Learnt about the LaconiaFriendly’s” closing from the “Daily Sun”. Was quite surprised. Always appeared to do a decent business. We had eaten there earlier this year.

I have no problems with “Friendly’s“. I actually quite like their menu. For 5 – 6 years “Friendly’s” was Teischan’s unconditional favorite. Only place she wanted to eat. Only place she wanted to have her birthdays. I know we had at least 3 birthdays for her at “Friendly’s”. Then, suddenly, this year she decided that “Friendly’s” was not hygenic enough for her! She is beyond fussy. If she sees a dirty glass … that is it. Kiss of death. She will not eat there again. So, we haven’t been to “Friendly’s” in 4 to 5 months. But, I am sure that it is not the lack of our patronage that is causing them to close down all these restaurants.

I read that they now only have one “Friendly’s” in Maine … one in Cape Cod. Those, to I, appear to be prime markets to “Friendly’s”.

Shame. Good place for kids. Decent food. Reasonable prices.

I Have Become Totally & Hopelessly Hooked On “Ketchup Sriracha” Style.

by Anura Guruge


Target has it for under $3.00.


I happened to be passing the Walmart clearance shelves (in their food department) when my eyes caught this. I like Sriracha. I used to always order the Sriracha Burger at Friendly’s. Walmart had it marked down to $1.50 or maybe it was 92 cents. I just took it for the heck of it.

I tried a bit when I got home. It lit up my world. It is good. Really good.

Yes, of course, I like spicy food. Spicy food bothers me none. So, I am a natural for this.

I have been eating it on all sorts since.

Delighted to see that I can buy more, at a reasonable price, from Target.

You really should try it. It will spice up your world.

Flowers Of Concord, New Hampshire — June 13, 2018.

We were in Concord, NH, the evening of Wednesday, June 13, 2018 to attend the “Summer of Love” concert at the “Capitol Center for the Arts“. Teischan, as is her regular wont, wanted to eat at Friendly’s rather than anywhere else (mainly because she likes the ice cream). So, we went to the Friendly’s at South Main Street. All these pictures were taken around Friendly’s — within the block! I did not venture far.

P.S., The concert was fantastic. I will post more pictures of that tomorrow.

Wendy’s, Concord (NH) Was Streaming News & Stock Market Quotes From 6-Days AGO!

Very strange. Inexplicable, weird and kind of disconcerting.

We were in Concord today and Teischan, given a choice of what and where to eat, quite surprisingly chose Wendy’s — even though we had suggested her usual favorite, Friendly’s.

They have changed the menu and I am not sure whether it is for the best (and I do happen to own Wendy’s shares).

They, as is their practice, had two large TVs. It was streaming news and stock market happenings including stock prices. I had not checked any stock in a few hours but seeing Google down $15 did not seem right. I didn’t get too excited to begin with. I then saw some references to the trade war with China! That seemed wrong. I had heard, in the morning, that we had declared a truce on that. Ahhh!

Then I happened to notice the day and time. May 15. It was May 21. The time was also wrong.

Tried to explain this to an oriental manager. He was not too conversant with the English.

Strange ….

Taking Selfies My Way — Part XXV, Steeplegate Mall, Concord, NH — March 22, 2018.

It was somebody’s birthday yesterday, March 22nd, and we ended up going to Steeplegate Mall, Concord twice in the day. Once in the morning to get her ears pierced and then a few hours later so that she and two of her friends could gallivant before dinner at Friendly’s.

Took these selfies on the 2nd visit. Plenty of time for me to just drag my heels — and they have a lot of mirrors in those stores. So …

No, I did not buy those shades, BUT maybe I should go and get them. They are very me.
