The Greenest Building is the Existing Building

Good morning Grant Schneider 
It's easy to miss good stuff throughout the week. Maybe now that we have some control over the robo posters it will be a little easier. However, there's always that time factor, isn't there?

Gosh, I don't know why you wouldn't be able to re-blog Lou. Maybe it was a post he inadvertently tagged not to reblog???

I hope you have some fun lined up for the day. And, I hope you have more sun than we do today. It's a typical gray January day in Wenatchee.  Only 56 days until Spring. 😊

Thanks! It will be very interesting. Getting tops from seasoned pro's will be great.  We'll probably watch the American Express Game for awhile and most likely part of the game too.  Watched the end of last nights game....brrr sure looked cold!

Yes, I hate seeing the old buildings torn down too. I think that's why I love watching the remodel shows like Home Town and Love It or List It... bringing new life to the old.
