A visitor’s view of Webster

27 Feb

It’s the simple, unexpected moments in life that remind us that we live in a great town.

Jenny Flanery, from Michigan, discovers Toy Go ‘Round

The other day when I was visiting with Bonnie Reynolds at Toy*Go*Round, a customer entered the shop.  I struck up a conversation with her (because that’s the kind of thing I do) and was intrigued to find out that she was from out of town — specifically, the Detroit area. Naturally, I wondered what brought her into this little shop. Her answer warmed my heart.

Her name was Jenny Flanery, and her husband is a union representative whose job takes him all over the northeast states.  Jenny explained that she travels with him some of the time, but always tags along when he comes to this area.

“I love Webster,” she said. She especially likes all of the small shops in town, she added.  On that day, as she was driving down Ridge Road, she noticed Toy*Go*Round and thought, “I haven’t been there yet.”  So she stopped. And she shopped.

Sometimes it’s nice to see our hometown through someone else’s eyes to remember how special it really is.
