so as to have the life that is waiting for us."
And so in tribute to Lily, the Pink, I present here a children's lyric from the 1960's .
I love it!
Somewhat irreverant, amuzing and whimsical, and not at all descriptive of the "romance" of my garden's lily, it is actually an ode to Lydia Pinkham's potion or "compound.
Credit for growing these lovelies pink lilies goes to Larry-of-the-green-thumb.

"I'm sure that someone may already have told you about this, but there was a "pop" group in the 1960's in Britain called "Scaffold" whose main claim to fame was that one of them was Paul McCartney's brother and one was the Liverpool poet Roger McGough. However, they had a long-running number one hit with what most people took to be a children's song called LILY THE PINK."
This is the second in the series.
I have a small collection of ephemera ~~ original paper such as ticket stubs, advertising booklets, vintage postcards, photos and more. In the collection are pieces from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. I thought it would be fun to build a fabric postcard using 1930's reproduction fabrics (that I've had for ages) and the related ephemera. This one has a Yellow Cab ticket stub that was good for five days while in Chicago at the Fair ~~ and cost was only $15.75! Just imagine!

One of our favorite spots is an old clam shack in Seabrook called Ceals's that was started just after WWII by a woman who handed down the business to daughter and then to granddaughter.
I suspect it has not changed one iota in over 60 years. It's success in based on a secret recipe for fried clams that is absolutely the finest on the coast.
We were set to match skills at Skee Ball on the board walk -
also an annual event for us.
I beat his pants off with great scores!
That weekend was the official annual challenge of sand sculptures and here are a few photos.
