My older daughter and her family have recently become alpaca farmers - how's that for a hoot!? So on the left is a picture of little Sophia with some of the little alpacas. And on the right is a picture of little Sophia with her hair cut!!! She started kindergarten this past week and reported to her mom when she got home after her first day ..."SCHOOL IS AWESOME!!!" And, yes, I used all caps cause when Sophia's happy and excited about something she's really excited and happy about it. :)
And they're refurbishing another building downtown. When we moved here so many of the old buildings had false fronts on them. I guess that was the style in what? the fifties or sixties? Anyway, over the last 5 or so years, a lot of those have been coming down and it sure is making Huntington a more attractive city. These next pictures are of what was one of three theaters in downtown Huntington (all of which closed back when the mall opened up with a multiplex type theater). One is back in business and is used for special concerts, the Marshall Artists Series, wedding receptions(!), etc. The other shows second run movies for a much lower price than the first run movies in the big theaters. And this third one has been the Joslyn School of Dance for several years now and I don't know what the plan is now that they are restoring the outside. I shall be watching for further developments.
And now that is really and truly it for today. Please be sure and visit the post below this one for a few more pictures from Huntington and my update on floods, fender benders, etc. :)
