MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 316 – NOVEMBER 12, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR TUESDAY, DAY 316 OF 2013: And in case no one has mentioned it to you, Day 316 just happens to be 11-12-13 in calendar shorthand. I don’t know if this calendrical coincidence is a lucky or an ill omen … but I’m not getting married today. Note: this calendrical coincidence will only happen one more time in this century on 12-13-14. I wonder how many babies born today will be named Thirteen?
Which yields one completed tulip …
So, what happened to the forecasted snow? While it did start coming down as flakes and flurries last night, it melted on making contact with the ground. Also in some spots the melted moisture turned into invisible black ice. One of these spots happened to be the floor boards on my deck, where I started to slip … caught myself and semi-twisted my ankle. OK, so call me a klutz …but I’m only slightly gimping around now. [NOTE: Mlle. Renee also slipped on the slick spot.]
A BLAST FROM THE PAST: The Grand Sculpture Hall Of The Palace Of Art
This is what the building, which is now the Saint Louis Museum Of Art, looked like in 1904 when it was the only permanent building constructed for the Louisiana Purchase exhibition/Saint Louis World’s Fair of 1904. Kind of cluttered, isn’t it? But that was the way art was displayed back then.
Notice that the original floors were poured concrete and the ceiling and archways were exposed decorative brickwork. A marble floor was laid in one of several restorations and updates and the exposed bricks covered.
The Sculpture Hall today. Thankfully more people.
