(1) thing: do you have a pet?

Ummmm

I sadly don’t have any pets. (I was a serial goldfish killer in my youth T^T ) 

I decided to save an autumn leaf before the first Winter snow due tonight in the Hudson River Valley..  The edges are slowly dying but the colors are still holding on.. A lot like this November day.

  • on cleanup duty, instead of actually sweeping in the lodge race just teaches his cabin how to tap dance with a broom for some reason. race is the king of upstate new york
  • the art shop is on stilts so below it there are a bunch of canoes and life jackets and stuff but there are also hammocks right at the edge of the lake
  • jack sleeps there. he literally has not slept in his own bed once
  • on a completely unrelated note,
  • crutchie sometimes disappears at night and nobody knows where he goes. what a mystery. someone once said he goes down to the art shop but nobody can really prove that right? nah.
  • one time race is sitting on the porch where the camp store is and playing guitar like an asshole
  • and he overhears davey yelling at les because he’s literally 30 dollars in debt to the store and their parents are gonna have to pay when they get there
  • race: *strums guitar softly* when les’s parents disowned him~
  • and everyone mcfreakin loses it

The Genesee Valley Trust Company building is now known as the Times Square Building, and is one of the most distinctive structures in Rochester, New York–largely because of the massive wings mounted on top.

The Times Square Building is an Art Deco skyscraper designed by Ralph Thomas Walker of the firm Voorhees, Gmelin, and Walker located in Rochester, New York. At 260 feet (79 m), it is the eighth tallest building in Rochester, with 14 floors. The former Genesee Valley Trust Building is a streamlined twelve-story building supporting four aluminum wings 42 feet (13 m) high, known as the “Wings of Progress”, each weighing 12,000 pounds (5,400 kg). These structures are among the most distinctive features of the Rochester skyline.[1]  The cornerstone of this bank was laid on October 29, 1929, “Black Tuesday” of the 1929 stock market crash(wikipedia)

This is another early scan of a postcard from a second-hand store in Oneonta NY.  It was postmarked in 1933.  The message on the other side reads:  “Listen over the Radio very carefully.  You may hear us broadcasting from W.H.A.M. - Edna"  It was sent to the Stoddarts in Delhi NY.
