Lilac donning her Easter bonnet!:
Not-so-Happy District 4:
Lower Endicott Street:
Ward Street heading into the Canal District:
This Earth Day these filth hot spots will be cleaned up by the best of the best. The next day they’ll be clogged with garbage. A chronic problem!
City Leaders may want to institute FREE GARBAGE PICK UP IN SOME OF OUR INNER-CITY ‘HOODS. The illegal dumping will never go away …
Is it financial hardship that keeps folks from plunking down 10 bucks for city trash bags?
Or: Is it a symptom of something deeper, a kind of depression/malaise that stops our folks from keeping their environs clean?
We can debate the causes all year long. Meanwhile, my neighborhood grows dirtier and dirtier.
So wonderful when our readers show us the love:
Like William here! To hear the enthusiasm in his voice a week ago as he picked up the latest issue of ICT! To be bombarded with his compliments! To experience his intelligence and thoughtfulness! Our readers make it all STILL GREAT. After almost 15 years!
My friend works in a flower shop. She “sent” me these beauties a few days ago for Easter!:
Love the soft peach roses, gal pal!
And love the hundreds of vintage toy trucks and cars – some of them actually antiques dating back to the 1920s – for sale at Unique Finds Antiques and Vintage gift store at 1329 Main St., Worcester. These guys really take you back! Who can remember the Texaco jingle?
Lilac, my tenacious hunter, caught a rabbit (or squirrel?) a week ago:
A brutal, but quick, ending for the little guy. You can’t break your dog of his/her high prey drive. … Lilac slept like a babe that night, true to her soul:
Easter sans Lucinda? Never in a million Easters! Reposting one of my favorite Lu songs!
HAPPY, HAPPY EASTER!
