We were in T-town this weekend for the newest grandbaby's christening (welcome, Metyl!) and I did a double take as we drove past this place on the way to a relative's home. MCM, but with reference to the earlier Streamline Moderne style. Probably stucco over concrete block. A family member tells me that it was originally built for a college professor and sports terrazo flooring throughout. It comes up for sale regularly, then doesn't sell, so is leased out again for the school year. It's occupied now so I didn't get too close. Nifty place.
And just because I thought you would enjoy it, something I came across on a trip to the post office a few weeks ago . . .
It's not every day that we in small-town Alabama see school buses in anything but an upright position. And what are those bins across the parking lot?
Why, those are bins for plastics, glass, etc., because . . .
This is the town recycling center. If only all thugs and vandals could be this environmentally conscious.
And here are a few things I love. Just because.
My Sunbeam toaster, a wedding gift to Mom and Dad in 1960. Makes the best damn toast in three counties:
An awesome Chris Craft runabout, ca. 1958. It was for sale at a nearby dealer last summer:
My dad's 1949 Ryan Navion. 'nuff said:
Oh, the Navion is for sale. Let me know if you're interested.
