Well, Wouldn't You Know It?
I opened my newspaper this sweet cool morning to find the picture above on the front page. That's Ms. Lloyd's daughter, right there, working on the train depot. And there was a nice article about the whole restoration.
I went to the paper online and found more pictures and you can find those here.
If you have the slightest interest.
It was just funny that I wrote THREE blog posts yesterday in which the train depot was mentioned and even pictured in two and then this.
Well, life is funny.
What's not funny is how my refrigerator and increasingly, my entire kitchen smell.
When I bought shrimp last Saturday for Sunday's birthday feast, I put the shrimp, wrapped in TWO strong plastic bags directly on a shelf in the refrigerator instead of setting them in a bowl the way I usually do.
Bad, bad mistake.
I may have to replace the refrigerator.
But first I have to clean the whole damn thing and I have a feeling that there's going to be a lot of food taken to the chicken coop this morning because the shrimp smell seems to have permeated almost everything.
And Owen's coming in an hour and a half and so I better get busy because honestly, it's too nasty to live with. As in- if you walked into a seafood market and it smelled like my kitchen does you'd walk out as quickly as you could and go buy pork chops.
As in- if my dogs could get in the refrigerator and roll in it, they would.
As in- there ain't enough baking soda in the world to get rid of this smell.
As in- okay. You get it.
On the big scale of life's problems this is a small one and I know that and I'm grateful.
Not like I'm trying to rebuild a train depot here.
I just need to de-gagify the kitchen.
