Around My Town - Northford

Not long ago, Chance posted pictures of his town and he tagged us all to post pictures of our own towns so that we can see where we all live and the places that we frequent!

Mom had to run errands today so it was the perfect opportunity to grab the camera and get some shots for all of you!









We only live about a mile from the center of Northford so it's always a quick trip for us to visit the post office or the bank!

Our first stop was the gas station. I know some of you get cookies at your gas stations but ours doesn't pass them out! Somebody needs to put this bee in their bonnet!















Our next stop was the bank. It's in this complex with a bakery and a laundromat and an Italian deli and several other small stores.















We're at the drive-in window waiting for that nice lady to put a cookie in that drawer and push it out to me!















My favorite teller hadn't arrived yet so I only got one cookie today instead of two! Bummer!

The next stop was our local drug store! This is where my dad gets all of his heart meds to keep
his transplanted donor heart healthy!












Next was the Northford grocery store to buy a half gallon of milk. It's a real old fashioned store and it's so convenient for that last minute item that mom is always forgetting!
















We're all done with the errands and we're heading towards home. We're just passing my vet's office on our right! I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing living this close to my vet!

















Here we are in my driveway! That's my mailbox! Can you see our burning bush? That's the stunning red bush in all of it's glorious autumn color! That red barn across the street belongs to Marty, my Cairn Terrier friend!














Home at last! This is my house!
So this is some of my small town of Northford!
Thanks for running errands with me! Hope you enjoyed it! Who wants to be next?
So until next time.................
Love ya lots,
Maggie

Nice photos Maggie!! We love your burning bush too. Ours is starting to drop it's leaves now. Looks like you have a nice little town there. We live between 2 very small towns. 3 miles from one town, 4 miles from the other. Both are VERY BORING! hehehehe. Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Oh that was a very nice "trip" through your town..I feel like I know you better now.
I think that all New England towns are so cute.
Thank you for posting a neighborhood post.

Snowball said...

you town looks pretty convenient with everything nearby but the negative part of it is that you dun get long rides or to visit new places... hee hee...

My town looks very different. I will try to get my jie jie to post it for me but she is being lazy.

Jackson said...

Hey M&M, your home town looks very pretty. I think I'm going to complain to the Dog Union cos I NEVER get any treats at the bank. Maybe I should contact their head office and tell them I'll withdraw my custom. Oh, I forgot, I don't even have a bank account! J x

Faya said...

It is beautiful Maggie ! Mitch you live in a fabulous town ! Your house is just great !
Waouw !!!!

Stanley said...

Hey, girl!

I love seeing where you and Mitch live. Now I can really picture you guys in my mind when you talk about all the places you go.

Where did your mama get that burning bush? Its bootiful!

Goober love,
Stanley

Rudy said...

Hi Maggie --

Wow is gas that expensive where you live??? We're not that far behind you, Mom is in shock. Good thing we drive a Jeep Wrangler although the ride is rather bumpy!
You'd die of boredom if you saw where I live even though it's a suburb of Washington DC. That's why Mom takes us out to agility class to keep us from being too bored.

Love
Rudy

jaffeboy said...

Beautiful town you live in.

Drive through bank? Neat! Cookies at the counter is even better!!!

Oh, where is Mitch while the girls run errands?

Boo said...

Cookies at the bank??? I'm coming to live with you two.

Was that a wistful look you were giving the vets, or were you just appraising it for a quick escape route for future reference?

Clover said...

Ooh, thanks for taking us with you on your errands! How fun!
And cookies, gas stations give cookies?! I don't think gas stations in my city do that.
And your drive-through banks have PEOPLE in them?! Who give cookies out?! Wow, we are moving...
Love Clover xo
