Thursday Doors: Anything But Doors


I went for my semi-annual cancer check-up (all is well), and snappied some doors while I was at it.

Just outside the doctor’s building, I found an unexpected door.

Security or serial killer support? Don’t wanna know.

I found these arches, which might have been part of an entrance to an underground passage, but I didn’t see one on my side of the road, so I just photographed it.

Just beyond this was a good shot of two bridges from Indiana to Louisville. Well, and, of course, back.

A landmark.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — One of the world’s largest clocks and a southern Indiana landmark is working again.
The Colgate Clock has been a staple of the Clarksville skyline since 1924. The famous clock was built in 1906 and was moved from Jersey City to Clarksville for the opening of the Colgate-Palmolive plant.
When the Colgate plant closed in 2008, the clock stayed. It is still owned by Colgate.

It has worked intermittently since 2008. For quite some time now, it hasn’t worked. But the hands are ticking again as of Tuesday, June 13.

I decided to go to lunch, and picked a place I’d never been within a mile of my location. The GPS lady took me to Louisville, around the block, back to Clarksville, into a Zombie waste area, back and around another block, and, when I gave up and just pulled into a random parking lot, she told me I had reached my destination. And I had.

There was a water tower, so yay!

Doors galore

Next week, actual doors from the restaurant.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Lost, and electronics no help



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I think the GPS lady was right. You obviously were where you needed to be. A bridge, a clock and a water tower – perfect.

    I never heard of the Colgate Clock, so here’s one more in my courses of continuing education. My ancestors lived in Jeffersonville, so you’d think I’d have heard some mention of such a clock, but no. Congratulations on the good check-up!

      Maybe your ancestors pre-date the clock? Or maybe it’s a case of “Lived in NYC all my life and never saw the Statue of Liberty”.
