This shoe was made for walkin’, but she walked right out of you

While working at a large corporation recently, I noticed how everyone worked, talked, and walked quickly. Walking inside or outside the pace seemed very fast, high heels or not. I couldn’t help but wonder how this one shoe came to

Can’t See the Eyechart?

I never had any problem seeing the chart at my regular eye doc, but couldn’t during a routine exam at a doc-in-the-box. What gives? On closer inspection, the letters and numbers are so blurry that they are filled in and

Maple Cove Sunset

Last night’s sunset brought a spectacular late-summer day to an equally spectacular close at this riverfront location in Red Bank. Out for a cruise in our hand-made cedar strip kayaks, we remarked how few others were out enjoying the river.
