Thanks guys, another no outside photography day again.

Greg and Dave Happy New Year to you and your wives too.

Pete, OK. will keep the cat.

Dave, With all the stuff going on over the holidays I have not given a thought to whatever my next project will be.

Carl, most importantly, if Mr. Alessi is happy with the build my intentions are all
met, I always hoped you would like it.

Bob

Dave, I changed my mind, I think I do have a new build in mind but it's not solid enough right
now to come right out with it. Have to mull it over a bit.

Thanks Dave.

Still no nice weather for some outdoors photography but I have been thinking about
what's next. You will note in the original photos of the drugstore it is against another
brick structure. I am thinking about making that second structure but have very little to
go on. It will have to be almost all made up and I don't even know what sort of business
will be in it but that's the direction I am going in right now.

Bob

Think well, Bob! How about a small pre-big box grocery?

I remember one from my misspent youth..., where Mrs. Tivnan would use that long grabber to get the box of Rice Krispies down from the top shelf. Thirteen-foot ceiling or thereabouts, one "big" aisle in the middle, interior similar to the drug store. Cat optional.

Looking forward to whatever you decide!

Pete, Good suggestion. I have a grocery store (Brommer's Grocery) on the layout now but a
second one would not be out of place. I remember exactly what you are describing, however, the
new structure has to be brick and at least 3 stories high and that does not fit what I think
of with the small corner grocery store, I'll have to think more about it but thanks, I still
think it's a good suggestion.

Bob

WOW!!!! Just got a small break in the weather. No nice sun to make realistic
shadows but still, I have not had a chance to get some shots in natural light. Had to jump up and run outside for a few minutes.

Nicely done, Bob! I do notice a distinct green tint to the background, which would indicate a delightfully Non-White winter for you. Nothing that has to be shoveled out!

Cool Building!!!

As to the grocery, you could make the Family apartment on the second floor and the MIL apartment on the third.... Lots of three-deckahs in the northeast!

Have a ball! We're gonna love whatever you do!

Bob, looks just like the thing that the doctor ordered.
Another beauty to stop and look at, as we stroll down memory lane.
Great job!

Bob,
The outdoor setting really shows the beauty of this build...the absence of shadows brings out all of the detail.
Super job!!

Bob,

Looks great. What a fine model!

The outdoor shots really show off the colors and architectural features.
