Thursday’s Doors ~ “details,” 4

Image

Different roofing since original,

I am imagining and daydreaming.

Different grassy space overgrown

and covering instead of showing

stones or dirt path around barn.

The stone blocks and

wooden lathing look like the

original barn where  

the two double door sets,

as well as two single doors,

(other full length barn photo) 

look like they were made to serve 

utilitarian purpose in milling and

farming community located in

Delaware, Ohio. 

~ Stratford on the Whetstone ~

Thanks for sticking by me,

as I tried to march through the

dense grass where I feared ticks

or other bugs would burrow 

above my sock lines.

I could smell a marshy, loamy

peaty or earthy aroma, some mud

clumped onto the grid of the

soles of my tennis shoes.

This end of the barn especially

seemed to display its age, 

along with the owner’s

respect for its history.

Whitewashed barn siding

and newer styled green roof.

I liked green paint around 

windows and over boards.

Please check out a

wide collection of

Come on down here, y’all and visit

a fine and true piece of history!

Thursday’s Doors ~ Stratford on the Whetstone, part 1

Image

The doors are up high for unloading 

onto the farming wagons. This is  

part of a milling community.

There are a few too many pictures,

no need to respond on all, but it

will show you the historic

landmark sign, both ends

of the barn building.

Thanks for viewing

and here’s my 

favorite host,

who has many

links to a wide

array of Doors,

Have a wonderful, safe trip through

all doors around the community

of Thursday’s Doors.

Creative Foundations, Artist Danielle

Image

Danielle painted a beautiful bird

~ the Blue Crowned Crane ~

which was made into a card.

She showed me her design,

proudly telling me it was

hers, on sale for the 

Delaware Arts Festival,

along with many other

artworks on display!

We turned her notecard over,

looking at the picture of

herself. I read aloud

Danielle’s Art Statement:

“I like doing art because it lets

me express myself. I like 

painting, drawing, performing.

I like to talk with my friends

and family. My favorite thing 

to do is draw animals. 

Creative Foundations

makes me very happy.”

My friend, Jenny, who taught

reading to children with 

learning disabilities

bought some cards

and so did I. 

Danielle is good friends with Amber.

Amber painted my youngest 

daughter the beautiful bold, 

black, gray and white rose.

She had been so excited when

I “commissioned her!”

It is hanging in Felicia’s bedroom.

At times it is hung over her 

white painted brick fireplace.

I’m hoping that the rose 

painting will be on a 

link found below.

This is my photograph

of Danielle Gould 

taken 5/20/17.

Please keep this fine organization

or similar programs in mind

when contemplating Art

and supporting positive

places to express 

themselves

who may be

differently 

made.

The M & M girls + Hendrix

Image


After being such excellent 

blogging friends, your

reward is to see the M & M

girls with little brother,

toddler Hendrix!

All enjoyed soft serve

chocolate ice cream.

Our very favorite ice cream “palace”

is called Dairy Point, a family

run business where my 

personal favorite is a

scoop of hard butter pecan,

hot caramel, real whipped cream,

home toasted pecans and 

a cherry on top!

πŸ’

Please “dish!”

What is your favorite flavor?

Does anyone still order 

a banana split?

“Who’s the Boss?”

written with glee by 

Robin O. Cochran

Two grinning girls,

Two skeptical boys,

All in agreement, in unison,

Requesting Nana to 

“Please take our picture!”

The boys chose to pose with no 

prompting from the photographer.

They had some people smiling as

Nana explained, “Last week, other

little girls wore princess gowns 

and crowns, as we watched them get

their pictures taken after movie,

“Beauty and the Beast.”

The girl grandies (M & M’s)

had complained, “Why didn’t 

you tell us to dress up?!”

I pleaded “not guilty” and almost

became “unpopular,” but said,

“Next week, we’ll get a picture of

you kids with the Boss Baby.”

 πŸ˜€   πŸ’–  πŸ˜€

Norm, we were heading towards

the door, as we took this silly

and spontaneous picture.

We found a door, since

The Strand Theatre 

front door has been

perfectly captured

previously.
