Do you love the Manatawny?
Sometimes I love it, and other times I feel kind of blase’ about it. I mean, when I was cleaning it, I felt a type of ownership about it. When I worried about taking out the damn in Pottstown I felt worried about it. When I walk through Memorial Park I feel proud of it, but when I’m waiting to cross it at any of it’s corresponding bridge intersections I just feel like it’s something akin to a storm drain.
How do you feel about it?
Last night after heading up to the new shops in Bally to see what their annual “board bid” was about. We took a turn and headed over Manatawny Road to Union Jack’s. I’d recommend the place- they have burgers and wraps and hot wings!
But I have to tell you I was struck as usual by the campy, and I think I mean to use that word, the campy style of the houses that back up to the creek. It makes me think back to a time when homes would have been built there to take advantage of the water. I just can’t imagine picking up my family from their city lodging and moving them out to a house along a creek!
Times have obviously changed.
Well? What do you think of the Manatawny?
PS, I know no one is going to answer me! I know you are going to read my blog and you are going to move along- and I think that is a very smart thing to do! Just remember this is a real person, ( me) writing these posts. I’m not telling you to go to Union Jack’s because someone paid me. I’m telling you because I like drinking their “Squirrel Monkey” cocktail and I like their hot wings!
