NH fever


Spring fever, the desire to be outside, to be part of the awakening vegetation.  I could almost see the grass turning a deeper shade of green right before my eyes,


I probably passed this drain many many times, last year, but this year, Wow, it popped up, and mesmerized me with its geometric design.


Of course I’ve seen the brilliant yellow early flower of the forsythia bush, but in NH it was even brighter and more beautiful against the green of its companion Juniper or was it a Yew.  Who cares, it was a delight.


AND really have you ever seen a better piece of art.  Made in the good ole USA. =^_^=

Art is everywhere.                Discovering in NH (New Hampshire )!!   what a great way to spend leisure time.

memory lane

p1000518The pumps are gone, the mechanics retired, but the building remains… this little lot is perched on the corner where two secondary roads intersect.  (see below)  I liked its character. =^_^=

p1000516What were the  cars it serviced in its “hay” day. The following cars were in a collection that I found in New Hampshire, this was one of the nicest and well maintained displays I’ve seen in many a day.




p1000477check out the bee on the bonnet.  What a restoration!    You will find these “ladies” at

Kancamagus Collectables   on the Kancamagus Hwy, Rte 112  between Rte 3 and 1 -93, North Woodstock, NH. USA  (  603-745-0915 )  for those of you who saw the phone booth, it was in this location.  Admission is free.

The vintage service center is in Madrid, New York, USA

Life is full of wonders.  We need only look around us for the remnants of a time gone by.  The world is a wonderful place, and we have had such a colourful and creative past.  Today we live every day, starting each morning with a brand new canvas.

Chop suey Tuesday- impressions


First Impressions – we all have them, when we see something, we take it in and in seconds, we have an impression


No matter the impression, I find myself looking at the details, and the story the building tells me.


Sometimes, the impression is one that is a statement, and I “know” it is not a place that I want to visit or know too much about it.  It  has a facade that clearly says…”I’m here, don’t mess with me”

p1000353This oldie sat off the road, I had to get out and take a closer look, this is the back of the house.  We tried to find out more about the house, it was for sale, we took the details, unfortunately, the seller, didn’t have a web site, and we were out of State by the time we were where we could look further into it.  I’ve not forgotten, and given the time hope that we will discover more about the house, and the selling price.

p1000346What is the fascination, don’t really know… we are on the look out for a property in the States that we can easily get to, and tour from there.  Maybe it is just a dream, its nice to be able to travel into the possibilities.  Life is busy, it is nice to have a place to drift too

p1000333my travels take me to a lot of places, I thrill on them all.  Each tells a story, each one is unique.  I feel like that about people too.  It is not what someone else tells me, it is what I “see” for myself.

The past may play a part in what a person, or place is “today”… however, we live in the now, and it is what you see and feel NOW that counts.

PL Principle #2   I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

PL Principle #6  I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

PL Precept # 6 Efface your self conceptions.

What impression will you make on the world today?

amon-wed-23rd_edited-1a smile works every time.

Have a good day everyone…


sometimes in dreams


To achieve a quiet heart, so that we can live in greater harmony with the world around us, takes an effort.  In life, when we are balanced, grounded, we are capable of better decisions, and more effective results to our actions.

If we are active, when we should be at rest, then when it is time to act, we are often ill prepared.  We can miss opportunities that had we been rested and ready, would have been easy to deal with.

For the last many days I have been living with a sinus infection.  Ok it is not the end of the world, however, when the symptoms gang up on me, I really do find myself leaning towards,a complaining mind. (that is not the right way/direction to go)

Like a hamster in a cage, running, running on my wheel, running and getting nowhere.  After chasing around looking for a clinic that was open today, I finally gave up and came home.  I will take the time to reflect on just why this physical annoyance is giving me grief.

It is said, that the “superior” person, first achieves quiet heart, and then acts.   Hmmmmp I have some serious winding down to do, 1st step, when my body says rest, I need to listen.

PL Precept #17  Grasp what is most essential

Thursday Doors 9.29








smell the sea

follow the crowd

to the

fresh catch

 there is no match

indulging  in the day’s catch

I totally enjoyed

the succulent lobster

stuffed into my roll

a treat, indeed.

PL Precept # 7  Everything exists in relativity


for all that happened and went into

my being able to enjoy

such a delight.

yes it is still Wednesday -but a Thursday door is in this post!


We can only wonder at the creative mind that pulled this all together.  what a hoot it must have been to drive up and meet the people here, possibly someone somewhere will know more about this location, and contact me.  Meanwhile…. I enjoy the little surprises as i revisit the pictures.


Both my husband and our friend Syb, were reminded of Stephen King’s writing when they saw the pictures. I personally have not read a lot of Stephen King, what do you think?


I know Norm, I know, tomorrow is Thursday, but as you can see, this door from the building is very standard issue. the one that was super cool was the one at the front, where they drove cars in and out from.


Dorinda, Elusive, does this place inspire a storyline?  Anyone from Maine that knows anything about this place.. I’d love to hear from you.

Always be open to new discoveries, and when you find a piece of history that speaks to you…. enjoy it!
