Sweet Dreams Are Made of This


The Lantern 
Packer Row, Jim Thorpe, PA 

I am a daydreamer...
and there is something about
small villages and old towns
that ignite those dreams.


Windows in a Row 
Jim Thorpe, PA 

I daydream of living
in such a place,
but could I?
A place where everyone knows my name.


The Village Below 
Jim Thorpe, PA 

There is some comfort in that,
but many times I prefer to be in my little world:
an unknown observer.

Yes, I Could Fix This Up...Or Not 
Jim Thorpe, PA 

I think I should let the mystery
of small towns stir in my imagination
and enjoy the anonymity of suburbia.

After all, why mess with a good dream?

Putting the FEST in OKTOBERFEST

You haven't been to an Oktoberfest
until you have been to one with
Alex Meixner
because Alex puts the FEST
in Oktoberfest.


Alex welcomes the Stoudt's Crowd  
Adamstown, PA 

While you polka,
guzzle your beer and
devour your brats,
Alex and his band
work tirelessly to keep the party going.


Alex rockin' the accordion.  

Alex is a gifted and trained musician,
highly skilled at playing multiple instruments -
sometimes at the same time.
Trumpet
Drums
Piano
Flugelhorn
Baritone Horn
Vocals
He rocks the humble Accordion.


Alex on trumpet. 

Alex makes the accordion look cool.
Who would have thought that was possible?


Follow the Tuba led by Ed Stoudt of Stoudt's Brewery 

Jazz
Classical
Pop
Polka
Rock
Folk
mix in to his performance,
because after a few beers
everything sounds better as a Polka, right?


German Cousins: The Baker and The Engineer; The Engineer's Wife (Me), The Baker's Wife 
at Stoudt's Brewery Oktoberfest, Adamstown, PA

Keep Calm 
and 
Polka On 
with 
Alex 

You'll be glad you did.

Prost!

So which would you choose?

We happily discovered Hampton,
even though we had to wait for an accident to clear
by the tunnel.
It was worth the wait.

Fort Monroe, VA 

If I lived in Hampton
I would spend a lot of time at Fort Monroe.
I loved the place.
There is more in Hampton to see,
but we only allowed one day
and spent most of it engaged at the Fort.

The Fort Monroe Authority
has been transitioning Ft. Monroe
from a military base
to a public economically-viable community
since 2011.
