of course ...


of course
 it will be
done
 by christmas
 the new year's eve fools
 have
 to have
some
 where
 to stand
 packed
 like sardines
 in the frigid cold
 to watch
 the ball drop
 dont they?

 that was
 sort of 
the conversation
 i had
 with
 one of the female construction workers
 on
 the times square remodel
 the other morning
 when
 i stopped
 to take that photo

as
 for 
h&m
 its
 supposed
 to be open
 by
 november

  they're going
 to
have
to
 be
putting in
 some
 golden overtime hours
between
 now and then
 from what i can see 
as i walk past
if they're going to live up to what's on the sign

 if
they'd
 only
remove
 those
 friggin'
 'walls'
 so the street
 would
 be back
 to its normal width
 i dont think
 i would mind the mess
 so much

 ya know

  1. Our little town has been under construction for like two years. A real mess. Bulldozers. Mud. No where to walk. SO glad it finally ended last Friday! Hope yours is over soon! Happy Weekend Daryl!

  3. hee, was once one of those new year's fools. lucklily my friend lived on E 44th so getting home wasn't all that bad. but yes, packed sardine was how i felt, a claustrophopic one at that. if anyone is seriously even thinking of going...my advise, don't drink anything that day!

  4. They lie like a rug! There's an Sbux coming to Witney, the closest market town to West Cottage. It's been coming for three years. Presently, I have to go all the way to Oxford to get my chai tea latte. (Bunch of wana-be players)

  6. Daryl, won't it be so nice when it's all finished!! When they are gone, you'll miss seeing what they are doing and the progress they make each day!

  8. Wow, what a mess. Are they going to let you take the "eyes" when they finish construction.

  9. I'm sure that they have been told that they HAVE to have it done by New Years Eve! I've always wondered who in the world would want to be in the middle of that crowd when you could be comfortably at home watching it at home...or better yet ignoring it entirely!
