Reality Check

By on 22 May, 2017 in Historic Midtown, Karren Pell with 2 Comments

With “alternate facts,” reality shows, and false news, the slang term, “Is that for real?” is, well, for real. But among the things in my life that are real, one is life in a historic neighborhood. Folks, it gets and stays real here. Our homes are not “like” Victorian Townhouses and 1920 bungalows; they are […]

One of the many things I love about living in one of Montgomery’s historic neighborhoods is that we find ways to help others. Sandra Nickel in Cloverdale collects coats and blankets to help the homeless in Montgomery during the winter. A portion of the Christmas fundraising in Capitol Heights is donated to the Brantwood Children’s […]

My friend and neighbor Pamela Gay lives across the street from me. We talk about cats, exchange neighborhood news, and we used to commiserate about students before I retired. But I have just recently learned something about her: She’s an artist and a poet! Pamela Gay has published a book of poetry illustrated by prints […]

Ah. The light is changing. Mornings and some evenings are cooler. It’s fall in Capitol Heights, and we love it! However, my garden is not cooperating. No spider lilies. No sunflowers.
