I love the dog on the porch. The hamlet of Loch Sheldrake was originally named Sheldrake Pond because a deep, glacially formed pond is in the center of town. It is bordered by the town of Liberty and the hamlets of Hurleyville, Hasbrouck, Divine Corners and Woodbourne.
Some times, my love of post office postcards pays a surprising dividend. With thanks to Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey:
Well, I’m a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me.
