*Neighbors in this area are keen on setting off fireworks on lovely summertime evenings. On the night of full moon, there was a real extravaganza.
Early in the month, my Brooklyn sis came for a visit.
The two of us took a tour of the Ephrata Cloister, a nearby historical spot. We marveled at the story of this cloistered group of people who lived during part of the 1700's and the 1800's.
I must confess, Dear Reader, at the end of our tour, my sis and I rushed out to continue on our hedonistic way...eat a lavish (relatively speaking, you know) and delightful lunch, go shopping in the "chocolate town" of Lititz, eat chocolate, and pay to have our toenails painted purple!**
**Sisters giving pedicures to sisters.
*Okay, yes, well you might ask: "Er, didn't this group quickly die a natural death, with no young 'uns squalling to take the place of the old!?" (Questioner Dear, I'll tell you about that tomorrow.
Now go lie down on your hard wooden shelf and get
your meager sleep!)
