  1. Yea! Summer is here!

    Now, if the Northfield Senior Citizens could get a liquor license and an outdoor permit, we could be having beer and popcorn in Bridge Square. 😎

    Speaking of BEER in Bridge Square, when is the Taste of Northfield scheduled for? First Thursday in June?

  2. You have got to love Northfield: a town where the wittiest, most cynical, most satirical, most outrageous, hardworking playwright says he ” love, love, LOVES the popcorn wagon”!
    Aren’t people most various and strange?

    Wait a minute … I just got worried about that comment; Brendon, were you being sarcastic? Again?

  3. Kiffi,

    First, thank you for the compliments.

    Second, no sarcasm in my praise for the popcorn wagon. It’s pleasurable to look at, pleasant to eat of, and pleasing to interact with.

    You all do talk to the popcorn wagon, don’t you? I’m not the only one, right?

    Just kidding about that last sentence, but, yes, I do dearly love the wagon. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to volunteer there. What’s the minimum age requirement?

    I think I’ll try to work it into a play… how about this for a title: “Murder By Kernel”… yes? no?

  4. When I lived in New York and would return to visit family in Northfield, seeing the popcorn wagon always brought a smile to my face. My father volunteered there, and I once took a picture of him dispensing popcorn, amid smiling faces of recipients. My father died in 2002, before I moved here in 2004. The popcorn wagon brings back happy memories.
    And I love the name of popcorn in Spanish, palomitas de maíz, which means “little doves of corn.” íViva palomitas de maíz!

  5. I didn’t realize it but Northfield Construction Company (a client) stores the popcorn wagon over the winter. Ray Cox blogged about it a couple weeks ago:

    Today the Northfield Senior Citizen’s ‘popcorn crew’ came to our shop and collected the  popcorn wagon. The popcorn wagon is a nicely restored old wagon that needs to be kept out of the winter weather. Northfield Construction Company provided a secure, dry storage area for the wagon over the winter.
