Friday, the beginning of the weekend

Waiting for Memorial Day weekend to begin


Construction of sidewalks ramps that conform to the American Disability Act continue on State Street.  A nice and very expensive gesture but since wheelchair people use the street it is a waste of money.  They use the street because the sidewalks have telephone poles, and street signs buried in them reducing the width of the sidewalk to, in some places, only about 14 inches, not wide enough for a wheelchair or electric scooter.

I see Walmart is selling chairs that fit their customer base.

and a look at the Chris Mills building.  Now since the plywood have faded it almost blends in to give a historical look to the building.

1948 ad in Salisbury Md. and you could call them collect. oh how the times have changed.  Now days unless a young person has been to jail he or she doesn't know what a collect call is.

Rainy Saturday

Rainy day good excuse to not do yard work.  I rode by the Center (mall) and it looked liked everyone in Salisbury was there,  Those who were not were at Wal-Mart.

 I picked a number of these old 10 inch 78RPM records up at the Salvation Army in Salisbury
 They were from the mid 1920s to early 1930s interesting - something else to stumble over in the house.
Cost me ten cents a piece

The Artisan Fair just took up one side of the street last week.  I thought it was a good idea as some of the downtown merchants had complained about having the street closed for it. 

 1948 night fishing in Hawaii

I found this dead bat laying in my yard.  I don't know if the cats killed it or it just died. Anyway it was scooped up in the shovel and tossed in the trash.
