Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Just finished my Gazebo book - now looking for another subject that attracts me as wel - perhaps I should try the clocks on the streets of Plainville and Southington - ???
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Clocks on the Streets of Bristol - In looking for these clocks on the street I was not only out taking pictures and revising them - but talking to people about these clocks which meant so much to them - especially the newer clocks coming into a community already known as a clock city. I will be adding to this with clocks on the streets of Plainville and Southington within the next few months. My Gazebo book is now completed after 2 years - had fun doing this and love how much I learned -
