I meant to bring my camera to work today in order to capture more of the beautiful homes in our Lowertown area but I forgot it. Between getting up late due in part to my being put to sleep yesterday and no doubt some of that happy juice still lingering in my system and having to locate my favorite coat (which was left in Joe's truck) I was quite rushed to get out of the house this morning.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, our town has had an Artist Relocation program in place for a number of years. It has proved to be very successful and the homes are just breathtaking.
Rumor has it the homeowner paid $40,000 for this giraffe.
The giraffe that appears to be eating from the balcony was the one she bought for 40k, not sure about the one grazing.
This is at the top of the house. I assume it was the original owner's name. Kinda cool huh?
Not the best picture of the "cow house" as it is called but I was in my vehicle when I took it. Paducah had a flood in 1937 which effected the downtown area. That was before the floodwall was built (and why the floodwall was built!). The story is that during the flood a cow ended up on the front porch of this house in order to get away from the raging Ohio.
See that building to the right? Those are apartments. Wouldn't that be a neat place to live? That is if I didn't love the country, horses, big dogs that I don't want to have to walk and wide open country.
Yo Momma.....don't be gettin' any ideas about moving to the city.
Don't worry Dakota, there is no way this country gal could live in the city now. I love my house way too much!
That goes for us too Mom.
Ditto for me too Mom.
Not to worry my babies. I love where I am now and don't plan on ever moving.
