  1. Lovely river photo down in that little village called Manchester ... which seems strange, because for me Manchester is a great, big, busy city over here in England. Have a great week, Bonny

  26. ArtMuseDog is looking cute as usual. I enjoy the harbor with the boats and beautiful blue water, and the poetry. Trees are smart enough to rest part of the year, and to put down deep roots.

  29. Carol, I love the photo of the "Quaint' Little Village" there's nothing like these quaint little New England towns. My Dad grew up in Mattapoisett, MA...another beautiful little town in MA. Most of my family, still live there. Thanks for sharing and also for taking time to visit my blog today.

    Your harbor at Manchester (village) looks so peaceful. Back in the early 60's when I lived in Manchester, N.H, it was also quaint. Compared to where I came from, it was tiny and quaint (80K vs. 450K+/-). Our top ten Texas towns are,in order,
    Houston 2,195,914, 4.55% Growth (But our Metro area is over 6.3M)
    2 San Antonio 1,409,019, .15%
    3 Dallas 1,257,676, 5.0%
    4 Austin 885,400, 2.02%
    5 Fort Worth 792,727, 6.95%
    6 El Paso 674,433, 3.90%
    7 Arlington 379,577, 3.87%
    8 Corpus Christi 316,381, 3.66%
    9 Plano 274,409, 5.61%
    10 Laredo 248,142, 5.10%

    Galveston is sort of Quaint,
