My childhood hometown!

We toured Simsbury, CT a few weeks ago and I took some photos that probably won’t mean anything to anyone but me.  I have a photo of the house I grew up in from age 4-11 as well as the Nursing Home my mother used to work at, the brook I grew up exploring, the schools and church I attended, and Ray’s Barber shop, where we bought our daily supply of bubble gum!!

McLean Game Refuge

Sometimes the best finds are the ones you find by mistake!  A few weeks ago we headed to Simsbury, CT, where I spent my early years, hoping to climb Talcott Mountain.  Unfortunately, I didn’t research in advance, and found we couldn’t get anywhere near the mountain because there was a huge event, and cars were parked up and down the road!  On to Plan B.  I remembered going to McLean Game Refuge when I was in girl scouts, so we headed there.  Wow, what a gorgeous location, especially with the peak autumn colors!!  So glad for Plan B.
