BRR.. its a bit chilly and my bones are already starting to feel the winter creeping in.
I was watching as my people were closing up for another season, gazing on as the work begins. Place all photos away safely , inventory the gift shop and store the items in a dust free place. Then make sure all exhibits on loan are secured and safely stored. Its only 5 months until they open for 2011 and everything becomes full of life once more, but they are careful to place all items in the safest place, even for a short time. Then moves in the caretaker.
We had a great season and alot of people learned about me and asked lots of questions.. More folks came to share their stories and tell about there experiences concerning coal camp life. I had a wonderful time.

Today I had a thought and asked myself :
"Why do we preserve history?"
What do we hope to gain? whats the need for it? I would love to hear others thoughts on this.
I'll get back to this soon, I sure have alot of thoughts to share.
till next time
