Five Things: Update: Marketplace is Open

New Grinder Business, Mitt in the Dog House, Vacation Memory

  1. Sunny skies today, high 37F. Winds WNW at 20 to 30 mph. Mainly clear skies tonight, low 18F. 
  2. The new owners of Pumpkin Hill Marketplace called to say they are open for business today, and Ray’s New Haven-Style Pizza is shooting for early February, in time for the Super Bowl.
  3. Those aren’t the only changes coming to the Gallup Hill Road center. Bear’s Place Package Store is planning an expansion, according to the center’s owner, and a new grinder wholesaler is planning to locate between the market and the package store. Watch for our story.
  4. Actually, I don’t remember LBJ picking his dog up by the ears. Although I do remember LBJ's ears – they were enormous. Just not much use to him when it came to listening to the voices of reason. Anyway, did you take our poll? It’s about Mitt Romney and a dog he strapped to the top of his car nearly 30 years ago.
  5. When we were kids and went on vacation, we had our dog right in the back seat with us where he belonged. I remember his incessant panting – no air-conditioning in those days – and his foot-long tongue painting our bare ankles with dog drool.

Years ago we moved from North Carolina to New York and put our dog, a collie, in a U-Haul. Probably not the smartest or safest thing to do. We had a small VW station wagon 2 kids etc. Thankfully all made it to NY safely and non the worst for wear. We stopped often to check on the dog. I guess when you are young sometimes common sense doesn't always win. Not saying Romney was right nor were we.
