Gathering Mussels at the shore for free.   For some reason, in the 50's and 60's, Mussels weren't as popular as they are today and the jetties of Cape Cod would be covered with them, ready to slash your bare feet to shreds.  Now that they have become gourmet items, those rocks are picked clean.
 
Sort of like the story that the prisoners in Maine in the 1800's rioted because they got sick and tired of being served lobster almost every day....seems noone wanted the bottom feeders back then.

      I didn't know you could find it in the states unless of course you happened to poke your head through the back of wardrobe and be tempted by a witch.

                  Easily found in Bergen County, NJ; all the supermarkets carry it.

                    I found it at the Shoprite of Matawan. We are usually free of Delight in Hudson County. I can stock up this week...since I have the honor of babysitting bulldogs.

                    Thankfully dry cleaners are still here.

                        Since Halloween is approaching...

                        The Haunted Mansion of Long Branch.

                        Was it scary? I doubt it but yes (for both my Father & me)...and long. He pinned it all on me.

                        My Mother said ..."ya both gonna be scared" She was right.

                        It burned down many years ago...and I usually think about it during this time of the year.
                         
                        See...all fun & games until...if you dare.
