It was almost as if we were in Times Square! It was a town with Square in it’s name-Kennett Square, PA., the mushroom capital of the world. On December 31, 2013, an 8 foot tall wire mushroom was lowered in the middle of town as the timer ticked down to January 1, 2014! This was the 1st annual dropping of the mushroom. The town had a band, food trucks and other entertainment for a few hours. Since it was cold, we went up around 11:15 and parked in a closed bank and walked up. It got really crowded and we saw a few people we knew, one lady twice (had seen her earlier in the grocery store).
There it was suspended up near the clock tower.
Here’s what it really looked like:
And the article about it!
It took a while to get out of the squeeze, but we came home and I was making pizza at 1:15 as my dough hadn’t risen earlier. We had it for lunch the next day.
I also made us a turkey dinner for New Years day. I had to work one day last week and it was a bit rough getting up early.
Brian probably has a job opportunity delivering newspaper up in Kennett! It’s every day of the week and in the middle of the night, but the pay isn’t bad. Crossing fingers he can handle it!
I go back to work tomorrow.
