Delaware, OH park system: Mingo Park


Although Dan was mentioned

recently in connection to Sears

department  and  hardware

stores, I already had this

pre-scheduled and cannot

skip over this lookalike dog!

Some posts this week will include

someone who the post inspired

me to feature and dedicate to.

This pretty red Irish Setter

named Mickey helped me

think of Dan Antion’s

Thursday’s Doors ~ July in the ‘burbs


Approaching this house from the

north, walking on the sidewalk

I give an inaudible “sigh!” and

happy smile to the runner as

she passes! This will be one 

of my featured homes

from the suburbs of

Cleveland, Ohio.

Here’s someone

who often shows

an example of

doors which take

my breath away,

Norm Frampton:


Norm will have blue frog links

to other people’s door choices.

Have a lovely rest of your 

week.  I hope your

weekend  leads  you

along pretty garden paths.

Do you remember

“The Five Little Peppers?”

A famous book series,

written in years,

1881 ~ 1916,

made in years,

1939 ~ 1940.

Robert and Rosalie.

Married in 1955,

adding a daughter named

after her father, Robert:

Robin Elizabeth Oldrieve.

(Hence, reocochran is

current email address).
Then, along came a baby

brother Randy.

A teacher and NASA engineer

thought a third baby was in order.

So, along came a third baby R:

Like reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic!

Robin, Randall and Richard.

We had fun at the

“Soft Opening”

squinting from setting sun.
