Hi All – Well, things are winding down in hell week. It’s Friday, and I’m on vacation next week not going back until July 5th!! Wooo Hooo! Yesterday was my and The Viking’s 27th wedding anniversary. He took me out on a dinner date to The Tavern on The Hill in Easthampton for a wonderful meal. The food was excellent and the service stellar!
Long ago, it used to be an ice cream and sandwich shop, and in the spring of 1959, my father proposed to my mother there. They married in 1960. Sorry no pictures – at a heat index of 110 degrees Fahrenheit I was not about to linger outdoors for any length of time.
After we finished the meal I made a point of telling the manager what a superb staff she has. Then we decided to visit my Aunt and Uncle. On the way, we passed through Easthampton itself. Quintessential small town America. I snapped a few photos with my iPhone. Quality’s not great, because of the dang bug juice on the windshield. But here you are anyway:
We also saw an old farmstead on the way. The lighting was perfect, so I had The Viking pull over and took this:
