Grandma Moses Mural

On the way up to Vermont today I went through Hoosick Falls, NY and saw this mural of a Grandma Moses painting, "Wagon Repair Shop". Technically, not in New England but New Englandish. I just love Grandma Moses' paintings and her grandson, Will Moses' paintings. In fact,I have a Serigraph of a Will Moses painting.

Colebrook, CT - The Colebrook General Store is finally open after a long closure.

Addison Todd is the new owner, he is a chef and will be concentrating on making sandwiches and baked goods. I saw that their are breakfast sandwiches on the menu. In addition, on Friday's he will be making pizzas. But, at this time, you need to call early in the week and order what kind of pizza you would like and then call on Friday and tell him when you would like to pick up your pizza. Here Addision is getting ready to make some fresh Butternut Squash Soup.

People familar with the Colebrook Store know of the big eclairs. Addison will continue with that tradition. In addition, he also makes a smaller version for people with a smaller appitite. At the time I stopped by the large ones were all sold out and a few small ones were all that were left.

After a good sales day, this is all that was left in the bakery case.

A sitting area in the front of the store, in addition, there are other eating areas in the store.
