This shot was taken using the Retro Camera app on my phone. It's a bench on one of the pathways in the garden at the park that was closest to the house I grew up in.
Here are some other versions of this bench also taken with the Retro Camera app on my phone. It's my favorite camera app.
In the field that I used to play in as a child is an old cemetery. The
last time anyone was buried here was in 1969. The earliest grave is
marked about 1888.
These are graves of some of the residents from the residential home that
owns the field. I'm assuming these people did not have families to
take care of the burials. The bigger monuments, I think, are the
founding nuns of the home. It is no longer run by a church, though.
This cemetery used to have a wrought iron fence around it. I don't
think anyone took care of the small grave yard the whole time I was
growing up. So I was shocked to see it freshly mowed and the fence
We used to scare each other with stories of the people buried there when
I was growing up. We would dare each other to spend the night there.
Of course none of our parents would allow such silliness.
This week has been my spring break. I have spent a lot of time with
myself. This is something that is necessary for me and something of
which I get to do very little. So, I treated myself some. Here I am at
my favorite restaurant with outdoor seating waiting for some of my
favorite food to be served. The weather has thankfully been nice this
Here are pictures of my lunch. I had french dip (YUMMY) and those round things are called Mill Fries. Mill Fries are new potatoes that have been rolled in herbs and spices and fried. They are SO GOOD!!! They are called Mill Fries because the name of the restaurant. It's Old Mill Stream Inn. It is in a historical building right next to the building that used to be a grist mill and there is a stream next to it between Old Mill Stream Inn and the old grist mill which is a micro brewery restaurant called Trailhead.
