We had four days of heavy rains, last weekend and beginning of this week … then two days of fair weather and now back to rain again. It’s a miserable morning, weather-wise. Yesterday was quite lovely, though … Gerry had a wake to tend to [again], and I took a rather long walk in the downtown area and took some photos.
The day before yesterday, one of the historic, red brick buildings, burned. It burned so badly they had to tear it down right away. Very sad … some young punks [allegedly] set it on fire. It was from 1882 … used to be an old theatre. Now it will be another parking lot, I guess. It’s all gone now, but it was about the same style building as the ones you see here.
The police have three people in custody.
I just happened to walk by this place, because I had a special building in mind for my photo excursion. In some earlier post, I mentioned an old, former, church, that will be torn down if they can’t sell it.
Now that I got there, and had a closer look at it, I realized what a huge building it is! It was difficult to get the whole thing in one frame. The sunlight was also very bright, but at least I have it, in case they decide to go ahead and rip it down.
Before I even started my wanderings, I met these guys and I just can’t finish this post without putting them in because I love them. There were actually three of them out … with noses in the same direction, but one rushed back down in its hole while I went to grab my camera.
