advance, retreat



For someone who doesn't like to leave home, I've been doing so a lot. Friday, I made a quick trip with a full car, to Brooklyn. The laundromat near my son's apartment is also a pinball parlor. The city is a wonderland of the unique and eclectic, and I savor it until I reach the point where I am saturated.



Then home to cats and books 
 and glorious flowers from Bow Street.

    1. It's really cool--there are about a dozen machines in pristine condition, and it's a reasonable 50 cents a game.

  4. isn't it great, tho, to have both the city and the countryside available to you? I'd love to live life like that :)

  7. and then go a little more further south..... :)

    it's the best of both worlds. I love unique and eclectic, but only if it's quiet. I don't think I would do so good in the hustle of the city.

    I love that little painting in the background... xo
