What I've been up to.....


Well, first - I was on grand jury duty. Most educational and depressing.
But, I can find stash at the darnedest times. Went to check out the Chinese
place (won't go back) but did find Stitched In Stone - a quilt shop with
floss and yarn.
Also went to the Ben Franklin Ace Hardware in Raymond NH on the way one
night - what a strange store, clothes, hardware store stuff, toys and yarn
and fabric and floss and such....
And Knitter's Garden - great little yarn shop in Chester NH. Need lots more
time to explore it.
And finally, I'm helping Sue at Contoocook Needlework with inventory. I'm
counting floss. It's fun and restful. And I get to fondle lots of floss.

Ah. My Ben Franklins!
I've been shopping here in the summertime since the store was built. The family summer place is about 3-4 miles away. And we'll be sitting there. And someone will say what about Pizza by George? And we always stop in to browse in Bens. Love the eclectic mix of that store.You never know what you're going to find.

I'd want him too.
I still have fabric from when they closed. I got yards and yards of lovely stuff at pennies on the dollar.

Yes. If you're hungry, I would definitely check them out. The pepperoni rolls are so good. And you can get these amazing pizzas by the slice.

I haven't thought about Ben Franklin in years. There was one in the town where I went to college....hmmmm too many years ago. Who knows when it closed. The last time I drove through New Wilmington there was a tanning salon downstairs and ....not sure what upstairs.

Pizza - don't get me started!
I grew up in the NYC 'burbs, with amazing pizza. My kids actually believed Papa John's, Domino's, and Little Caesar are real pizza, rather than cardboard smeared with sweetened tomato paste and not enough cheese of not-very-high quality. When I would get pizza from the "real" pizza place, they'd make a big deal of blotting the top with napkins. I believed if a.) you can't fold a slice in half and b.) grease isn't running down your arm, it ain't REAL pizza!! (c. Would be, if you can bite it apart within six inches of your face, as opposed to having a string of cheese forming an umbilical cord between your face and the pizza slice!)
Them days are gone...

Lucky me!!! I actually have a pizza joint that's just a short distance from my house that emigrated here from New York. They are complete with oilcloth tablecloths (under glass) and street signs from Little Italy in Manhattan. They actually make real pizza and for me still the best.

I only had it once before I caee to the USA in 1961. It was called pizza pie, and my FBF's MOm made it. Not exciting. I had it later in the US, not impressed, Had it by Lake Magggiore, not impressed.
Guess it is not my cup of tea.....a good shepherds pie, well that us different.

NOT FAIR, Bruce. I haven't had that for years, and would sell my soul for one, I think. There are some British foods I really miss............and that is a top priority one. Good kippers; smoked haddock; English bacon; those nice little pork pies....................I guess after 40 years I can still drool at the memories.LOL

Too funny. I hope you enjoyed every bite of your pizza. And didn't get any grease on your fabrics.
@Cheryl. If you ever get as far east as Biddeford, ME - our favorite place for pizza is Pizza by Alex. We each order our own.
