How pathetic is it to have to stop and pee 3 miles into a bike ride having done so before leaving the house? Thankfully I made it the next 22 without having to stop.I like the country theme here. Very fitting.

Mobile Station: Guilford,CT

I have it on good authority that this station consistently has the lowest prices along the shoreline.

So, my son is getting married to this wonderful woman and her sister-in-law gave a wedding shower for her. Full of slender, smiling, vodka punch guzzling lovlies. The day was glorious and it was a great time for all. You should have seen her blush when the gift box with black lace lingerie was opened.

Not your average powder room. This belongs to a wonderful decorator. Very charming.

Art Space: New Haven,CT

Now this is what I call a fun restroom. Like the curly cue toilet rool holder as well.

Antiques Store(no name): East Haddam,CT

I promise this was at the back of the building and there was no one inside or anywhere around. I stopped to look at a bird bath and seized the moment.

Comfortable and smartly self-promotional. I was treated to lunch with the director in a private diningroom.  We did have to take the saran wrap off the plates and serve ourselves drinks and dessert, so I could not claim that it was overly extravagant. You should see the china that a board member commissioned Tiffany's to make for the museum in the '80s. Gorgeous!!

Nothing unusual about the message, but you have to love the messanger.

Six Main: Chester,CT

Following the thread of extra toilet paper, here is a strange way to solve the problem I think. My second visit to this recently opened vegetarian restaurant. Loved my first meal there. Not so keen about this one. I did run into someone yesterday who was raving about her lunch there recently. Maybe I ordered the wrong dishes this time. I will certainly be back.

Wesleyan: Middletown,CT

How spartan can you get...and the bare bulb was, of course, an environmentally correct one. Actually, I love the exhibitions and programming that the Center for the Arts offers at the college. This afternoon I was there for the opening of an exhibition called "Performance Now" curated by RoseLee Goldberg- who was there and spoke briefly- the founder of the Performa biennial of visual art performance in NYC in 2005. That is almost the least of her accomplishments. The exhibition is in the Zihlka gallery into December. You should go.
