Thanks for everyone's nice comments- BUT I am not the host- Sandee of Comedy Plus is! Have a lovely day!

Old and boxy. That was the way of many buildings back in the day. I hope the building is given a new life with a much needed facelift.

Have a fabulous WW. ☺

I love these old buildings and it's a joy to see them re-purposed instead of torn down.

That is very exciting that the old building is going to get fixed up instead of torn down. So glad that Lucy found you all. Have a great day.

That's really neat. It'd be interesting to see the hospital I was born at. I wonder if it's still there.
