Memories of Business Signs

Each time I drive through Front Royal I think about the friends that I had made back in the day when I used to live there. I wonder if they are still in the area, working or residing in and of course if they are still alive. The older I get the more people I seem to know and love are passing from this earth, which really bites but I’m guessing is normal.

I would really love to know if this one elderly couple that I used to know and love are still running their business signs company or if they have passed it on to one of their surviving relatives if they are no longer to run it for what ever reason. I think I could find the street that their store used to be located on but for some reason I just don’t feel comfortable actually tracking it down. Maybe I am some how scared to know the real answer. If something has happened to them I would be crushed, they were almost like my grandparents for so very long and hated it when I had to leave the area and never saw or heard from them again.

Wooden Swing Sets and Playgrounds

Since 2005 Backyard Playground has been building and selling the most wonderful custom built wooden swing sets in richmond virginia that I have had the pleasure to see and used. I have always had a great experience while dealing with these folks off and online.

When my daughter was much younger and we were looking for a quality playset for the backyard I was told to go and see what Backyard Playground had to offer. It didn’t take long to figure out that they had the best selection at the best price around.

Look at what they have featured online for this month’s selection. It is a Custom Playset with a Bridge from Deck, a 5×6 Playset with lot’s of extras that any kid would totally enjoy for many years.

This is a 5x6 Playset designed to work on pretty extensive slope

Mother’s Kitchen

It’s good to see that the enclume pot rack that I bought my mother several years ago was such a hit for her and her kitchen that I have been spending a good amount of time in this last week. My mother has always taken such pride in her cooking and now that she hasn’t been up to doing much of anything I have been trying to fill her shoes to the best of my ability and without dishonoring her along the way.

My mother’s kitchen has never been big enough to keep her happy so one year I decided to look at those enclume pot racks that are all the rage these days, so that she could hang up a good amount of her pots and pans on it and use her precious cabinets for other necessary things for today’s busy cooks in their kitchens. I was glad to find a good selection of enclume potracks online at that time and got them just in time to give to her for Christmas that year. She was so totally thrilled and made me very proud of my choice for that particular gift giving holiday.

Looking At Guitars For Next Christmas

My daughter has always been interested in learning how to play the guitar and has just let it be known that she is expecting a guitar to be under this year’s Christmas tree. I swear it is the first time I’ve heard that and now I am spending some time looking a various guitars online, which is becoming a real challenge since I know nothing about guitars and had no idea that there were so many out there on the market now.

This should be interesting. Maybe I’ll end up getting her a gift card and let her pick out her own after Christmas when prices are normally much cheaper anyway. That way she will get exactly what she wants, as long as it doesn’t break the bank. Thankfully Christmas isn’t due to arrive for another 6 months. So I’ve got plenty of time.

Memories of Boston Massachusetts

Back in the early part of this new century, my girlfriend’s parents invited me to come along with them to visit some relatives that just moved into one of the newly opened up Boston Luxury Real Estate condos, in the beautiful state of Massachusetts. It was a long drive up there jammed in the back seat with my friend and her mother while her dad and uncle sat up in the front of that big old Cadillac smoking two of the biggest, longest and smelliest cigars that I have ever had the misfortune of having to smell. All in a closed vehicle without even a vent opened or a window cracked for the whole 7 hour drive up there.

I was so grateful that they didn’t repeat the cigar smoking ritual on the return trip back home from this otherwise wonderful week long adventure with their lovely family. They must have had a great Luxury real estate broker in Boston to come onto this awesome luxury Millennium Tower Boston that I will always remember fondly when ever I think of Boston.

I would love to take a tour of some of these places that I am hearing so much about and seeing online as well. I recently discovered a really interesting and enlightening Boston Real Estate Blog that has peaked my interest in that area once again.It’s too bad that Massachusetts isn’t a quick hop, skip and a jump from here so that we could take a nice Sunday drive around the new, as well as the old neighborhoods, like my parents would do with us, back in the day when you could afford gas and you felt like you had all the time in the world to do such a thing.
