Fis and Chips, and other sights


This place is on my list. I'll let you know how it fares. I'm optimistic - they've been in business for 43 years - but is it a red flag that they don't know what a fish looks like? This picture is too small for you to see very well, but the cartoon creature looks more like a duck than a fish.

Today, while Robin worked on her book deadline, I hiked back into Uxbridge to grab some more missing items: towels, cups, cutting board, bathmat, 4-port USB hub, USB printer cable. The usual stuff.

Another shot of the guys I mentioned in an earlier posting.

Also in an earlier post, I mentioned that no one was dancing to the band. These two guys were dancing, but this was before the band started playing.

Just to belabor the point, this is the non-dancing audience after the band started playing. Man, I miss the Beatles.

Here are some other places in Uxbridge I hope to check out soon. All of them are within a block of the Uxbridge town center.




Hmmm. Maybe I'll just ask about this one.

There's something for everyone, from Spongebob to old St. Andrews church. St. Andrews was built in 1865 (brand spanking new by English standards) and cost 12,000 pounds. The spire is 180 feet tall.

Spongebob (1997) is a sea sponge, but he resembles a kitchen sponge. He's a fry cook at the Krusty Krab restaurant, at which he has won employee of the month many times. He attends Mrs. Puff's Boating School, analogous to a driving school, but cannot pass the boating test. SpongeBob lives with his pet snail Gary in a large "pineapple-house" on 124 Conch Street in Bikini Bottom, which is located beneath the tropical isle of Bikini Atoll. His neighbors are Squidward, who is a squid, and SpongeBob's co-worker at the Krusty Krab, and Patrick, a star fish and SpongeBob's best friend.
