A trip to the Library
This is the new part with it's automatic doors and outside book return and all the things new libraries have. Inside there is a little courtyard where the two buildings meet. One can go out there but I don't know if it is ever used or not.
The library is only a block behind my house. I go past "the monument" to get to it. Many southern towns have monuments to the confederate soldiers. I will have to check again to see who the other is to.
The library is across the street to the right and on the corner back toward the viewer. Across the street to the right is the history branch of the library with history of the city, the state, archives, etc. It is also in one of the old, big houses, built by a family who is no longer here. The house wasn't large enough for the wife and another house was built but I don't know where.
I want to go spend some time in the archives there but somehow I haven't done it yet. Maybe that will be a Thursday activity for me. I have never had, except for the few times I was working, a specific day to go anywhere. I think the structure is interesting especially since if it gets to be onerous I can just change it.
When I got home, Dean was repairing the dishwasher, which has been making a horrible noise for several weeks. He found a piece of plastic in the drain pump impeller. I am glad that he is so handy, but I need three or four of him to get all the things done that need to be done around here. The fence is at a standstill but I hope that it will move forward toward completion soon.
Danny Gregory's challenge on his everyday drawing matters blog was to draw an animal. I drew my favorite felon, this crow, from a photo I made in NC. He looks like he belongs on the Post Office wall with the 10 most wanted.
