First, the answer to yesterday’s trivia question is, “Nobody’s perfect.” Didactic sorts (you know who you are) will point out that these word are not being spoken at the exact moment of that photo, but those are the words that are most apropos to me. That being said, what about today’s blog post? Oh dear.
I am having the most dreadful time lately. I feel as if I am dragging myself through each day. As soon as I typed that, I said to myself, “Don’t put that! That’s just whining! Stop whining!” It cannot be denied that I almost always have enough energy to whine about something. That fact should prove to me that I have enough energy for other things, if only I would consent to exert it. So here I am typing, and while I am not exactly dragging each word out of my recalcitrant brain, things are not flowing freely. What, I ask, is a blogger to do? No, really, I’m asking. What should I do? Anybody? Bueller?
When in doubt, look for a picture. After some moments of indecision, I decided on this one:
This is the old Frankfort Town Hall, in Frankfort, NY, which, for non-local readers, is close to Herkimer. In fact, when Steven and I were looking for a house, we looked at several in Frankfort. It is a nice little village, home of the Friendly Bake Shop, the Locavore, the Knight Spot, and other local businesses well worthy of Mohawk Valley Girl’s notice. Alas, this building stands empty now.
I got the picture from The Mohawk Valley Through the Lens, a Facebook page I follow. There are lot of swell pictures there. I picked this one, because I have actually seen the building. Looking through other photos on the page, I found another of a place I’ve been:
This is the Herkimer Marina near Gems Along the Mohawk and the Waterfront Grille, two of my favorite places. I hope to go on an Erie Canal Cruise this summer. I will write a blog post about it if I do.
I see now that I am over 300 words, a quite respectable number for a Wednesday, Wuss-out or not. Additionally, I have to leave soon for rehearsal for Who Shot JS? my latest murder mystery (which I believe I have mentioned once or twice). I hope to see you all on Thursday, which may or may not be of the Non-Sequitur variety.
