Walking Home on a Cool, Windy, Sunny Day
Darryl has worked on Market Street for many years. Such a nice guy! I thought about asking him for his photo when he rode by me on the walking bridge, but he waved, called me by name and went on by before I made my decision.
Then, he stopped and turned around. Came back. That made up my mind... it was meant to be. And here he is for your viewing pleasure. I love that Little Joe Tower and beautiful clouds are in the background.
So, I have dozens, no hundreds of photos ready to go, but this is going to be one of those rare days when I post photos on the day I take them.
Had a mid-morning appointment with a foot doctor on the other side of town. Hopped a bus. Yes, of course, ‘cause my foot hurt! One cortisone shot later and the heel still numb from the “number” (wait a minute, that can’t be right!) and the doctor assuring me that I must continue walking, I headed for home on foot.
*(Darryl, I hope I spelled your name correctly. Let me know and I can make a correction, if needed.)

The clock tower at Centerway Square...
Headed for the Centerway Walking Bridge...
I’ll be vacationing for a few weeks and may not be posting, or like last time, I may go ahead and blog about the Maryland-Washington D.C. area. One of the stops I’m going to insist on is the new Wegmans supermarket in Columbia MD. It has a parking garage, escalators for humans and and for carts, and truffles at $999.99 per pound!
We have a terrific Wegmans here in Corning NY. Not just a grocery store, Wegmans is truly a social event. Guys, when do we get truffles or escalators?!
Corning may be a small town (less than 12,000 residents), but Big Flats, just east of Corning is even smaller (less than 7,700+... I wouldn’t have thought that many). Anyways, Big Flats is known for, among other things, TAG’S. Tag’s may look small, but the concert field has the capacity for 6,000 viewers.
Their summer 2012 schedule looks like this...
July 6 ~ Styx, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent
July 22 ~ Gavin DeGraw
July 27 ~ Joe Cocker and Huey Lewis
Sept. 1 ~ Bob Dylan
Sept. 9 ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top
