Hello Clancy old friend!

Breakfast at the Oakhurst diner in Millerton. Asked for hot sauce to go with my potatoes and eggs. Took one bite and was whisked back in time to 1986, Fleetwood Diner, Ann Arbor. A look at the bottle explained it. Clancy's Fancy is my madeleine, it turns out!

Garden snake

snake tongue, originally uploaded by jahansell.

He wasn't fazed at all by my creeping closer and closer - this is the last of about 25 shots!

Open for Business!

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.
This is the first time I've tried a slideshow like this - let me know how it works out! It doesn't seem to have included my comments about each photo, or title - too bad. 

But the short version is - Sharon Farm Market is here - hooray!  I wandered its bright and colorful aisles, chatted with proprietor Joe Choi, who was very happy to be open for business, and ran into many friends and Sharon VIPS who were eager to see what there was to buy.  Fresh fish, local produce, gourmet items, and all the convenience items and mainstream brands were represented. The sushi bar isn't open yet, and the baked goods were thin, but the salty oat cookies (with chocolate chips, from Jam) were delicious. The man behind me in the checkout line teased me for how many chocolate items I'd bought - I assured him I'd bought LOTS of vegetables only yesterday... though he could see right through me, I'm sure.

This blog may go dark (again) for a while - one of the obstacles ot my posting has been ongoing computer problems and I've finally given up at trying to fix it myself - it's going back to Gateway for some unknown period of time. I'll be back, eventually!
