Live well and pray hard.

I promised more old pictures, here they are. These are from the Library's collection, in Ms. Sherry Johnston's care in our Genealogy Department. We have one of the best known and comprehensive collections in the State of Alabama, so if anyone needs to research ancestors in this area be sure to come to the Evergreen-Conecuh County Public Library.
The photo above is of gypsies stopping at Mineral Springs in Conecuh County. Not sure of the date on this one.
This next pic is of the Farnham building, circa 1884, the first Brick building in "New Evergreen".
This photo is of the Martin and Ray Theatre, probably 1950's ?
These old photos are so much fun to look at. Notice the City Cafe on the right, and I think a shoe store was to the left of the theatre.
And this is my book of the day. My favorite, an old Hamish Macbeth Mystery. One of the pleasures of post-menopause is you forget what you have read by the time you finish the book, so you can always go back and read them again! :)
This is whats left on the new book shelf today, most all the bestsellers are checked out.
I love snowmen.

Doesn't my little dachshund Wilma look sweet in her Sunday dress and Santa hat? And here's Dothan warming by the fireplace.
I had a little fright when I arrived for work at the Library this morning. Our ghost was acting up in the attic. When I stepped off the elevator upstairs where I work, I was walking across the room (in the dark) to get to the light switches and turn the lights on. I heard something in the attic that sounded like it was walking along right beside me, keeping up with me. Well, needless to say, I turned around and jumped right back in the elevator and went back downstairs! I got off and called my co-workers names and no-one answered! For a moment I thought I was in a horror movie. (Did I say I have a vivid imagination?) Finally, I found Sherry and she came back up and went through the attic with me, alas, we found nothing there... She thinks it may have been a squirrel or other critter, so now we have someone from the city coming to check it out. Did I also mention that its dark and rainy outside today?
Oh well, I think I'll settle down with a good mystery and keep one eye on the attic door for the rest of the day! Maybe I'll have lots of patrons to keep me company.
Hope your day goes well, remember, books are good friends to have around! Also, brave co-workers!
