Yes, they tore down another building this week-this time a nice brick 2-flat, but no photos this time- although I suspected it was coming when I saw "No Tresspassing" signs all over the property and the windows boarded up. Someone cashed out big time on that building. It was a double lot- the kind that makes developers mouth's water around here.
But not to be all bad news. I broke down and finally bought a digital camera (it's charging now).
I am never the first one to buy new technology -that's for sure. I have a basic cell phone that I can go days on end without turning on, just got a DVD player at x-mas, and we are waiting for the prices of flat screen TVs to drop more before considering.
I think I have a little touch of luddite in me, although I work on a computer literally all day long and if our systems go down at work, I feel like I can't do a thing. And then I come home and get back on the computer like 3 times or more. We do have cable internet too- no can do dial up.
That Antiques Show I mentioned Sunday was interesting. I was hoping to see some Arts and Crafts furniture, but there was none. I believe true antiques are 100+ years old so that would eliminate some of Stickley and his ilk (borderline I think). The "cheap" stuff there was $2000.00- just a wee bit out of my price range. Mainly I saw stuff like what you see on Antiques Road Show. The kind of stuff that makes the appraisers stop breathing and their hearts skip a beat.
I now understand that feeling after standing next to a $20,000.00 clock. It made me nervous actually. Pictures soon woohoo.
