Monday 5 January 2009

This is part of one of the buildings in our town square which line the four sides of the road around the courthouse. I have posted a pic of it before but have been wanting to take more of all the buildings for ages because they are really starting to get shabby at the edges. When I post a few more pics you will see what I mean, loose bricks at the tops etc. They need serious maintenance and just about all the stores on the ground floor are closed and empty. The supermarkets etc. are all spread far and wide over a square mile. This one dates from the late 1800s and the brickwork was also what fascinated me, the designs they made out of the bricks are gorgeous.

Well not much happening today, I had no help with the horses so did both feeds and only found about this evening just before it got dark, so had 11 horses to bring in and feed and it was already dark. Thank heavens it wasn't too cold, I think we stuck at about freezing and just above all day but it was sunny which is why I put the horses out.
I am going to get a reasonably early night so hope everyone is having a good week so far, thanks for the visits and comments. ((((Hugs)))))

Hi Lori. Is that the building on the north side of the square on the corner? It looks like the old Val's store. I'll be glad when the weather is better so we can get out and take a lot of pics!
