~Out with the Old~
It makes me wonder, what downtown looked like back in the day. Fresh new buildings, booming businesses, people bustling around the railway. A town full of hope and promises. 3 or 4 square blocks is all they began with. The faded signs are all that's left of someone's hopes for a better life. It's what's left of their dreams of having their own piece of the business world. A paper company, a hardware store, a car lot, a produce company, a grainery, a seed store, or a welding business.
Vacant and left to be torn down. In the last year I have seen three of these beautiful lots grounded and whisked away to make room for.........
~In with the New~
Can you believe this? A blue eyesore of a car lot. It's so convenient you know. You can sell your car, buy a new one and get a tattoo and belly button ring all in the same afternoon. I believe that most of the residents of my town cheered the day this went in.
I am pretty sure I was born in the wrong era.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Memorial Day.
