Where we stayed on our visit last weekend to Burlington VT. Pretty much intact 1881 mansion.

Took granddaughter and her husband (oy!) to see Vermont Shakespeare Festival's Taming of the Shrew, which was surprisingly fantastic.

Whole belly fried clams at Scituate Harbor. These used to be sold as a snack food from shacks located all over the South Shore of Massachusetts. Now you have to go to fancy restaurants to find them. :(

My parents used to drink this brand of beer. The original Rhode Island company that made it went out of business in the 1980s. The brand was revived a few years ago but it is not brewed in Rhode Island now.

The original company ran very funny animated commercials. These can be found on Youtube.

As predicated in the Old Age thread we are spending today taking my cousin (and her cat) to medical appointments. :)

Currently at the vet in Hanover (where my mother and stepfather are buried. Then lunch. Then on to Hingham (where my maternal grandparents and many other ancestors are buried in the Old Ship Church.) Then back to Scituate (where half the Union Cemetary and even some living people are relatives ;) ).

Everywhere I turn are memories. :)
