Cute Cartoon with a Kiddie Ride as a Prop

October 22nd, 2009

This cartoon is about a year old, but I thought I’d post it anyway. While it doesn’t represent my own political views, I do love it because a coin operated kiddie ride is the prop that makes the whole cartoon funny.

Rides in the Hamptons on Long Island

August 5th, 2009

“Our store, the Sag Harbor Variety Store, has been in operation since 1922. My family purchased the store in October 1970. Sag Harbor is a resort town in the famous “Hamptons” on Long Island, but we have a great year round population as well. Our rides, the firetruck and horse, are a fixture on Main Street. The rides are only 25 cents…so most people treat the kids to at least 2 rides on each!” – Lisa Field
