For Thursday Doors this week, I have a door from Buffalo, NY. This was taken last February and the handle kept coming off the door. You could maneuver it back on, but I think you had to have someone on the outside help. It was pretty funny and I guess it had been broke for a while.
In the door photo is Dawn, an old friend that I was thankful to see while in Buffalo that month. And so as October winds down, I wanted to share a throwback photo of our Halloween costumes back in 1987. Dawn and I were a pair of dice. This is the same friend that while with our boyfriends, in 1987, we used to insert “who” for “what” in U2’s song “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For…” (ha…)
We were in Buffalo, NY for a funeral the last night of our trip everyone was at this local bar, because Buffalo has lots of small corner bars – part of the culture in some parts. So we had to stop by – to see family and friends. I am so glad we did stop by for a little while – even though there was grief heaviness. I also took this next photo of a few folks doing shots of whiskey in honor/remembrance of the deceased.
I had my camera out for something else and took this real quick like. So glad to have captured this moment.
I know everyone has their own opinion about alcohol, especially with its misuse and abuse, but if ever there was a good reason to do a community shot — an honorary toast to the deceased is one of them. (And maybe for a filovirus -kidding – remember Joe’s Shoes?)
Also, side note – did you know that I have about five episodes of the Sopranos waiting for me to finish? I am slowly pacing myself and once I finish a certain goal – I will finish off the series. I know some folks would not be able to wait, but it is a little reward for me. This next photo is from the last episode I watched and it shows that they also had the tradition of a community remembrance shot.
To close this Throwback Thursday Door post, I want to add in Day #2 of Karen’s quote challenge.
My quote is from John Roberts, chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court – who also happens to be from Buffalo, NY. Roberts is an amazing man – brilliant – balanced – polished – and kind. (And did I mention he was from Buffalo?)
My nominees for today:
Robbie of Robbie’s Inspirations
Tish Farrell the Writer on the Edge
Aletta from Now at Home
Simply post a favorite quote every day for three days, and then invite other bloggers do it – you can invite one, three, six, or everyone… 🙂 You can can post anytime you like – even next year – and you can also say, “No thanks.”

One last photo – M (in the middle) is telling two cousins to be aware of the broken doorknob. LOL
