Last week, I needed to go shopping. That’s a new experience. This wasn’t grocery shopping or shopping in any establishment deemed essential by our state government. This was shopping at WoodCraft, a woodworking tool store – 100% non-essential…according to some. However, to a guy planning to renovate a workshop, this stuff is pretty much essential in my book.
Between the Internet, some well-designed systems and a store manager who was bound and determined to help, we got the job done. I found the things I wanted. I was able to check the inventory in the store. I emailed the manager. He filled the order, and when I pulled up in front of his store, he loaded the stuff into my car. Easy-peasy.
The WoodCraft store is in West Springfield, Massachusetts. On my way home, I was planning to stop at our local dairy farm in Enfield, Connecticut. On the way south toward the farm, I drove through the Enfield Historic District. Since there was almost no traffic on the road, I was able to pull over and snap a few photos. This isn’t a complete inventory of the district, but I was able to get pictures of a few interesting doors.
I also captured a couple of doors at Maddie’s park. They are plain vanilla boring doors, but I’ve never seen either one of them open, so I was happy.
