Moon ~ The Station ~ Dude ~ Bucket List ~ Dave ~ Sunset ~ Tulips In Spring


Good 43º sunny morning.



A little restaurant in Rogue River, The Station, closed. The building was 100 years old. It had great sandwiches and soup and you could dine outdoors in the warm weather. The restaurant owners were renters in the building and the building owners wouldn't do any maintenance, which got so expensive, the restaurant closed, after 20 years!


On Saturday the fire department used it as a teaching aid in fighting fires and it was basically burned inside.

Then Sunday it was burned to the ground.


Still smoldering...


If I put Dude in the back of my truck and go into a business or post office or anything, he jumps to the front seat. So, I parked where he could see me taking pictures across the street and opened the back window for him. He was happy and stayed put!!!

GOOD morning. If only I could learn to love escargot, we would never starve. Not that it looks like that is a possibility anywho):-

How sad to see a beloved building burned. May its ashes end up feeding a garden.

I'm not anti- cosmetic surgery - but when the results are plastic- looking- that isn't fine artistry. It doesn't matter how much procedures total in cost- it simply isn't beautiful to look like a body that walked off the embalmers table.

Oregon Sue said...

Yes L, you are right about cosmetic surgery. I don't understand that beautiful people have this done and then look like hell!!! Even Kenny Rogers couldn't win a Kenny Rogers look-alike contest now!!! xo
