Now, I'm back to Herne. I did some math and realized I don't have a whole hell of a lot of time before the end of school for the kids (The equation for 'a whole hell of a lot' is extremely complicated, so I won't go into detail here). I'm hoping for a solid first draft by the end of June.
Other things have been happening. BT Corner, the little park that our local Heritage Committee has been working on is getting ever closer to completion. Last week metal face plates for concrete plinths and custom benches were installed
The custom benches set the right balance between function, beauty and style and mirror the industrial history of the Beatty Brothers to whom the park is dedicated.
These sandblasted stainless steel plates not only cover the faces of the unattractive concrete plinths that will each bear information panels on their opposite sides, but they send a message.
Family. Community. Industry.
Yeah, that's the town I choose to live in.
And look at that -
the benches even work...
