OCT 7, 14 .. PALENVILLE .. NEW YORK ..

Patti and I have been visiting our friends Joe, Cheryl and Erin in Palenville New York .. so I wanted to post some photographs of the local-scene.

First you jump onto Interstate Highway 87 and head south out of Albany New York ..

When I travel .. I search for local libraries so that I can use their computers IF they have them.  Palenville has a great library and many computers.

Meet Palenville’s library !

I did not ask the librarian IF it was her car that matched the color of the Palenville library.  Just check it out.

“Ah-h-h-h-h Captain .. can we move on ?” .. “Hi ‘Zilla .. OK .. I’ll move on past the library.”

Next to the library is the local Beauty Salon .. for Gals AND Guys .. an equal opportunity Salon.

Right across the street from the library and the beauty salon is the Palenville General Store.  It is nifty ‘Zilla.

Joe .. Cheryl .. Erin .. IF you ever look-at-this-post .. will you clue-me-in as to exactly what you know about this remarkable stately handsome building.

THANK YOU CHERYL AND ERIN !!  .. THANK YOU WIKIPEDIA for your fount-of-knowledge ..

LATE BREAKING NEWS FLASH .. The Romanesque style Rowena Memorial School in Palenville New York was built by Lysander Lawrence in memory of his wife Rowena who passed away in the 1890s.  Construction was begun in 1899 and the first classes were held in 1901.   It remained the Palenville school for over 70 years until 1977 when a major school district reorganization consolidated many rural schools.  It then became the library until 1989.  A new owner made it into a jewelry factory until he was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2006.  It has recently been purchased by a new owner.

Just in case the Holy Spirit is calling-to-you .. Palenville has a few Homes where God may be found !  Would you rather believe and be wrong .. or not believe and be wrong ? .. “What’s that Gullible ?” .. This IS my Doxology !  Just a little ribbing-between-friends here ! “Friends ?  We’ve been friends until the end but this looks like the end my friend !” .. giggle .. :-)
