From Richmond to West Virginia and back again

Posted in Photography, Politics, Richmond with tags on September 27, 2017 by kozmicdogz

On our recent trip from Richmond Va to West Virginia we did not see any confederate flags, or pumper stickers, signs or any other tributes to the current president.

I thought maybe the tide was turning,
but that is yet to be determined.

Just to be clear…

Ok, just to be clear you cannot believe anything that the current administration says.

If you even think for a second, “that doesn’t sound so bad” go back to sleep or smack yourself awake and stand up.

They are liars and will do anything for money.

Greed is their god,

power is their game.

44 Years Ago Today – December 27, 2016

Forty-four years ago today I moved to Richmond Va. My 1963 Valiant with the push button transmission was borrowed from my mother, and packed with all of my possessions. I remember getting off 95 at the Boulevard exit near Parker Field and traveled south passing diagonally parked cars down the middle of the street heading towards Broad Street.

I saw on the left the Peoples Drug Store with its all night lunch counter and right in front of me down 2 blocks the statue of Stonewall Jackson. At that point I had only begun to realize that I had not only just traveled the longest 100 miles in my life but had found a new home.

Lunch

Posted in Film, Richmond, Writers & Writing on September 21, 2016 by kozmicdogz

Yesterday I had lunch in a building that I had not been inside of in 30 years.

I used to dream of going inside this building again and tell the young people working there, that I had worked there once. In my dream they were excited. In real life not so much.

The ceiling was the same.
The stairway painted but underneath the same.
The bathrooms were in the same place with an additional one  added and now open spaces with tables that were once closed off spaces with doors.

Large windows where we watched the world go by were still there, but the world outside had changed even though the sidewalk was the same.

The marquee had a new sign screwed on top of it. I image a few letters may still be hanging on to the old one underneath.

Now you enter through the exit doors and the candy counter is gone.
The blue and red carpet is also gone exposing the original concrete floor while the roof still leaks.

2 CENTS will be charged

Overdue

 

You can no longer keep this book for seven days, but the fine is still 2 CENTS a day.
