Just A Sunday Stroll Through The Neighborhood

It’s a beautiful Sunday here in Maine, Modern Philosophers, so I thought I’d take a little stroll through the neighborhood.  Would you guys like to join me?

porch viewI often blog about writing on the front porch of The House on the Hill.  Well, this is the view I have when I’m out there in my writing toga.  Very peaceful.

home officeI found this set up on the corner just down the block.  Apparently, I’m not the only one on my street who likes to work outside.  I imagine an office setting like this really cuts down on the overhead, but it must be a pain to heat…

TrafficThis is what passes as traffic in my neighborhood.  Look at all those cars lined up at the light.  It’s like I never left Los Angeles and the freeway traffic…

PumpkinsApparently, no one has told these folks that Halloween is over.  Perhaps they haven’t seen all the annoying Christmas commercials on TV, which surely would have tipped them off…

Eastern AveI know I haven’t shared a running post in a long time, Modern Philosophers.  That’s because I have been lazy and haven’t gone on a run in ages.  Hey, at least I went out for a walk today, so give me some credit.

This is Eastern Ave, the setting for most of my running posts.  Don’t worry.  I’ll put on my Running Toga and hit Eastern Ave again very soon!

sealWhen I went out for my walk, I had no idea I’d come across a seal…

football fieldThis is the football field where the Witches of Brewer High School play their home games.  It’s not far from The House on the Hill, but I’ve only attended one game.

The bleachers are uncomfortable and the team isn’t very good.  If I want to watch bad football, all I have to do is turn on the Jets game.

Thanks for joining me on a quick walk around my neighborhood.  Feels good to get a little fresh air, doesn’t it?  Happy Sunday!

    Wouldn’t you know, we raked our leaves this afternoon and you took the picture this morning! The house does look so bare once the garden is cut back!

    What? No snow? I just assumed there would be zombie footprints in the snow. Hmmm. I guess I need to keep reading to find out what Maine is really like.
