Post Fourth

This was the biggest flag on display on the Fourth of July in downtown Northampton.

My neighbor's porch.

Patriotic dog outside the vets.

It couldn't be the Fourth without some kind of demonstration.

The most colorful shop to open on Main Street in years.

For Lease - the property, not the art.

Hey Tom: Are the folks that own Shop Therapy in Noho also own the same-named store in P-Town? (Or at least it used to be in P-Town; haven't visited for a few years ...)

I don't know, but it may well be.

I'm not surprised the Paradise had the biggest flag. I was there with my wife and two sons for the Ghana/U.S. World Cup soccer match. The owner had flags for everyone and the food was half price on that saturday. Burgers there are excellent as well.
