It was a beautiful day here in Massachusetts yesterday…not too hot or humid. Greg had to go over to a town a few towns away from ours to run an errand so I went with him. Here are some of the things I saw along the way:
The sky was full of cirrus clouds. At one point I noticed that there was a cloud that was kind of red in the middle of a bunch of regular white clouds so I took a picture of it. What causes this, I have no idea but it’s kind of cool, I think. It was red for a while. Then it turned blue. Then it just went back to being an ordinary cloud. Do you see it there? It's three lines down. I guess it just wanted to assert itself for a little while.
The traffic was horrendous. We thought we would save time if we got on the highway but this is what we encountered once it was too late to get off. It turns out there was a rather serious accident up ahead on the other side of the Turnpike. I guess it was that age-old gawk factor that had us backed up. I hope everyone involved in the accident is okay.
For a while, we were behind a truck from Madbury, New Hampshire. I think that is a funny name for a town – Madbury. I looked on line but couldn’t find an explanation for the name. It made me wonder if, when they named the town, they also considered the names Happybury and Sanebury and those names were voted down by the folks at their town meeting because they wanted the town to have a certain kind of reputation. Probably not, but it’s kind of fun to think about. Anyhow, I highlighted in green the fact that this business’s phone number is 593-EGGS and below the letters (EGGS) they also put the numbers (3447.) I appreciate that. If I ever had to call Siegel Egg Co., I would be very glad that they put the numbers there and I wouldn’t have to translate EGGS into numbers. One of my bugaboos.
On our way home, we went by the Pigmobile for Carl’s Oxford Diner. I ate at Carl’s Oxford Diner once a few years ago. They make one heck of a breakfast in there but, believe me, the Pigmobile is an apt symbol for the place. One of the YELP reviews I read of this place states: “if you order keilbasa and eggs you will get an ENTIRE Keilbasa!” Well, that’s true. And if you order bacon, you get practically a whole pig. So if you are hungry, I would recommend Carl’s Oxford Diner but be prepared to wait in line to get in. Apparently, there are a lot of hungry people in these parts. And, oh yeah, the bus doesn't pick people up and take them to Carl's Oxford Diner. It's just there for show.
That’s what I saw yesterday.
