Abandoned Kings Park

For Momma’s new job, she has to co-author a book on a little hamlet called Kings Park.  She took a tour with some KP historians a few weeks back and some things that she wanted to show Pops.  So, we went along for the ride.

KP1

This area used to be a large hospital, but it was all self-contained.  The workers lived here, they had their own dairy, their own working farm, a pig slaughter, you name it.  People who were institutionalized worked in all the different places.  Then in the 1980’s. the doors were closed, the patients were literally kicked out, and now the buildings stand ruined.  We just went and visited one little area, but there are over 60 buildings that still stand.

KP2

Momma said it was like being in one of those movies – – the ones where there are no more humans alive and nature takes over everything man built.  Creepy.

KP4

After Momma talked Pops out of sneaking in to the buildings, we hung out in the shade and got some belly rubs.

KP5

KP6

Creepy, but pretty in a way, eh?  You can see all the way to the Long Island Sound.  Pops said next time he’s leaving me and Chuck at home so they can sneak in these places.  Momma said NO THANKS!

Bacon’s Show and Tell

Gooooooood Friday morning!  Well, today’s installment of Bacon’s show and tell is sharing of a moment that happened to you as a child….a what-the-heck-was-I-thinking moment now that you are able to look back upon it.

Childhood fashion is rough my friends.  Especially from the 70s.

Enjoy at my expense….

Christmas In July

I think one of the coolest events in Blogville is Christmas in July.  We’ve been participating since we came aboard (well, except during our break period, but I digress.)  It is the coolest!  Over the weekend, we received our pressies from Higgins and Niles!

Peanut butter

Finnie, girl after my own heart, wanted some peanut butter.

And there seemed to be a little ruckus over the tug ball.

Thank you to our Santas and thank you to Sprinkles for hosting this event!

ANOTHER IMPOSTER

Finnackles here.  Getting tired of reporting how Momma is spending her work day with our four-legged creatures.  BUT, she says she cannot resist!

One night last week, her work place held a band concert and it was rain or shine.  Well, it rained, so it was standing room only for the concert!

SCB

Guess what happened?  Someone brought in this cutie and held her the entire time!  The entire time!!

WHY CAN’T I COME TO WORK WITH YOU MORE OFTEN MOMMA?!?!

Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind

The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind is literally right down the road from my job….on the farm….with all sorts of other animals and smelly things and interesting distractions for guide dogs in training.  You see where this is going….guess who stopped by for a visit and some sniffing and playing and training today?!?  YES!
