not made the jpurney to visit, until last week. Had the grand tour from bay to Wildwood by auto. A wonderful crabcake dinner, walk on the bay for sunset before my trek back to Trenton.

A wonderful day was had by all!

Starbucks encounter

One of my friends met the love of his life at Starbucks...Me? well her's my starbucks story.
I was called to work in Atlantic City. Went to the Starbucks by the convention center for a pick-me up. I had my transit id on because there were many police around the station for some reason. Ahead of me in line was a boy, about 6 with his grandfather. He had a "conductor" hat on and a pocket full of seat checks. He spotted my ID and started pointing and tugging at his Grandpa's hand. He could not believe I was an engineer! I have to wonder if he will be able to grow up and still have his dream of working on the trains......

gifts from nature

Once in a while, my wax plant which I've had for many years, produces a flower. It's unfortunate that you can't smell the chocolate scent that comes with the beautiful blossoms

I have my favorite escape place. Went to dinner Sunday and found this herd right in the middle of "downtown".
