Thursday Doors – Around The Big-E

In an effort to keep this post short, I thought I’d stick with the Big-E, since don’t have to explain much. If you’re unfamiliar with the Big-E, you can read what I wrote about it here, here and, most recently, here.

Henrietta the cow has been in the Vermont building ever since Faith was a little girl. We always stopped to see her, and the tuxedo cat in the loft. At that time, we had Oreo, our first tuxedo cat.

If you’re unfamiliar with Thursday Doors, it’s a weekly parade of doors led by Norm Frampton and his fraternity of photographers, artists and door aficionados. The floats move down the Internet’s Main Street, covering the entire globe. If you want to join the parade, or if you just want to snag some good seats, head on up to Norm’s staging ground. Check out his doors and look for the Drum Major (Blue Frog). Click the frog, and get your position assignment.

Since I’ve already featured the famous doors of the Big-E, today’s gallery is a collection of random doors. No big story, no history, just some cool doors to enjoy. I wish I could give you a lobster roll or a sausage grinder, or, after yesterday’s comments, some cheese, or a beer to wash them down, but the Internet does seem to have some limitations.


  1. We have three buildings at the state fairgrounds that look remarkably like the Better Living Center you featured.
    Also, I had NO IDEA horses weigh so much. I am wowed.
    I love the windows on that shed with the barn doors. So cute.
    Yes, let’s get in line for cheese! :)

    • I knew I had to find a picture of cheese. That was pretty rough yesterday. I’m guessing buildings from that period tend to look alike, especially buildings of that size.

      I love the shed with the glass barn doors. I can only imagine how often I’d be repairing the glass if that was in my yard, but it’s pretty, that’s for sure.

      I have a coworker who has a horse. I thought it was big at 1,000 pounds. These guys are huge! The smallest one we saw was 2,000 lbs.

  2. Great shots and lots of variety this week in the door choices.
    I am going to have to get down to this event…one of these years.
    With all that great food to try I’m sure they’ll have to roll me out in a wheel barrow if I ever do get down there though.
    Fun post Dan :-)

  3. I had a fancy for the doors on the stable with the horse but again that is just me, Dan. Really enjoyed the gallery and I am glad that you were able to get out to enjoy yourself and have some fun. Thank you for the great photographs. I truly enjoyed them! 💕🐾💕

  4. This weekend I must have totally blanked out in my catching up phase! I remember reading about the meanie mop lady saleswoman! I am hoping I may have written something on another post on this subject.
    I love the food! I really like the elegant white doors while waiting for cheese, Dan.
    I think the cute little shed or miniature building with glass doors was unique. The little log cabin with wooden carved items reminds me of maple syrup (Log Cabin brand)! Mmm.

    • I remember those little log cabin tins, Robin. I haven’t thought about them in a long time. I liked the little shed with the glass doors. I couldn’t own something like that, but it’s beautiful.


  5. I ♥♥♥ the red shed, and little white barn with the steeple/bell tower, and glass doors!

    I need/want a good recipe for lobster rolls. I have some leftover lobster tail from dinner last night and that sounds like a good thing to make with the leftovers.

    Going to do an internet search now. :)
