Sweet Memories

I've told my office-mates this story many times: in my childhood my mother got pieces of sugar cane from the grocery store, so my brother and I could suck on them the way the kids in the C&H commercial did.  You could actually get pieces of sugar cane in New Mexico.  Certainly the C&H people knew that children everywhere would demand it.

Finally it occurs to me to look for it on Youtube.

South End Historical Society House Tour

Rosemary and I went on the South End H.S. House tour.  We saw six row houses all built in the 19th century.  One was completely modern inside; the others were less renovated.  These houses are tall and thin; from 3 to 5 stories.  You get developed calf muscles living in one of these.

Since Photographing the insides of the house was not allowed, I only took a few outside shots of the beautiful South End.

 Poor Steve!  He fell.

"On the parlor level stairs, notice only one cast-iron Rinceau handrail.  The second was sold to neighbors at 146 West Newton Street many decades ago."

 We thought the black screen made this look like the Chrysler Building--sort of.

I like this bike!

The Children's Art Center was a bathroom stop for house tourists.
