It has been cold here.BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!! One of the coldest winters I can remember. Back in my younger days I can recollect the 'ol coal furnace in my basement just going strong. The workin men would be busy all day and into the night keeping the furnace loaded with coal to keep my rooms nice and toasty warm. The smell of coal burning is one of my favorite aromas. it brings back a time when the families shopped here and the kids would come into the store laughing and playing hoping for a candy stick, or to see if a piece of mail would be in the post.
Times have changed since then. I no longer have my big beautiful coal furnace. The bricks have been taken down and are piled under the stairs leading to the basement . The chimney no longer graces the north side of my building ."sniff" the strong smell of the coal is but a faint memory.
I feel lonely in this cold weather... I am looking forward to when my owners open the doors again for the season, and this place gets jumpin with people and noise again. Spring is right around the corner.
