Recently Mother Goose and her husband went for a long drive in the Goosemobile — just to get a fresh perspective on our Christmas preparations and take a break from the whirlwind of shopping. We landed in the quaint little town of Lyons. Of course, Mother Goose was a little hesitant to get out of the car in a town nearly named after a ferocious carnivore (goosenivore?), but I took a deep breath and moved my rubbery feet as quickly as I could into a surprising little place called Stella’s.
I like their Christmas decorations almost as much as I like their attitude that life is supposed to be fun. They have year round indoor batting cages for all those guys and gals who want to practice their swings and improve their baseball skills! They have a dance studio for those people who are light on their feet and can feel the rhythm. Obviously, that would NOT be necessary for Mother Goose…
They have a great hotdog stand! They have pinball machines in their arcade area! They have a sweet little shop to buy baseball bats, balls, mitts and other supplies.
It’s just so charming I have to share.
It’s an unusual place to be sure, but the people at Stella’s were all “little town friendly”. Mother Goose has discovered that The Village of Lyons has a very interesting history, and some mysteries to solve… But that’s a story for another day.
Before you close your eyes tonight, please say a prayer for the kids and families of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Ask God to please stop the madness and show us how to care for one another.
Love, Mother Goose
