A Day with Nature

The Arboretum is The Roomie’s favorite place.  It’s peaceful and still fun.

Elliot, always the jokester, couldn’t stop touching this cherub’s butt.

He said Jonathan started it by taking pictures of the cherub.  After that Elliott said it was all downhill, lol.

The Roomie just shook her head.  Funkos will be Funkos.

Autumn Is Close At Hand

Hey Brody…pull my finger…HA HA HA!

Don’t you just feel bad for me right now?

The trees are starting to turn.  We are all excited that Fall begins on Friday!!!  We love October…you know because we are all Halloweenish.  It’s going to be so much fun.  The Roomie said we can start Halloween decorating in October!

We can’t wait!  Especially Melvin!

September at the Arboretum

It’s almost Autumn.  We usually don’t start the festivities until October 1st but when you are a Scarecrow, Frankenstein and a ghost all year is Halloweentown time.

This place is like church for the Roomie.  The leaves are starting to change color, which of course we love!

Alice is always one who jump in a photo.  She’s just glad that she comes out in pictures.  Being invisible sometimes has its draw backs, lol.

Elliott and Brody are pleasant chaps.  We always have fun together.  They call us the Ghoul Squad.

We know so many have been dealing with Hurricanes and Tropical Storms so it forced us to get outside and appreciate our local nature.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday like ours!

The Summer of Barry – Vacation

The Roomie took us to the Beach again this year for Vacation.  Fun had by all…especially me!

I was all over the Jersey Shore.  From Wildwood Crest to Cape May to Ocean City.  I was getting it done!

I saw the Sunken Ship at Sunset Beach, Cape May.

I saw the World War II Watch Tower as well.  What a view!

I went Shopping at the Washington Street Mall.

Stopped by Winterwood for some Christmas Cheer!

Watched Totality of the Solar Eclipse on TV because Jersey didn’t experience Totality.

But what we did have was pretty spectacular any way.

I watched the Sunset at Sunset Lake in Wildwood Crest.

And I spent the day at the bay with my friends.

The Beach…oh the beach…I heart you most of all.  What a vacation it was!

An Ordinary Day with Jeff the Clone

Everyone thinks my life is wildly exciting.  Yes I’m a former Storm-trooper from the future, and yes I’m a clone with mad skills.  My life is not all glamour and parties though.  Like yesterday, yesterday I ran errands.

So my day started with a little work.  These are star charts.  TJ and Tourist Dave thought they were Jackson Pollack paintings.  Um…no.  I tried to explain Space to them but they broke out in song and dance.  I gave up.

I got in the car.  The Roomie drove and we went to Target.

I targeted in on the soda we were picking up because of the awesome price.

I pointed out that perhaps it was time to fill up on petrol.  I’m a former soldier we do what needs to get done.

Then back home and I read a book.  So ended my ordinary day….Clone Style!

Bjorn’s Flash Back

I’ve been looking at old pictures of some of my adventures.  I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

The trip to South Carolina was part of our pilgrimage to Orlando, Florida.  We stopped in every state on the way.

Savannah, Georgia was also part of that pilgrimage.   I loved this very old city.  It had southern charm and so much history.  There is a raw beauty about Savannah.  Sometimes it’s hard to describe. If you can, I recommend a visit to the port community.  It’s known for its Art School, Spanish Moss and incredible historic homes with exquisite iron work.

Baltimore, Maryland has a beautiful Inner Harbor.  So many activities to keep you busy all day.  They also have many delicious venues to get food.  The National Aquarium was a lot of fun too.  It’s on the way to Washington, D.C. so if you are going that way check it out on the way.

This picture was taken at Fort Mifflin, Philadelphia, PA.  This site was a particular favorite of The Roomie.  She loves anything 1700’s which Philadelphia has in spades.  She even loved that it rained that day.  Lack of crowds offers more adventure time and one gets to really experience the site.  I was digging the cannons…loud but very cool.

Cleveland, Ohio is the home to Rock ‘N’ Roll.  They Museum offers many things.  From Michael Jackson’s glove to Elvis’ motorcycle.  Cleveland is also known for it’s Art Museums and our favorite…The Christmas Story House.  The Roomie enjoyed Lakeside Cemetery.  She’s all about Cemeteries too.  She was digging the Cemeteries in Savannah too 😉

I’m not sure where my next adventure will be but I know it will be a good one.

Air Victory Museum

The Roomie heard about the Air Victory Museum last summer but this is the first chance we’ve had to see it.

The Summer of Barry continues with this museum.  They had a piece of the 911 site and an exhibit to the tragedy of 911.  It is a part of American History now.  It brought up sorrow but it was an important exhibit.

There were many planes.  Model Planes and some helicopters.

Buddy is a history lover from way, way back.  There were exhibits for Amelia Earhart and the Hindenberg Disaster.

Barry was thinking how cool it would be to fly one of these jets.  Fast and Furious….mach 3 style!

When we left we headed over to Mt. Holly, NJ for some lunch.  Jimmy and Eddie found the food amazing and the beer even more amazing, lol!

Stella….

A Nor’Easter came to Our Town yesterday.  Her name was Stella and she was messy and heavy.  She made snow not fun 😦

Buddy and the Roomie were ecstatic that our new Neighbor snow blew our front walkway.  Thumbs up from the big guy!

Shelly and Lenny  were a little bummed that the snow was so wet and heavy that sledding was a bummer.  They tried to build a snowman but it was like rolling the snow through quick-drying cement :(**

Stella could have been worse.  We ended up with about 4″ with drifted snow which turned to ice when as the day got colder.  This morning we woke up to 19 degrees with real-feel temps of 9 degrees.  This with Spring just days away.  Weird, right?

Christmas Fun – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

We went with the Roomie to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the historic Walnut Street Theater.

Mr. Nigel Murray loves the theater.  He said it reminded him of his days in London.

We all wondered if he wore clothing in London?  It’s not a question one just blurts out and he wasn’t being forth coming.

Pablo gave the show 12 nubs up!  He was loving the songs and chuckling along like the rest of us.  It was a wonderful day In Town.  We are all starting to feel the Christmas spirit!  God Bless us Everyone!
