found this stanley classic thermos at st. vinneys.

brand new, never used

just my price at 1.70

the thermos costs less than the bag of marshmallows, which are ready for the inaugural thermos of hot cocoa.

be cool, it's back to school

this poster makes me think of back to school for some reason. i think they must be partying after the big game. i picked it up at the elkhorn flea market years ago. the edges aren't in the best shape, but i love the colors.  

aren't they a happy bunch.

               the photos are from St. Paul's Chapel in New York. i took them on our trip to New York this summer with sue and marissa. St. Pauls is located directly in front of the World Trade Center site and it served as a place of rest and refuge for recovery workers at the WTC site.

a very moving place.

door county - end of tour

            well, better end this long tour, otherwise it will be fall in door county.  door county is great to visit in the fall, they have a big pumpkin festival in october. 

the following are a few random photos.

love this motel sign. 

local grocery store.

nice color scheme inside grocery store

the door county drive-in still going strong.   I love drive-in movies.  we went to many movies at the drive-in growing up in california. this would happen quite often when the tv broke. 
dad would pop a big batch of popcorn, then we'd head to the local hamburger joint or mexican place for taquitos for take out to eat before the 1st movie. my parents always picked up a six pack of bottled coke but they always swapped out one bottle of coke for an orange crush form me. didn't like coke back then, love diet coke now.  my sister and i brought pjs to change into after playing on the swings between movies. we saw some great movies back then.  

the ferry to washington island.

thanks for coming along to door county.
