2722 Lakeside Week 6, 2006

Not much to say about the programming--it has been so hot I've been staying inside the house, or slipping off to the coffee shop early. But we had a thunderstorm this morning and the temperature has dropped a bit. So I decided to go for a walk. Then the rain began again, so I just took a few photos. I ducked into the Lakeside Archives and found Jan, the archivist, helping my neighbors Ed and Karen research their house. Shortly after we bought our cottage, we cleaned out the crawl space. The former (and only other) owner had been a house painter, so in addition to old paint and turpentine cans and garden tools, we found his parents' 19th century marriage license and his baptismal certificate in fancy frames. We donated them to the archives.

Jan had put several panoramic photos on display from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Observation: people in the "old days" were thinner and they wore more clothes. Most of the women were wearing hats and the men suits. Must have been dressed for Sunday services. Didn't see many children or teens, who may have all been sleeping in or swimming--assuming it was allowed on Sunday.

These ladies are all from our church in Columbus, here enjoying a respite at Lakeside, and admiring my husband's paintings at the Patio Restaurant.

Our friend Wes is enjoying a novel in the Pavilion by the lakefront. Notice the puddle to his right from the morning storm.
