The Mystery Machine

by Jenny 21 September 2018 Podcasts

Hi, this is Jenny again. We saw the Mystery Machine on the Ohio Turnpike this summer. Well, we saw it in camping-trailer form, at least. The man who drove the auto attached to this Mystery Machine resembled Shaggy! Apparently this Mystery Machine is from Pennsylvania. I grabbed these photos when we stopped at the same […]

BRAIN-storming

by Jenny 24 May 2018 Travel

People should come together for . . . zombies. Hear me out. Last year, a Facebook friend asked for suggestions of activities for the kids living in her community.  Ever since, I have BRAIN-stormed for this. And then I remembered the trip that I took to Virginia several years ago in order to spend time […]

“A Season with the Witch”

by Jenny 13 January 2018 History

So, I read this book: “A Season with the Witch: The Magic and Mayhem of Halloween in Salem, Massachusetts,” by J.W. Ocker. J.W. Ocker lived in Salem, Massachusetts with his wife and two young daughters for the full month of October 2015. The author claims an interest in the occult, which is amusing because the […]

3 Après-Halloween Folklore Podcasts

by Jenny 10 December 2017 History

Today I read on Facebook that “marriage is just sharing the same germs” or something to that effect. Anyway, I’ve been laid up with a cold since Thursday night. I spent these days sleeping, screwing around on the internet, and listening to podcasts. Now that Halloween is over, it’s harder for me to find “new” […]

Departure Eve

by Jonathan 5 December 2017 Travel

I just found a short story snippet I wrote in 2013. I was looking for something else (that I didn’t find). I feel like there was supposed to be more, but I didn’t write it. I wish I left myself some notes about the “boring reason” that I didn’t take the boat to St. Ignace […]

Chicago and “Little Chicago”

by Jenny 13 September 2017 History

  Jonathan gave me his camera last night. He came into the possession of his own new-to-him camera.  So, Jonathan and I both have “new” cameras. I hope that the rain holds off this coming Saturday, because I intend to try out my own “new” camera at the New Kensington Corridor of Innovation Art & […]

I Didn’t Ask About the Serial Killer (But I Wanted To)

by Jenny 1 July 2017 History

  When Jonathan and I visited Chicago in June, I took a boat tour through the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF). Several groups provide architecture boat tours in Chicago. I found no large difference in the ticket prices. I googled the reviews for 3 of these operators, and they all had high marks. To be honest, […]

Confessions of a Train Passenger

by Jenny 25 June 2017 Travel

  I like to watch and listen to strangers in public. At the park. In restaurants. In stores. On the train. Several years ago, I rode the Amtrak by myself from Washington, D.C. to Pittsburgh. The Capitol Limited. I sat in the coach section.  A man and woman sat behind me. They were both white […]
