In Which Hitty Visits a Thrift Store

Recently, while I was out and about with my adopted human, Shirley, we stopped at one of our favorite thrift shops, the Hope Chest Resale Store for Hope Hospice in North Ft Myers.  The Hope Hospice organization provides specialized care to people with challenging and life changing illnesses.  We are glad to support this needed service.

Furniture and Household
There are many, many thrift shops in the Ft Myers area but the Hope Chest stands out for it's uniqueness.  In addition to a room just for books and a room just for holiday items, there is a sewing and craft room.  It is a real treasure trove.

It's always Christmas at the Hope Chest

Labor Day Flag Raising Ceremony


Our New Flag

Raising the Flag
My little corner of the neighborhood got a new flag.  The residents of my building held a Flag Raising Ceremony to celebrate Labor Day.

After the Flag was raised, we sung "You're a Grand Old Flag" which was written in 1906 by George M Cohen for the stage musical, George Washington.  The spirited marching song holds the distinction of being the first song from a musical to sell a million copies of sheet music.

After the flag raising, we shared food on the patio.  Happy Labor Day America!
