A Lot of Love in a Latte Round
.
I like coffee, I like tea
I like java, and java it likes me
coffee and tea, java and me
cup o’ cuppa cuppa cuppa
.
I will bring you your good mornin coffee
could you smile, smile, smile
If not now then have a sip or two
and maybe in a while you can smile
.
I love you I love you
in the good mornin’ and in the night
Every day I wait with you wherever we are
I know it’s gonna be alright
.
Here’s your coffee, it may still be too hot,
it is freshly brewed
I’ll just pour myself a cup
and then I’m gonna crawl in with you

Broad Arrow Cannonball Round
.
The “Broad Arrow” mark on this 12-pound iron cannonball signified it as property of the British Board of Ordnance. British guns on land and aboard ships in Boston Harbor “kept an incessant fire” of iron shot and shells on the New England troops at the Battle of Bunker Hill. British Major General John Burgoyne, who witnessed the roar of the guns that day, described it as “one of the greatest scenes of war that can be conceived.”

Enter the Shuttle Tube Round
.
Your shuttle will be here shortly, Mr. Bond. A quick tube ride and you'll arrive at the international transport complex guarded by security forces at all entrances. There are several jet fueled vehicles that will be docked in various locations. If you can successfully bypass the x-ray scans, the random pat-down searches or the ban on bottled liquids larger than 3.4 ounces, you will be able to board your flight. Good luck.

Drain Pipe Construction Round

These drain pipe sections at the largest are about six feet in diameter, big enough to walk through; or, with the ladder, climb down. That's a lot of room for water, but I wouldn't want to be the guy to unclog it.

Stanley's Playing Round
.
On weekend evenings in Old City there's usually music in the air. In this moment Stanley Morgan was out playing his bongos and bringing a vibrant energy to the corner of 2nd and Chestnut. Known as Atakatune, Stanley was a musical veteran, a percussionist for 40 years with the Sun Ra Arkestra, a well known jazz and experimental music ensemble and pioneers of afrofuturism. On October 17, 2018, the Arkestra made the sad announcement that Stanley had "departed this planet." His rhythms still echo around the block, greeting passersby in the coming twilight.

Ring Bearer Round

A perfect circle has no beginning or end. The exchange of rings in a wedding ceremony symbolizes undying commitment and eternal love between two people. The ring bearer sometimes presents the rings on a laced white pillow adorned with flowers. Or maybe in a Round handcrafted jewelry box with a heart for a cap. Or occasionally buried deep in his pocket with chewing gum and lint. But regardless of the romance of the delivery, the circle is sealed at "with this ring..."

Dragonfly in My Dish Round
.
You can complain about a fly in your soup, but a dragonfly in your dish is quite spectacular. This blue bomber apparently made an emergency medical landing at some point on Ed's window sill. Because while as beautiful as a piece of jewelry, it is – as they say in the Adirondacks – dead as a smelt.

October Bean Bucket Round

The fall bean known as an October Bean can be a rarity these days, but these heritage seeds are still around to be grown. Mom had them stashed in her freezer. They can be planted later in the season, and they will ripen between the end of summer and the first frost. That might be right about now!

Gem-Studded Puffball Round
.
Coated in spiny bumps and warts, this spiky little lollypop is the Lycoperdon perlatum, considered to be a good edible mushroom that you can batter in egg and breadcrumbs and fry like popcorn shrimp. Mostly known as the gem-studded puffball, some call them the warted puffball, or poor man's sweetbread, or the devil's snuff-box, or... wolf farts. Who's hungry for some deep-fried wolf farts? Anyone?

Ahhh, now the crisp, cool fall evenings are coming more frequently, and what a perfect time for a little gathering ‘round the fire pit? Stack the logs, strike a match, and maybe get the skewers for some hot dogs or marshmallows. Or just sit and stare into the smoky abyss of the Round.
