St. Louis And Home

November 5th, 2012 14 comments

You know, Sandy’s devastation in the Northeast has harmed so many, but we have received so many thoughts and prayers from those reading our little blog to those who suffered loss in New Jersey and New York. Those of us unscathed in the Midwest are thinking about you guys. We know you will prevail as you have in the past.

Timeless message...

Timeless message...

We had heard about the Stoughton Opera House… and it was all good. Not only were we not disappointed, it exceeded our expectations. I love the feeling of small town America… it is one of the many windows in time that shows where we come from and who we still are. Of course, this is just one of the evolving Americas. Think, New York City, Chicago, Galveston… home for immigrants all. But this… reminds me of my grandparents who came to small towns in Connecticut and the UP in Michigan.

Yeah, the hits just came coming… as we set up, I looked around and took some pictures.

Is this detail, or what... and all volunteer work
