A Tuesday Tease

Lots to do today and it seems like no time to do it so I'm afraid you're going to have to wait a bit longer for my post about the trip Princess Patti and I took to the old Sterling Opera House in Derby on Halloween night. I apologize sincerely but when you've got over 300 pictures to go through, it just seems to take awhile!

In the meantime, being that today is Election Day, I thought I'd post just a couple of pictures from our trek through the basement of the building which used to be the Derby Town Hall once upon a time. It was pretty cool down there in an old and dilapidated, paint-coming-off-the-walls-in-flakes kind of way!

In this picture Patti is checking out the old voting machine that we found in the former Town Clerk's Office. Obviously it hasn't been used in about 40 years ...

Hmm, I wonder who won that year??

Don't forget to go out and exercise your right to vote and then have yourselves a good Tuesday!


  1. Hi,
    I was here 15 minutes ago to leave a comment and poof! the Internet went out. Spooky.

    The phone went out too, and my cell phone was not charged. I was in a tizzy.

    Alas, both have returned. Interesting photo of my frizz. haha

    I shall be posting something soon.

  2. That's and old voting machine for sure. I've not seen one before.

    Have a terrific day Linda. I'm off to vote. Big hug. :)

  3. We've come a long way, baby! That relic was interesting to see. Wonder how accurate those were? No voting going on here in Mayberry today, but we'll be checking returns later on tonight nationally. Should be interesting. Big hugs...

  4. I can't see the first photo but the second one is interesting Linda. :)

  5. That voting machine is a monster! Just imagine how big those hanging chads would be!! bwahahahaha!

    Big Hugs ♥xo

  6. You are correct, everyone should exercise their right to vote, and they should vote RIGHT.....

  7. Great post Linda. Love that picture of the old voting machine.

  8. we don't vote in florida today, no election but if there was one, i'd be there!

    gosh that voting machine is cool looking!

    smiles, bee

  9. Hi Linda, I do like that voting machine. Looks like 1969 was a good year for buying new equipment.
    I didn't forget to vote but neither Mrs. Jim nor I voted. All there were was eight Constitutional Ammendments. They all were going to pass by a big margin. Houston will get a new mayor but that is 'down there' and we are 'up here.'

    I hope you won, you will know by now.

  10. Wow, we sure have come a long way with the voting machines! lol It's like when I see pictures of what the first computers looked like, they took up a whole room!! I'd so love to hang out with you, I love investigating old run down places like that as well:-) xoxo

  11. That old voting machine is way cool!
