Tis the Season – #ThursdayDoors

I almost used this house in the bus party of Atonement in Bloom, but I didn’t think Lilith could escape from that attic window.

No, not for Christmas, for leftovers. Following a short holiday week here in the US, I was greeted by the week that marks the end of our company’s fiscal year. A week spent weaving in and out of budgets and trying to finish that which should be paid for in 2018. Suffice it to say, it doesn’t leave much room for taking pictures, or even much room for sorting through pictures I’ve already taken.

So, just like the turkey sandwich waiting for me in the fridge, you get a little of this, a little of that and a fairly short read. In fact, my Thursday Doors post will be shorter than my One-Liner Wednesday post. Yes, I know, it’s not like those are ever short.

I also want to go easy on you because tomorrow is the last Friday of the month, and I will be posting for #WATWB. I don’t normally mention other challenges on this page, but snice it’s all good new, I hope Norm doesn’t mind.

Who’s Norm? I hear the new kid in the corner ask. Why Norm is the jolly elf that gives us the opportunity to share and view pictures of doors from all over the world. Like that other holiday figure, Norm makes his rounds, not in one night, but in about 54 hours – but he does it every week. OK, he takes a week off here and there, but still, that’s a lot of door photos, and everyone on his list is nice. No coal in anyone’s stocking (although there have been pictures of coal chute doors). If you want to see the doors Norm has gathered for this week, check out his workshop up north. Look at Norm’s doors and then look for the blue frog. That magic tadpole will let you into the master gallery.


The pictures in this little gallery are from various places and the captions should tell the story. Thanks for stopping by No Facilities and, as always, Thanks Norm for the opportunity to share our favorite doors.

    1. I have to imagine it’s not easy to keep these farms afloat. Fortunately, there isn’t a lot of demand for the land in this section of the state. I love driving through, and seeing how they crafted these farms in between hills and streams.

    1. Thanks! There are two inclines still working in Pittsburgh, and they each offer an amazing view of the city, and they are fun to ride. You can even tour the machine room. I love driving through central PA, it’s just so pretty,

    1. Thanks Joanne. I think that would be considered a belfry, since as far as I could tell, there are bells in that center section. It’s funny that this church is set off from the town green, but it is a fine looking building.

  1. Nice pictures. Do you purposely take pictures that don’t have people in it? Or is it just the way it is? I mean in India, I have to make an effort to actually get rid of people from my pictures. We are so populated even when you head in the jungles be sure to find someone already there before you.

    1. Mostly, it’s just the way it is. The day in Billerica, was cold with a light drizzle. One of my upcoming posts will be from New York City, and there will be people because it’s hard to avoid. Around Connecticut, it’s pretty easy to avoid people. I don’t mind them being in the picture, but I wouldn’t want them blocking the door.

  2. Love the farms, barns, doors and incredible landscape. The Congregational Church in Billerica is quite impressive. I know it’s an optical illusion, but that telephone pole looks like it’s leaning right on the church. The incline would not be for me! Nope. No way.

    Have a great weekend with lots of relaxing, Maddie walks, MuMu scratching, and MiMi disturbing.

    1. Thanks Ginger. I did have to walk around to see if the pole had fallen on the church.

      The Editor is right with you. The one time I took her there, she waited at the top fo the rest of us to return. It has that old look of something that is about to fall apart. I’t s a fun ride, I never get tired of it.

    1. A friend of mine owned one of the large white houses for many years. I was inside, several times and it really was a neat house. The incline had been closed for repairs early in our trip. When I saw the cars moving, I needed to snap a pic.

    1. Are your farms getting gobbled up into even bigger farms or turned into other stuff? These farms are probably baby-sized by comparison to the farms you guys have, at least the ones I’ve driven by.

  3. great variety (as always) and loved the tis the season start – feels good to read (and I just happened to write that in my post with an ornament – and then came here and saw it… ahhh)
    oh and loved how you said this:

    Like that other holiday figure, Norm makes his rounds, not in one night, but in about 54 hours

  4. Dan, I’ve always liked leftovers — especially these. :)
    Any of those houses might have been in my fictional Atonement, TN. And that old barn — that could easily be where Lilith’s misadventure in the van took her! With your permission, I would use that in a post, maybe next Saturday?
    Terrific post, my friend. Sorry to be so late. Hugs.

  5. Another good collection of pics, Dan! Curious: How long have you been doing door posts? It just occurred to me that if you’ve been at it for four years, you probably have more posts just about doors than I do posts in total. O_o
