Sometimes you just have to have BALLS

One Ball is good

I think two Balls are better.

Stepping Up almost always leads to Stepping Down

Yesterday I was looking through some images specifically for STEPS to contribute to the UHH Forum Challenge of the day.  What is our fascination with steps.  Most of the ones I posted went somewhere...but some folks posted steps that went no where.
Im thinking that I like steps because they take me somewhere...but sometimes I dont like climbing them... These steps were worth climbing inside the lighthouse for the fantastic view

I did not have to work at all to go up these steps.
 They took me upstairs in B&H NYC so I could hold Olympia for the very first time.
Outside steps are really nice too...I stepped right into a forrest.
These steps make things a lot easier for me when the boat is in the water..
I guess they make things easier for hubby when the boat is NOT in the water.
And as you all know there are no steps like those that lead to home.
I have more steps, but I will be stepping out pretty soon so no more playtime.

What a difference an hour can make. 
Woke up to a fog looming over the river.  An hour later it was a hovering mist...
Then I got busy
yummy after

Delaware Chews at Tohickon Restaurant & Tavern

Took a nice ride out on Sunday while the sun was shining and pulled in to this tavern next to a long row of Harleys.  Well a bike is a bike is a bike.  Furm had the special Cheese Steak with Jack Daniels Sauce and I ordered a Pork Roll, Cheese and Onion Sandwich.  The joint was just perfect for what we wanted and the service was warm, friendly and efficient.  A nice fire was roaring in the wood stove and we couldnt be any more cozy. 16 bucks with tip...not too bad.

People Get Ready

After Sandy, it seemed like even the trees were disoriented and confused.  This Maple in the front yard was sporting its greens, reds, oranges and yellows.

The east coast got a second hit with ATHENA, right after Sandy, but this time around the guys came BEFORE the storm.  Cut down limbs anywhere near lines and even cleaned up after.  Now that is what I call PUBLIC SERVICE.

Our first snow.

There will always be light...peace to all as the season of eating, drinking, shopping and gifting begins.

It was so nice to not have to worry about the Delaware River flooding and even nicer to see the crossing bridge functioning and the little white gazebo, just freshly painted last year still on its footings.  .
The power was very selective, such that some folks never lost it and others in the next neighborhood or house did.  Power was up at Oxford Valley on Saturday and it was nice to get out with friends and see  normal.  The Mall was all decked out and ready for the holidays and shoppers were out and people looked happy and kids were having some fun.
Just as Saturday evening came I saw a big Orange Asplundh truck leave the neighborhood.  Next came Peco.  I didnt want to bug them so I shot through the gate.

Sandy Left Town and Took the Power With Her

It is good to be prepared.  Little generator to back up big one CHECK
Candles CHECK
HAM Radio Check
ok so we dont have that much food.

Long lines for food, long lines for gas...OOPSY...wont be needing gas anytime soon for this one.
Still no power here in our little Delaware River neighborhood.  We are grateful that the river behaved and did not flood.  We await the quiet when the generators can be put away for another time.
My heart breaks for those who lost so much more than power.
I look forward to seeing the Jersey Shore but wont go to gauk
and will have to wait to take a subway in Manhattan
But when I can I will go and spend what money I have freely to support businesses and people in those areas.
