Children at Play, Adults Lose a Playground

We were out walking along the river yesterday, when we came across children playing. We thought we were green with envy by their youthful games, but it seems they were more so. They seemed to be having a good time, but they really are cold little boys and a girl. We named the dog Bronzy, the ball buster. 

As we returned home, Ron shared some less cheery news. The famous Old Man’s Pub that is across the street has closed for good. The last sign I found on the door was that they were closed for the month of August for the summer holiday. I had to go see for myself. Sure enough…

It has been in existence since 1996 according to the site here. All good things must come to an end. I will miss knowing it is there with live music every night, but honestly, the street has been much quieter at night for the last couple of months.
