The Hotel


How would you like to spend your vacation in this hotel? What no swimming pool, no hot tub? I wonder if they had maid service. I wonder how many bathrooms it had or did it? This hotel still stands but not used as a hotel but people do live in it. Looks like the tree in front has done well. We met an elderly man a few months back who told us he came to Charlotte as a young single man to work in the oil field. He didn't have a job and didn't know anyone so he lived under a bridge until he found work. Then he lived in this hotel. He said while on his back on the bed he would watch the daddy long-legs spiders on the ceiling.

It's just so sad to see buildings go down hill. I'm sure when it was first built it was quite the place. There must have been a lot of spiders that the old man you talked with about it ~ that was his remembrance.

Well yes Jack didn't anyone ever teach you the facts of life? Where there is a daddy longlegs there has to be a mama longlegs.

in the old Hotel.

Paula I agree with you give the flowers while
a person is living. She enjoyed them while she
was alive. That is wonderful about crafting your poems. Life is to be enjoyed. I am trying before I get to old and can't get out of my chair. Your idea about the flowers makes sense to me. Thanks for stopping by. I always
enjoy your blogs. They are so interesting.

I'd plan a family reunion there, since most of the family I'd want to re-union with is dead anyway..
