    Cher, I am blown away!! You have such a lovely voice, and it was a pleasure to listen to your description of this old mill building! It is amazing how beautiful and so well-built this old building is. I also appreciate old architecture – built for whatever reason – and marvel at the talent and vision it took to bring to the world the results for generations to enjoy and find useful. Love the changes to your blog. As you supposed, I haven’t peeked in for a while. I hope your Christmas visit with family and friends in Ontario went well and was as enjoyable as you had hoped! Fondly, Carol

      Oh my dear Carol! It is so incredibly lovely to see you! Ah, talk about kind words! My goodness! Thank you so much! My dear friend Joseph over at “Seeing the Whisper” https://seeingthewhisper.wordpress.com/ has so kindly commented that I should create a demo tape to send to a radio station. I would love to do that, to be honest. I’ve done some freelancing voice overs. But I digress. Yes, aren’t they just amazing structures? Me too, Carol. And what were they thinking at the time; did they like their new Canadian home? What textiles did they make? I think the ‘etc.’ goes on and on, doesn’t it? Well yes, but I sure am happy to see you! A great visit, thanks! Again, it is so lovely to see you and I sure did miss your visits so please stop by any time when you have a moment!! Big hugs my dear, Cher xo

    Lots of old mills here in Maine too, although several have been torn down. Fortunately, others have been renovated and updated for new businesses and housing. The beauty of the old architecture shines brightly over any modern-day replacements. Thanks for sharing, Cher!

      It sounds so similar to my home town, Bette! It is lovely when they maintain the structures and use them for other businesses, isn’t it? Ah, I agree completely! Another era and they really do shine, don’t they? Thank YOU, dear Bette! Cher xo
