Yet...another Monday

...with bad news related to last weeks post. The beautiful Gazebo you see in the background was destroyed on Thursday. A truck parked up on the hill was NOT placed in park, only the emergency brake was applied and it failed, causing the truck to roll down the hill and BOOM....

This is a landmark in Salem...the original one was built in 1841 and was on the old Courthouse lawn, later it was moved and for many years a local band played regular concerts in it.

It will be rebuilt...right now it's still laying in a heap where it once stood.

Oh a happier note....wish my lovely husband a Happy Birthday will ya?

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'

So much here went down because of storms. I'm so sorry a careless act took down a landmark!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lovely Husband!!!!!! Wishing you many more. The gazebo was such a tranquil spot. Shame.
