A GLIMPSE OF PHILLY

Thought I would start something new and every once in awhile give you a glimpse of Philadelphia.  Hope you enjoy these now and then pictures.

Yes, Jimmies.  None of that "sprinkles" stuff for us.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!  Have a wonderful day.  I'll be back tomorrow with a whole post for you.  I'm just so busy these days.  Life happens.

  2. We've been on the Pittsburgh side, and hope to visit Philly someday. All that HISTORY---can't imagine walking those old stone streets, where such plans were made, and such heroes trod. I always think the buildings must smell of old paper and leather and ink from quills and great ideas.

    Were you born in the city?

    1. Yes. I've lived here all of my life. My family has been here since the 1700s.

    2. Great photos! As a native Philly girl I have a tendency to take these for granted.It's nice to see them in a different light. Thanks Kathy! woof
