In October I snapped a photo of my husband and his 8 siblings surrounding their mother's coffin. As I did so I wondered when we would see them all together again.... maybe a wedding of a nephew???? Sadly, they will never stand as nine again. The youngest, Doug, passed away very unexpectedly yesterday. We will miss him.

Not bad for a camera phone!!!

Do you see the RI Red in this puzzle??

Taken with my New Phone

All photos taken with my new phone. Finally I can download from the phone. The phone also allows me to use special effects on the photos, thus three different ways to view the trees at Mary's house.

There is always a puzzle being put together in the common area. Ilene, the puzzle queen, is in charge, but we all help. This was a 1,000 piece puzzle with all the state flags and capitals. Notice little RI in the first row???


This photo is around the corner from us. Residents of Middleton are fined if their sidewalks are not cleared within 24 hours of snow. View from second story stairwell

view from front door

See the High School???

This is the view out our bedroom window. Unfortunatly a screen distorts the image, but you can see the second story of the high school between the black pipe on the roof of the house and the pine tree. You may have to enlarge it to see it, but it is really there. Ted passes 6 houses to get to work.

Common Area Apt. Living

Our landlord was a local builder in Middleton. Before our building sat on its' lot, there was a movie theater here. He was the owner of the theater. That explains why a very old movie projector sits in the foyer of our apartment building.
