Well, Dulcie, our wagon train was hijacked on the road...that's how we ended up in Mass. You'll have to ask this guy, why.
But, I figured as long as we were in Mass., we could ask him if it would be possible to explore our surroundings. He said yes. It's Autumn, and I remember the colors as being vibrant here. I'm glad you found something to explore in this neighborhood, Dulcie...so much fun....and there is more...

I remember my mother telling me, when she was a kid she'd go up to Po Hill to pick blueberries.
It's not really the season right now, but I found as many as i could to fix a blueberry pie for dessert tonight, and some breakfast muffins for tomorrow.
I love blueberries! And for Ryan, and everyone, I brewed some blueberry tea to go with that morning muffin!
