I think this might be a hippotamus, who knows

I encountered Sherlock Holmes

This has been here for a while, anyone need a wheelchair?

More than enough Christmas stockings

Everybody needs a Christmas sweater

Plenty of snowmen. This one can be hung on the wall

Festive vase

Animated dogs, what fun

Twins

This is a question I still ask myself

How about this for New Year's Eve?

Or maybe a gold jacket

Lunch at Frazer's Place

I had an appointment for a hearing test at the VA Hospital in White River Junction in Vermont which turned into quite a pleasant drive through the hills of Vermont. There were snow showers in the hills and mountains and the sky was filled with interesting clouds and light. This could have been a photographic adventure if not for a tight schedule.

This blog was created to feature "Things I Have Seen" and I'll admit that I've seen many burgers and fries. What I haven't seen is dollar bills made into shirts.

They had Christmas trees for sale too. It was one stop shopping.


This is not the best food photo, I forgot to disable the light on the phone. I couldn't wait for the photo, so I took a bite. Good burger with bacon, sliced onion. tomato and cheddar (not american) cheese. After all I was in Vermont.
A guy at the counter was folding bills into shirts. I have never seen this before and I've seen a lot of stuff. Nice idea for Christmas stocking stuffers


Clever isn't it?

Afternoon Walk

I was one of the people who could not understand why cameras were added to cell phones. I thought it was silly that anyone would use a low resolution camera when so many affordable point-and-shoot were available.  I was of the belief that a phone had a single purpose, to make and receive calls.

That all changed with the smart phones, the camera quality is better than my earliest DSLR without the weight and price tag. The greatest advantage is that the phone is almost always available. If you take photos, it is important that you always have a camera. One morning while walking  I spotted a moose standing in the middle of the road knowing full well that my nice camera was sitting at home on a shelf, what a ridiculous place for it to be.

Theere is nothing profound about this blog, my plans for it are a way to share snapshots of life. Most (but not all) of the photos will be taken with my smart phone. Happy clicking!

I agree with the premise that you should clean up after your dog, but I can imagine why your mother had done it in the past. Uusally this sign is posted in the workplace kitchen area, albeit not about dogs. Maybe that is why I have a cat.

This is a nice sign that happens to be completely inaccurate. Taylor Road is the turn to the left of Fox Farm Road. Every so often I have to help out motorists.
This is the most common roadside sight in New Ipswich. They should read the first sign in this posting about your mother not picking up after you. Lately this person has switched over to Coors Light, another tasteless beer.

This is one solution I suppose for the litter.
