Neatness counts

No matter the time of year (or day) they’ve got things tidy at the corner that allows entry into The Retreat, long so popular for eating and sipping in the Village of Liverpool.

The biggest bank in Liverpool?

I promise I can walk on the sidewalk down to the lake in the Village of Liverpool. It’s right behind the snow bank that’s piled up even though we have not had that much white stuff this winter. OK, I ducked low to take the photograph … Not to be tricky or anything, it still…

A fond farewell

Peaking through the winter terrain on Vine Street is the Going Out of Business banners at Bradley’s Jewelers. They’ve been a big part of the Village of Liverpool landscape, for many decades. May you enjoy your well-deserved retirement, good owners.

Sounds like a plan

The latest round of flags are up in the Village of Liverpool. I take note as I take a morning break stroll from my job at the library, and I do know the window to the left has held one of the many hairstyling establishments that dot First Street. The red flag at the corner…

Bunny seems calm

I got up early enough to get to the Village of Liverpool for a pre-work walk the other day. Right off the bat, I spotted a confident bunny. The rabbit practically dared me to take its photo. Happy day, indeed.
