@n566192l, I remember the Slinky!  Oh yes, great fun and hours of fascination.

 

It's Slinky, It's Slinky
for fun the best of the toys.
It's Slinky, It's Slinky

the favorite of girls and boys.

 

Do they still do a Mummers Parade in Asbury Park?  I remember seeing it years ago.  60s perhaps?

 

@Frozenoem, what a beautiful clear starry night to experience.  Kudos on a great picture.

68* and sunny an improvement over last night or this mornings 40-ish, went up to Rangeley and Upton for photos of Northern Lights.

 

Glad I used my tripod, bit of a nip to the air.

Hi, All on the porch,

Guess we'll be closing this one when Dave gets a chance to get the next one ready.

Saturday was another nice day to add to the Labor Day weekend. Friday was pretty hot, but with the lower humidity, I didn’t mind that as much. I did have to close the sliding door and put on the AC in the family room Friday night while I was working and watching TV. The neighbors next door were having a huge BBQ and the noise and smell of smoke was drifting in. I didn’t want to have smoked doll clothes to put up on Ebay! LOL.

Had my coffee on the porch yesterday morning which was so delightful, and then my wine out there in the evening.  I'd do the coffee again today out there, but I have to get ready to list my auctions on Ebay.

On Friday, a customer in Canada bought 7 of my doll outfits with a “Buy it Now!” Wahoo! Life is good. N.

Greetings,

Does anyone remember the slinky, well August 30th was National Slinky Day. Growing up my siblings and I used to race them down the stairs.  Things sure have changed. The simplest little toy used to keep us entertained for hours. I think there was even a jingle. 

Hope everyone is enjoying life and is safe. 

New Jersey has been great weather wise 👍👏. I was able to pack and send some boxes .  

Just going to a BBQ today, some of my friends are putting on a small concert. Oh course, this is after the weekly share in Asbury Park. Enjoy your day and please be Happy and Safe.

Good morning to Everyone on Our Front Porch!

Wishing you all well this last day of the month of August.  Over the past week or so, temps here have been in the mid to upper 70s which truly makes for very comfortable days indeed.  Gone are those sweltering days of 90 and 100 degrees.  They are now, for me,  just a distant memory.  And that's okay with me!

 

Still have so many projects in and around my home which at the beginning of Spring, I had such great ambitions to tackle and complete.  Now, I'll be lucky to get one or two of the major ones done.  For as we are moving closer to Fall, I feel myself slowing down and my gusto...not so. Smile.  But I am glad for the projects I did get done and am just happy to still yet be here!

 

So for everyone rising this morning to meet another beautiful day, I say "Rise and Shine!"   And have a great day and enjoy August's last weekend.

 

Lydia

75* and partly cloudy, admit it have been practicing breathing and movement again.

 

Looking forward to and charging batteries on cameras for another shot at Aurora , come Saturday and Sunday evenings. Supposedly viewable in parts of Maine, Vermont and perhaps even NY state. New Jersey I just don’t know about, looks like a good show if clouds remain away🤣.

Good morning everyone on the Front Porch on this last Friday of August, 2019! Yesterday was an all around great day for golf and being outside.

Have you all been planning anything special for the Labor day weekend?

We will have a getaway with our family over the weekend. Some golf with my two son-in-laws on Sunday and a cookout. 

Hoping you have a restful weekend and stay safe if you are in the path of the incoming hurricane or other bad weather. 

Tonight will be the open game of the Wisconsin Badger's football season .

Go Bucky Go!
