Hey Ben. Thanks for the comps. Except for being out of town and just getting back, I've been really busy lately working on a big project in the town where I live. There is an old pharmacy here built at the turn of the century, and until Hurricane Ivan, the original building was covered up with ribbed metal. Well, the metal blew off and revealed the original stonework, etc. underneath so the owners decided to restore it to it's original charm. Anyhow, I just finished doing all of the painting on the front and side just as it was in the 40's and 50's. The paintwork is really nothing fancy, actually nothing more fancy than basic billboard-style letters using the old layout and colors, but it does show the look that the pharmacy had in that period. I am happy to have something to do with any restoration of that kind, so it was a fun job for me. Now back to my coffee table book pursuits and more time here at TC.
