I had wondered whether or not to post a third part to my two previous posts. I am not sure the last few pictures I have will be of any general interest. However, since I said there would be a third part, I have decided to proceed as planned.

I have spent the day confined to my desk. Why? So that I can keep an eye on Noodle, Linda's rescue pup...

She was spayed yesterday and also had both deformed dewclaws, plus five milkteeth removed at the same time. We did not want to risk any rough-and-tumble playing with the other dogs for a day or so. She has perked up remarkably well this evening, after having spent much of the day sleeping on the couch. This gave me the opportunity to catch up on reading blogs, but I suspect that she'll be back to normal (boisterous) from tomorrow onwards.
Why am I sharing all of this irrelevant detail? Well, to put it simply, I appear to have the time right now to prepare the final Philadelphia post. I am whispering, in case Noodle gets wind of it and decides to sabotage my attempt.
|These weathered old steps were spotted down one of the little side streets in the old part of the town.|
|There were arty objects displayed in the most unlikely places. This crafty owl was dangling rather precariously from an old airvent on the gable of this building.|
|This attractive building with "broekie-lace" is the village "Supermarket" We unfortunately did not go in to "check it out"|
|On our way home we drove through the new suburban development of the little town. This pavement garden was planted up very nicely with indigenous shrubs and buzzing with bees.|
|Farewell, Philadelphia. We really did enjoy our visit!|
