Wow, Carl, Terrell, Dave, Bill, Pete, Ted, and Mike, thanks for your nice posts.

An old friend has posted his displeasure with the patent medicine units, he thinks they are
too low. I have to agree with him but since the only view into he store is from this end,
anything higher would block off the whole thing and I HAD to have something.

After thinking about it I realized how wonderful it was of Mr.Alessi to have that
stuff down low so us OLD guys can browse through it to find a cure for all our aches
and pains.

What say ye?

Bob

I forgot to mention, the MOXIE sign represents those that were painted right over the
clapboards or bricks. I made a decal stretched slightly top to bottom to allow for it getting
down in the underside of each board. The rest of the signs are the newer ones printed on metal
sheets and attached to the building.

Bob,
Where is the Moxie sign? My wife said I can look right at something and not see it...maybe she's right!

Bryan, Greg, and Dave, thanks for your comments.

Dave, tell your wife that your vision is OK, it's that nutty Bob that thought he posted these three photos.







I still have work to do both inside and outside but it is getting along.

Bob

Bob,

I think you had many of us wondering. The problem is--in my case at least-- I wasn't sure the problem wasn't me.

And if you are nutty, then you are a Brazil nut or Macadamia nut, which my wife tells me (when asked, and with a quizzical look) are among the elite of nuts.

Mike

An evocative structure, to be sure! I wonder what that place smelled like when you opened the door? Today's pharmacies don't smell like much.

This establishment has Character. Today's Big Box cookie cutter places don't. They're just ways to separate you from your discretionary income while you wait for what you really need. That's the difference! [/rant]

Great job, Bob! That excellent (YMMV) Moxie Nerve Food is still available in northern New England and a few other places, and I like it. Have two cases in the pantry!

As to the "not seeing" stuff, well... one of my pastor friends was not amused after I had mentioned that I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter these days... and then said "Yeah, every time I go into a room I have to stop and think 'what am I here after??'"

Great building!

Terrell, Mike, Ted, Dave, Galen, and Pete, thanks for your nice comments, I appreciate every one.

Galen, I never thought about it but now that you mentioned it I too wonder what it smelled
like in there. Maybe someone should come up with a set of odors for all sorts of old buildings.

I'm making a plumbing vent for the roof and a small roof access hatch. I have toyed with
the idea of adding a small billboard. I have also been painting a cat that might like to
stretch in a window, not sure how that will turn out.

Other than that I will get a little grunge on the whole place and get outside for a few
photos in natural light. Should be a few days work yet.

Cheers,

Bob

The weather has not cooperated so there will be no natural light photos today. I still have to
get a light coat of grime on it anyway.

I did throw together a small billboard but I'm not sure I'm happy with it, therefor it
is removable and the light wires have a disconnect installed.

Any thoughts on it???

Bob
