A friend sent this to me (because all my friends have heard about the paper mill in Mosinee) recently and made me miss the hometown. What I really wish I could find is a paper towel dispenser that just says Mosinee Paper Towels. They exist, I've seen them. Wish I had one.
We didn't really have that much of a winter this year, but I sure needed a taste of spring nonetheless and in February I went out to visit a friend in Delaware and we spent an afternoon enjoying Longwood Gardens outside of Kennett Square, PA. It was an afternoon to jump for joy over and over as no matter which way I looked, there was beauty in the world.
My friends Roger and Glen decided to get married during New York's infamous Halloween Parade - a first for the parade! Then they, along with Rev. Shawn Moniger, traveled the Parade route while Ro and I, dressed like sailors, walked beside them, stopping to make out every so often. Surprisingly no pictures showed up on line despite getting photographed dozens of times throughout the route! But whatever, it was one of the best nights of my life bar none. :)
A trip to a county fair in upstate New York September 2011 was the perfect way to end a busy summer! Demolition Derby, cotton candy, a ferris wheel and of course livestock. Reminded me a lot of the Marathon County Fair that I'd go to all the time as a kid.
