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!

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!

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!

Now, we can’t say when and if we’ll be back full-time, cause Momma’s been a tad on the busy side.  She said she doesn’t want to bore you with the details, but sometimes humans have things happening.  So, if you feel the need to delete our page from your reader, we won’t be offended.  We’ve got nothing but lots of love for Blogville.

Night night!We hope you all are doing fine and…Till next time!
