World’s Largest Fire Hydrant!

29 Oct 2012 – Happy Bdays Cousin Lock and Grand-niece Kiera

Prayers and thoughts go out to those who are in Sandy’s way. Special greetings to Kiera, whose mom posted this in FB: Last year on Kiera’s birthday it snowed (one of about three days of snow in the entire year). This year it’s Hurricane Sandy. She is convinced that Mother Nature does not like her birthday… Poor Kiera who is turning 9 today!

According to the CNN – Coast Guard official: Hurricane Sandy ‘could be bad, or it could be devastation’. Pelting rains, whipping winds, mass evacuations: There is no doubt that Hurricane Sandy, by Sunday, had already made a mammoth impact on the U.S. East Coast…

Sat: Linn & I had a ladies day outing in town. A fire hydrant, at almost 40ft and five tons, this tilted-by-design public sculpture is not intended to provide a single drop to fight fires. But it’s the largest of three contenders for the largest hydrant title.

There are no tunnels in SC but  this painting on a building by a car-park might be convincing enough that it could be possible! A small charming Farmer’s Market has recently found its place near Main St. Shopping and lunched in town@Blue Marlin Restaurant****an interesting building which was a Seaboard Air-Line Passenger Depot in 1904 and has been in the Register of Historic places since 1983.  Wanted to try this place since a year ago…

Sun: after a so-so sermon took the kids to lunch @China Max in Richland Mall and the only eatery open at the Food Court. This is the first experience in a dead mall but was warned about it by Linn. More important the kids enjoyed the indoor play ground, the food OK but best of all no problems parking and no crowds.

Sophie’s pre-school at Union United Methodist Church in Irmo arranges a pre-Halloween Trunk or Treat. Last year we were there for John and now we are again here for Sophie. A fun evening for the kids on sugar-high and even higher for the real Trick or Treat on Halloween night 🙂
