Improvements?

  



This old gas station has been derelict for at least 15 years (how long I've lived here.)

Last week I drove by to have this scene. Is it being upgraded? I don't think they'd go through all this trouble if it was to be demolished.  So I'm curious what will happen.

And next door was an ancient looking store, also kind of forgotten. It's one redeeming characteristic was two piles of colorful round ceramic jars on each side of the doorway. I saw it last week, without any doors or a back wall, then they nailed plywood all across the face of it. I will go back and take some photos of the mural that's being painted on it!

Update will be on When I was 69 blog. (coming Mon. June 13)

  1. It was good to get a photo while you could. I wonder what it will look like in the near future.

    1. It's getting attention finally...more times to drive by and irritate the cars behind me as I take a snapshot through the window!

  2. I have seen old gas stations turned into little cafes. Looking forward to see the mural. Take care, enjoy your day and happy weekend!

    1. There's one here that is a cute Thai restaurant. Hope it's opened again...it just did take out for a while during pandemic.

I give up! Half the comments never were sent to my email, when I was trying to moderate them. So I apologize. And I'll just have to remove the silly spammers that keep showing up.
