Cheers, Orange fellow

I cast my eyes up during a safe walk around the Village of Liverpool and feel good seeing the Orange figure on the roof of The Retreat. The No. 44 and and Syracuse colors make me smile, even in this trying season for the Orange football squad.

Such a contrast

It does amaze me, during a late October safe walk in the Village of Liverpool, how some Second Street trees steadfastly hold on to their green, while right across the corner the yellows will soon all have succumbed to the seasonal pull.

I can practically hear the autumn song

When a line of trees change color at the same rate, it’s like a chorus hitting their notes together perfectly. That’s the thought that struck my during a late October safe walk in the Village of Liverpool, staring down the line flanking Washington Park.

Multi-colored tree

This tree on the side of First Street in the Village of Liverpool caught my eye during a late October safe walk because of the purples. And greens. Together, high and low, in the same tree. Beautiful.

It takes a Village

Yes, I’d hang a banner and welcome people to this fall scene, too. As long as they came with the proper amounts of caution, of course, as this corner is just a few strides from my library workplace.

The puns are back

One little step back in the blocks around my library job in the Village of Liverpool: The recent return of the pun signs at the corner in front of the pet store. Oh, how I missed the humor on my work break safe walks.

Construction season has restarted

The construction facelift approved for this corner in the Village of Liverpool took a hiatus for the virus. But the upgrading in the block around the corner from my job at the library is going strong now. Looking better.

Looking kind of busy

Walking back to where I’d parked my car outside the library on Tulip Street after a short, socially distanced stroll at Onondaga Lake Park, I took note that on a Friday morning … … there might have been more hustle and bustle than I had anticipated.
