SEEN IN NEW HOPE


New Hope is located along the route of a road called 202, the  main way between Philadelphia and New York City. It was generally regarded as the halfway point, where travelers would stay overnight and be ferried across the Delaware River the next morning. New Hope was first called "Coryell's Ferry", after the owner of the ferry business. The current name came into use following a fire in 1790 that destroyed several mills in the area; their reconstruction was considered a "new hope". The fair hamlet here has never been boring. The residents have always made it interesting,from the days of George Washington crossing the Delaware River,to distant relative Aaron Burr, to the likes of a group of New York City writers, critics, actors, and wits of "The Vicious Circle" like Charles MacArthur, Dorothy Parker, and Alexander Woollcott. Oscar Hammerstein held a residence here as well has James A. Michener, Odette Myrtil, George Nakashima,Stan and Jan Berenstain of the children books and the lovely singer, Christina Perri. We pride ourselves on being all inclusive...motorcycle gangs mingling with suburban moms and drag queens, gay with straights, the butch guys sitting with member of the trans community. And there is always something interesting to see.

Need a light?
The motorcycles will line the street like 50 in a row!

Oh Dear!
Yes, a moped for sale in a shop. Right next to the witchcraft shop.
Remember.....
Other signs in stores.....
I now know why I love our town.
Come here to be classy. It's cheap!
I got Christmas gifts for all my readers...two for Anne Marie!
Except Cali-Boi. He's getting this one.
I couldn't pass up on these gems for the giving away price of $10!!!! I even wore them through town and over the bridge with a tank top and shorts!
A Joan Crawford cut out along the canal!
Then yesterday Daddy Warbucks arrived in town for a week in this....
He has renewed my faith in a gentleman with true style and taste..... not to mention the chic design of a car still lives!!!!! Get the big glasses and head scarf ready girls. He will be here for a week before heading to LA for business then back here as we will depart for Costa Rica.

  5. Me again.

    "We pride ourselves on being all inclusive...motorcycle gangs mingling with suburban moms and drag queens, gay with straights, the butch guys sitting with member of the trans community."

    I do wish more places were like that.

  9. Good God, my shopping trips are nothing like this. Sadly, we don't have anything like that here where I live.

    Nice shoes, BTW. I approve!

  11. Since then, I have never seen another town like New Hope. I enjoyed it when you took me there. But don't you think that gift is a bit small for me?

  12. I'd break my ankles in those heels!!! They are sharp though. New Hope is one of the areas jewels that's for sure. It'a always a good time.

  15. New Hope always looks so lovely in your photos. Very cosmopolitan.
    What I want to know is: Did you mirror Joan's pose when you sashayed past in those killer heels?!

  17. Im honored. I never had a penis loofah! New Hope sure looks interesting. I need to make a trip there one soon I hope.

  18. Quirky little town and looks like the whole town has a sense of humor. A lot of cities could also take a page about diversity from New Hope's book. Quite colorful characters through there.

  20. Oh great...I'll never get out of the shower now.

  21. I was just thinking that it would be fun to get a couple of those large penises and use them as markers to the entrance to my lane ways, certainly would have the neighbors talking!

  22. Oh my dear, the life you lead. And those shoes will go great with that car. Two perfect accessories.

  24. My parents used to love to go to New Hope to shop. Had I known the real New Hope, I would have gone with them!

  25. Did you test out those "gifts" before purchasing?

    The vintage jag is sharp as hell.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Those heel are lovely! But is that dildo molded after your junk?
