Singer named Jimmy Jones in 1960

Jimmy Jones - Handy Man 1960 - For some reason YouTube suggested this one to me.
I have to admit, I got a big kick out of it. Enjoy!

Notes on Christmas

See what you did? You should be careful next time. Oh well, there's always next year.

Man Reading a Newspaper (Continued)

The statue of a newspaper reader that was located at Niagara and Ferry has been mentioned in the News again.

I originally thought it would be replaced by Sept. 1 but now the word is that it probably would not be located on the corner but should be displayed again after Jan 1. Another location on the Rich campus will be located in plain view of the street.

This is right in the middle of my walking area in the summer. That statue has been a fixture for very long time.

I Don't Have to Mow the Front Lawn

My lawn mower would just get stuck in the snow - don't you agree?

Actually, this is the first snow that has lasted. They did close schools Friday but all-in-all the plows have it under control. Except, of course, on side streets in the city.
Just in time for Christmas!

Sad Sight

This is a really sad sight for many people. It is located on Niagara near Forest. It is located right by an expressway entrance and exit.

Especially the clam stand, in the rear, was a popular destination for many people.

We can only hope a buyer will be found pretty soon.

Purely guessing, it may have been age or illness. In recent years the menu has been getting smaller and the prices going up.

I used to stop there occasionally after work and have a spaghetti dinner or whatever was on special. More recently they just had a very limited menu.

Pedometer News

Only 2838 steps today! That calculates out to be 1.34 miles, based on a 30 inch step.

This is not good. I think it is going to be a long winter - exercise wise.

Any suggestions on how to get a person moving in the real world in that it is cold and - as of tonight - snowy?

Actually, I really do like the cold. The problem is the initial entry into it.
