Friday Hunt, 2016-10

Every Friday at 19:00 hours CST, we are treated to Teresa's very fun photo meme, Friday Hunt. Here, we are given our subjects to find where we can. I think I have found a unique set of subjects, and I found representatives for each. So, for the week of March 4th we have...

Starts with J
7 January 2011
12 January 2011

27 January 2011. Our driveway from wheelchair height...
Well, January starts with ‘J’, and I am choosing views from January, 2011. With snow, and more of the same. The winter of 2010-2011 began with more than 12 in/30 cm of snow on four occasions: December 26, 2012, January 7 , 12 and 27, 2011. And to make the snowy saga even more interesting, a big-ish ice storm was to occur on Feb. 3, so we spent $275 to have two guys shovel the roof so that the ice would help to collapse the roof. That’s my ‘J’ story :)

Week's Favorite

Pasquale Battaglia remembered, Ansonia City Hall
Connecticut US Senator Blumenthal was at an event in Ansonia last week to preset awards the survivors of WWII veteran Pasquale Battaglia, who died last year at the age of 99.

The life-long Ansonia resident was honored during a ceremony in aldermanic chambers at City Hall. The photo is a beautiful montage of war era photos of Battaglia, a patriot and great guy…there more pics on Page 2 of our new Valley-Voice CT newsletter...

A cuppa…

Well, there are a few cups on this restaurant table. The place is the now closed The Original Antonios in downtown Ansonia. The owners have relocated to anew space about 15 miles away, but here is the obligatory desert view from October, the tiramisu and the bag of donuts - fresh fried dough with cups of caramel, chocolate and raspberry to dip the still warm donuts in. With a cuppa of cappuccino in the background - a perfect cappuccino with only steamed milk and a hint of cinnamon. No whipped cream for me here!


  1. Mmmm, those deserts look so really good. I'm sorry that handling the snow got so expensive for you. We around here have been talking about not having a freeze yet this winter. Our plants, flowers, and trees have been green and blooming all winter long.

  2. my doesn't that January snow look inviting

  3. WOW! Now that is some snow! Forget about the cuppa, hand over the goodies!!! Have a great weekend.

  4. Oh, those desserts look delicious! I'll have a fresh donut dipped in something please!

  5. You've had your fair share of snow by January, only get that much in northern Ontario. Yummy treats with your cuppa and I always forgo the whipped cream as well.

  6. That was a lot of snow! Glad this year isn't as bad. That is quite the tribute to the soldier. Very nice. That dessert looks yummy! Thanks for joining Friday's Hunt. I always enjoy seeing what you come up with.

  7. Doughnuts and tiramisu, oh my! I've been off desserts for 18 days. Today's a tough one, so I'm going to imagine I'm eating a doughnut and some tiramisu. Yummm.
