Really enjoying your walks here and into the past...  and seeing the deep connection to the women in your family.

 

Do you teach at the university?

@ Blanche: On my walk today, I took a close look at the walls. Even though the creepers were removed decades ago (a workman's blow torch set them on fire and they realized what a fire hazard they were), I could still see a few dead vines clinging here and there.

@ Marie: It's been a great detective mystery to unravel my grandmother's past. She was pretty mum about much of it. No, I don't teach--I'm an advisor.

 

@ Pyper and Ruth: Thank you both. There will be a little more to come, but I hope not to wear it out.

I was gonna say, I really like vines!!  Are vines really a fire hazard on a brick building?

@ Syd: Actually, one reason this building has never been torn down is that it was constructed to be fire-resistant (although NOTHING is fire-proof). But it's very close to some library holdings that contain rare, priceless, irreplaceable documents, and the university is vigilant about protecting them. I guess the blow-torch incident made someone think the fire danger, though small, wasn't worth the aesthetic trade-off.
