Glastonbury: Blackledge Falls

While visiting friends in Glastonbury, Ct., we decided to take a walk around Blackledge Falls.

We like the sound of rushing water.

We hear some pheasants in the distance.

Small streams. We think the water levels should be higher given all the rain. Where are the fish?

Foot bridges make it easy to get across.

Where is the falls? Maybe we should go this way? Who has the map?

We follow the water up the hill.

We never did find the falls. Maybe next time!

Urban Walkabout: Florence

Constructed by the Worcester Lunch Car Company in 1941

Reviewing Cafe Evolution on, jennicide writes: i love evolution cafe so much i feel sad when i am not there.

A cute house only visible in winter, we suspect. An armed and dangerous purple bag patrol officer from Northampton Media, lower right.

Artifacts 20th Century has an Eames lounger by Herman Miller. We've always liked the style. But the price was way beyond our budget.

We've brought chairs like this to the dump in years past. What were we thinking?

Sleds, shovels, salt and sand are displayed on the porch of the hardware store. We think they can put this stuff away.

We've recently purchased a high efficiency washer & dryer. We really like having them. Although pulling a load of towels through town looks like fun.

Recent Acquisitions to the PCJ Library

From artist C. Bator of Chicopee, this profile of Vincent (1977) captures the restauranteur as she saw him. Confident. Successful.

A PCJ staffer worked at Vincent's Steakhouse, West Springfield, as a bus boy in 1984. He never saw a ghost.

A sunflower with wooden bird by D.J. Lang (2005?) of Chicopee. We like how the sunflowers are shivering. And not cause it's cold.
