Borden Spaces and Places,  Potpourri,  Second Street Happenings,  Victoriana

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas


 The wind whipped the flags along the route 195 overpass this morning as Fall River temperatures plunged.  With lows expected tomorrow of 8- 14 degrees and snow on the way, guests at the Borden house hunkered down with extra blankets last night.

Decorating has begun in earnest at #92 in preparation for the open house on December 16th.  Tickets are available for the five house, five historic property tour at New Boston Bakery on New Boston Road, which was also decorated today in fine style with a Victorian theme.  The apple turnovers are worth the trip. Appreciative customers sat around the large tree in the window drinking just about anything hot in a cup.  Old Yankees grumbled on street corners and muttered ominously about the Farmer’s Almanac predictions for a snowy winter 2007-8  – just like the ones they used to know. . . .
