Possessive Pigeon

DSCF9861

This pigeon laid claim to the bench outside of Patrician Design and wasn’t going to give it up for anyone or anything. After I got this photograph, we had a brief standoff, which ended with me picking the pigeon up off the bench so Amanda could move the bench inside for the night. The pigeon did not fly away, but rather perched on the window ledge and flapped at the window like it was trying to get inside to the bench that it could see through the window.

Burning Down The Block

I am posting my blog very late today, because I got home late from the fire. The flamenco studio on the end of our block caught on fire yesterday afternoon and it turned into a major fire that threatened the rest of the block. Patrician Design was the most immediately threatened business, and fortunately the firewall between PD and the flamenco studio held. Our offices above Gold Street Cafe got a lot of smoke, but late, after they had the fire out and the power was restored, I opened up the office for some firemen and women who brought a big fan in and blew out as much of the smoke as the could from those offices. While they were blowing smoke out of the offices upstairs, I went downstairs and got all the servers fired back up. After that, the fire marshal gave me permission to secure the office, set the alarms and go home. The photos show the progression of the fire and the last photos are of Patti of Patrician Design celebrating that her boutique didn’t burn down. The fire caused a lot of excitement and anxiety for what started out to be a rather lazy afternoon.
