Both in Merrimack, but different locations, a couple of hours apart. The top one was at the Cinemagic when we went to see ‘House with a Clock in its Wall‘. As with the Cinemagic, in Portsmouth, it has bright, airy and EMPTY men’s rooms with huge mirrors. The other two were at Applebee’s after the movie.

Went to Merrimack High School for a robotics meet. This was by the approach road.

Shame. In real bad condition. The springs on the boogie are being held up with pieces of wood. Not sure it can be restored — or whether it is worth the effort. Appears that it was used as an advertising hoarding at some point because there is a — now empty — sign at the top, which would not have been part of the original caboose.

Just wanted to share it with you.

After getting foiled at the stupid Manchester Science Museum yesterday, we were at a loose end. Deanna suggested that we go to the Huge ‘Goodwill’ store they have on Rte 3, close to Merrimack. So I cut across town and got there. Yes, we then, and Deanna will claim that it was mainly me, proceeded to spent 4 times what it would have cost at the museum. I still felt kind of guilty that the kids didn’t get to go to the museum — though they did get a (as usual) very nice lunch at the ‘Red Arrow Diner’ — and even got to sit and eat with a local, business ‘VIP’. It was a good lunch.

The kids, as ever, wanted to go to another restaurant — but, Teischan didn’t want to go to “Applebee’s” because we had just been their on Tuesday (in Tilton). So, I am driving back on Rte 28 thinking where to go. I was thinking of stopping at “Dominicks” (near Barnstead) where we had eaten a few times before. Then I sailed around the circle and was proceedings along Rte 28 when I drove past the Circle Restaurant.

We had had breakfast there before. I always thought it was only open for breakfast and lunch. But, as I was driving past I saw cars and lights. There was no traffic, so I pulled a U.

Glad we went. It was fun. It was good. It was cheap — especially the red wine at $2.75 a glass! I had two and got Deanna to drive home.

Warm place — in all aspects. Very friendly. Sense of fun.

Good, decent food. Nothing pretentious. Prices just right. Kids liked it.

Since I am off carbs, I had the meat loaf and a salad. It was good. That they don’t charge $6 to $12 for a glass of house wine definitely appealed to me. I even commended them on it. Even at that they are making a profit — since we are here talking ‘no name’ house wine, that they can buy in 5 gallon boxes for $12.99. Bravo. [By the way, I have lost 10 pounds in a month. Deanna is livid.]

They are on my list, and as such we will go back.

Google Maps 'street view'. It must have been dusk when they drove by.
