1144 . . . what’s this crabby thing?
It’s my princess . . .
called either Barefoot Princess or Welcome to Patchogue. Note . . . that “patchogue” is a two syllable word. Twelve years ago, while going to that town to see a man about a boat, I made the error of asking if I was in “pa CHO gee” rhymes with “patchouli,” sort of.
All fotos taken from my KVK offices this morning.
Afterthought: Do you suppose Patchogue is unilaterally annexing NYC’s sixth boro?
