This is Devanee’s (18) third year on the “Prospect Mountain” “Bob (319)” team (with the orange sweatshirts). She is in charge of media relations.

This was the third ‘Battle of the Bay’ we have thus attended. They do a good job organizing it and a lot of people attend. It was fun.

This was at our (i.e., Alton, NH) ‘Recycle Center’ (i.e., ‘Dump‘) no-charge (i.e., ‘free’) Swap Shop. It was inside, but I carried it out to get better light. It was heavy.

It was in bad shape.

We already have a few working typewriters in the house and I didn’t want one that was this beat up. Appears that I MIGHT have been able to sell it on eBay for a $90! But, that is OK. I hope someone more deserving will get that opportunity.

I am just glad to share these pictures with you.

Wonder what words were typed on this machine. Just think about that. Every typewriter has a tale to tell … not counting all the tales it already has told.

It was a good Halloween. Compared to some past years the weather was pretty close to ideal — dry and in the mid-40Fs. It also didn’t get dark till close to 6pm. In terms of decorations this was probably the best I have seen in Alton. Some folks had gone all out. Thank you.

Funnily enough, I didn’t think it was as busy as prior years. When we were leaving Main St. around 6:15pm, the road was not that busy. Usually it is thronged. But, I am sure everybody had a great time. There was a LOT of candy — though I can honestly say that I did not have even one BITE!

Deanna saw this on the Web. Some pretty neat antique toys — NOT that I want any of them, anymore. I have a few similar. We no longer have the space.

We went to one of these “603 Estate Sales” in June in Alton — had a lot of fun and made out like BANDITS. We were there at the end and they basically gave us a ton of stuff for $15 (I think). At that stage they just wanted to get rid of as much stuff as they could.

Sadly the weather is not going to be nice on Saturday. That might be a damper. Sunday might be ‘OK’ but all the good stuff would be gone by then since I am sure diehard collectors will be queing up for this Sale in the rain.

More Autumnal Flowers From Alton (NH) — Very Few Words.

I took all of these, bar the yellow lily, this afternoon at the Alton Hannaford. [The lily was at the McDonald’s across the ‘road’.] So, I am using my Sony a7 II, with the big 90mm lens, kneeling down, when I hear this voice saying: “aren’t we so lucky“. We was, of course, talking about the flowers. I had to agree.

So …

Aren’t we so lucky to have such flowers ….
