Tuesday, March 27, 2018 / 10 comments

On Saturday, March 24th one of the #MarchForOurLives rallies took place in Morristown, New Jersey. 

Protesters came with clever signs and a real sense of accomplishment amongst the surprisingly large crowd. About 13,000 marchers showed upMorristown was one of about 800 sibling marches to the main one in Washington, DC.

It was a cold day but with blue skies and bright sunshine. Drones flew overhead, speeches were made, and determination for real change pervaded the crowd. 

First, we gathered in front of town hall.

Back in the 1980s, there was a fresh new face on the music scene! Cyndi Lauper debuted her solo career with this instant classic!

It was so fun, fresh, and now that the day after I first saw that video I danced down to the record store in the mall and bought the album! Yes, a vinyl record!

Fosterfields is a living historical farm located in beautiful and historic Morristown, New Jersey. In the first photo of this post, B.J., the very friendly farm cat, is front and center, and Calvin the horse is poking his head through the door. His companion, an almost identical horse with a missing left eye, Hobbes, is inside the stall (yes, they were named Calvin and Hobbes after the comic strip -- my favorite!)

I think churches are some of the most fascinating buildings in any town, partially because they tend to be the oldest buildings. You rarely see churches torn down. They also tend to be lovingly maintained, and since they are old, the architecture of the buildings is very interesting.
