Steady rain on Thursday night forced the blog to stay inside and watch the Phillies beat the Reds. One highlight was Chase Utley's inside the park home run! So today's photo is one that Jon took on our June 15 walk in the Strawberry Lane area. Revisiting this walk reminded Susan to check to see if the house for sale on Cold Springs Road (the one with the koi pond) had cut its asking price by, say, several hundred thousand dollars. A quick check on Zillow showed that her house is holding steady at 789,900, but also revealed the shocking news that the house next door is now also on the market (895,000).
