Song sung blue

All right. This is one of the more interesting sunsets I’ve seen albeit it a subtle one. As it turns out, my mouse sent a very similar pic from the ocean off North Carolina. Except it probably isn’t an actual sunset there because that shore faces east. Very similar pic though.

Among other things, I did a recycle run today and then I did a little exploring before I headed back out to the moomin. When I was a young child, my parents owned a piece of property on the western end of Sault Ste. Siberia. “The Lot.” (I *think* we owned it.) I think the plan was to build on it but we never did. We did drove past it quite frequently. We had to drive past Sherman Park over to the Lakeshore Drive subdivision. I used to know EXACTLY where The Lot was but I cannot really find it now although I can certainly find the Lakeshore Drive sub. I’m wondering if “The Lot” was private property then (ours) and has since become part of Sherman Park. Alas, I can’t really ask anyone.

I’m not sure what all of the machinations involving our (infrequent) moves were but… At some point we sold “The Lot” (assuming we ever actually owned it but I think we did). My parents were within minutes of closing on a house up on “The Hill” but lost out. I was happy. I really really really did not want to move out of our shabby little Superior Street bungalow. It was across the street from my school, Stinkin’ Lincoln, and I did NOT want to move schools. And I loved living on the scrappy south side of Sault Ste. Siberia, where I had good friends. And quite a few adversaries. Like the FOUR Waisenen boyz down the alley from us who were accomplished rock throwers.

So we didn’t move up on “The Hill.” We stayed in the shabby bungalow until I was in college and my grandparents were dead and then my parents moved up into their house on “The Hill.” Instead of spending money on upgrading to a new house when I was a kid, we built the moomincabin. I think that was a wise choice.

    Things would have been so different if it hadn’t worked out the way it did. My parents almost bought a building lot in a totally different area of town; if they had, I would have gone to different schools and had different friends and experiences. Kind of a weird though. Lovely sunset!
