First of all NOTICE that it is January 10, 2020, in New Hampshire
and that she is in a T-shirt and 5:30pm!

Yes, it was 60F!

A lighted wand was one of the Christmas presents she requested along with 3 other hula hoops.

I researched and found the ‘poi balls‘. That was a surprise. She likes them, as I knew she would. I got two sets — one for the family (i.e., I) as well, but she has appropriated that set too. That is OK. SMILE. I know where they are and she lets me play with her toys. She knows which way her bread is buttered.



Keeps her happy.

This was the first time she was able to go outside and do it.

Hula Hoop collection and my custom holder for them.

Yes, I understand that this is in the

BUT I am still chuffed.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.

Another ‘603’ (As In ‘N.H.’) Estate Sale — This In Manchester.

by Anura Guruge

These ‘603 Estate Sales‘ are addictive. Lot of fun. Very nice folks that run it and you can always get a deal. We go for what I call ‘the sport’. Nothing we want. Nothing we need. Nothing that we are getting to resell for a profit. Mainly to see if there is anything — somewhat unique — that catches our eye and we can get at a deal. They, after the first few hours, will majorly discount prices and entertain offers.

We did NOT get any of the items pictured above. We got a few items and I have NOT taken any pictures of them as yet. We spent $40. I think we spent $60 at the last onein Derry.

We have been to about five or six of these — once every few months. Miss some due to other conflicts.

This one, in Manchester, was a lot of fun. Least crowded we have been to, which was good as it was also the smallest of the houses we have been. Not as frantic as other sales. That was good. Lot of good deals. But, we really didn’t want any.

The ‘cricket’ poster for $40 cracked me up. I have seen it and I am sure I have a smaller version of it, in printed form, somewhere in my extensive cricket collection. Wonder if it sold.

Can This Serve As The Definition For ‘Cute & Cuddly’?

In the window of a tattoo shop in Manchester, NH. They also had the mother. Here is a picture of her. She reminded I of I! Smile.

This tattoo shop, on a side street, called ‘Bulletproof Tiger’ was next door to a shuttered (but open) adult store. Didn’t realize that Manchester was so cosmopolitan.

This picture didn’t make the ‘Pictures of the Day‘ cut. But, it was too precious not to share. Enjoy.

I Had No Idea That I Traveled This Much In 2019 Until ‘Google Maps’, Unsolicited, Sent Me This Timeline.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

As somebody who lives, openly, on the Web it really doesn’t bother me that much that Google is now keeping track of my travels.

Most of where I go, of import & interest, gets reported on this blog anyway. So, I kind of don’t care.

This, I know, will bother some — quite rightly. Scary what the police could do with it. Good job I have no secret travels and very few secrets, if any.

In a way I regret that ‘Google Maps‘ has not been around all my long (and semi-illustrious) life. Would be nice to have a log of all the places I have visited given that I used to travel EXTENSIVELY. The other day I TRIED to count the countries I have visited. I got to around 39. I might have been to a few more.

Oh, there are quite a few mistakes in the Timeline.

‘Google Maps’ lists Rockland, Maine, as a NEW place I visited. Oh, dear! First time I have been to Rockland with ‘Google Maps’. That is the problem with this stuff.

Anywho …
