b is for bangor

Where I’ve spent the last two days.

Helping IFW organize their Heritage Room. I could bitch, moan, and rail about this. Partly I don’t mind in the least… good to go, good to network with a couple of people, good to help them begin to get things in control. Partly I just want to shake them all.

What is totally entertaining, though, is that they also occupy a former mental hospital. Lots of good history and pictures here. What’s with this? Putting state agencies in old mental hospitals???  They think we are crazy?  Or they make us crazy?

These are for Dianna. Send good thoughts to her about Hero.

I thought these might be interesting interpreted as fair isle…

The buildings here are oh so much more interesting than the ones where we are (or is it just because they are new to me?)

At least we know the darkest days are over… not totally dark at 5 pm anymore!

    Hey – very weird thing about state agencies in mental hospitals. I’m not sure if it’s great the state is reusing resources, or scary that they think they can…

    Thanks for the barn pics and link to Dianna. I am so sorry to hear about Hero – I hope he makes it out ok. I absolutely love her barn series, though! What a neat idea.

    Hope you are well, too. See you next week!?

    Thank you! Seeing your barn pics made me smile…. Hero will have surgery in a few hours now, and I thank you for your support and thoughts, and especially for making me smile this morning!

    Love the old buildings, and the barn in particular.
    My grandfather is up in Bangor. (In one of the cemeteries.)

    Good old Bangor. Never been there except in a Steven King book. That sure is a neat old barn, and it looks big enough to be redone as a house!

    I was noticing that the days are creeping a bit longer, too!
