Today, I’m taking you on a short tour of Harrison Springs, the Long-Term Care facility where Mom is.
Oh, and look at this: There are two sittin’ porches, one on each side of the doors. Here’s one.
Let’s have a look at those doors. How festive!
Nice lobby, with a safe fireplace. There are several of these in the facility, each decorated differently.
Now. Straight ahead is a dining room convenient to the residents of the nearest wing. The opening on the right, with the doors in it, leads to Mom’s wing.
We’re in that hall, with the main dining room on the left.
I haven’t asked Mom’s permission to show you her room, so I won’t do that. One more picture of the place, though, and a story that goes with it.
All the wings and areas have names, reflecting Corydon. We used to have a popcorn industry here, so there’s a Popcorn Place or Way or something. There’s an Old Capitol this and an O’Bannon that. This coffee area is my favorite.
Jock Timberlake had a diner on a downtown corner in Corydon. I think it was established just after WWII. It served plate lunches, old-school, with items like meatloaf, spareribs and kraut with mashed potatoes, and his famous Saturday pork tenderloin. The name was Jock’s Lunch, but everybody called it Jocko’s. There have been many places in that location since Jocko retired, but none like it.
Of course, I can’t go without sharing a Narnia lamp for Joey. See if you can spot the Gothmobile.
