I like the sign and the whole area seems to have a nice old-fashioned look to it!
Some of us never get tired of toys!
I agree---we like our toys too. MB

It's a child's dream come true.
Tanya Breese said…
yup, i still like toy stores :)
Yes, I wish I still had some of my childhood toys. My experience is that they are not for ever.

I wish I had saved my children's Tonka trucks and Fisher Price toys instead of giving them to my school's kindergarten. No toys today are as sturdy as those toys were.

I like the name of this Toy store.
I love the way the shot is nearly all B & w and the reflection is in colour.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
