Merrily I go round 'n round

Ive been  on a merry-go-round for the last two week and it wasn’t Jane’s Carousel!!! I have been back and forth between NYC and OG at least 4 times and it’s not over yet.  Just a few of these jaunts were Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday in Manhattan, leave Thursday morning for Ocean Grove.  Drive back to the City on Saturday night so I can  go to the Pinkalicious Birthday party and then drive back to Ocean Grove.  Tuesday night I drove home and my plan is to return to New Jersey on Thursday.

It’s bad enough that the toll for the Lincoln Tunnel is now $12.00 -( an obscenity and now I have to check my EZ pass account to see how much money the state is taking out of my checking account), the worst part is waking up in the middle of the night and not being sure what bedroom I’m in and where is the bathroom?

This is life in the fast lane, but not the fun jet set lane…this is the road to work and back.  So if the posts to this blog seem spotty lately, now you know why.

A couple of weeks ago, we had several out of town guests visit us in Ocean Grove for a day.  We strolled along the Boardwalk and eventually we ended up in Asbury Park.  It’s  always fascinating to roam around the old Casino and the Carousel.  I had my camera with me and decided to try to take some arty photographs.

This time I really noticed the extensive bas relief on the exterior of the Carousel; the horses, the sun faces and even sections of the buildings took on a new look when captured in the camera’s eye.  My friend Murray also took some and you’ll know right away who the pro is!  I always give photo credit but you won’t need it to pick his out.
