Visiting Old Towne
Mom and I decided to go have a look at 'Old Towne" today. It is just the original area of our city and sadly like so many old town areas it is pretty much lifeless. They are actually trying to bring 'Old Towne back and revitalize it, but I don't think it is working as we only found 4 shops open along the whole area. It has that sad run down, neglected and abandoned feel to it but there was lots of new smells and it is an area I have never been before. One thing that was odd though, we came across these two sitting outside a shop, and I barked and said hello and even nudged their hands a little hoping for a pat but they just sat there like dummies ingoring me. Mom would of liked to look in the store but of coarse there was a sign up saying 'no pets allowed" and I didn't want to wait outisde with these two when they were blantly ignoring my attempts at friendship. Mom did see a little Italian Restuarant there too and she said when Dad is home they might have to go and check it it because it had that authentic Italian look to it, with white table cloths on each table.
