Shoot Fifteen - Marshfield Fair

Were you thinking the Big Apple??? Of course you were!!!
Right, Milt, Jim, Michelle, Carol, Elaine, Peyton, Tony M., Joani, and Mike Di.?

"Concentration. . ."

Still at the Fair. . . talk about fixated - look at this youngster! He was determined to take home the prize despite going up against a couple of his elders. I think he's played this before or has one of these at home because he easily beat out the competition.

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

ranslated it means the “Town of the Hurdled Ford,” and the best way to see it is on foot!

situated near the River Liffey

though the city traces its origins to the First Century BC, the city is said to be established by the Norse in about 841 BC.

the city is known for its beautiful architecture, most of it dating back to the 17th century.

home to the famous creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker. You can go through a chilling description of Stoker’s life at the Bram Stoker’s Museum.

If you can’t get enough of this historical city, then go to Kilmainham Gaol. This is the place where prisoners of the 1916 Easter Rising were executed.

Grafton Street is the most famous shopping street here. You can visit the Powerscourt Centre, a shopping centre set inside a restored 18th century town house.

No brainer clue: home to literary giants such as George Bernard Shaw, W.B.Yeats, Jonathan Swift, Samuel Beckett, and Oscar Wilde. Visiting the city’s Writers’ Museum is a must for all bookworms.

A Word to the Wise. . .

as a model for others."

When someone drops something, 
everybody will kick it around 
instead of picking it up!
