TIME AND TIME AGAIN: ANOTHER SQUARE FOR BECKY B – Marilyn Armstrong

TIME AND TIME AGAIN – 
A New Square for Becky B

All the old mills had clock towers and this is an old mill valley. You can’t always read the faces clearly. Some are too high up and sometimes, my eyes aren’t all that great.

I assume it was to remind people to show up to work on time. Or they just liked clocks.

None of the mills are mills anymore. Some are senior centers. A few are mini-shopping malls. The wooden ones have mostly burned to the ground. The prettier ones have become Senior Residences.

The brick one is now the Senior Center in Northbridge. It used to be a place for hobbyists to display their wares. There’s a dam directly behind it and adjacent to it is Whitin’s pond, where the swans live.

The stone one is a senior housing area and it is absolutely beautiful!

TIME FOR LUNCH: A SQUARE FOR BECKYB #6 – Garry Armstrong

Time for Lunch – 
A New Square for Becky B

Buy a new car? Get a free lunch. Miss Mendon is a restored 1950s Worcester dining car, so where else should it live except in the middle of Worcester County, Massachusetts?

It has become a part of the big collection of collectibles on the huge site of Imperial Automotive. We’ve bought our last three cars there and have never had any reason to not go back again.

They have a great selection of cars, new and used, but also, a highly entertaining shopping area. It includes antiques, and all kinds of shops, places to eat and a quality repair area.

Oh, and a really excellent car washing place. It’s so much better than any other one in our area, it’s a no-brainer where to take your car to be washed.

A STONE FROG SUNDIAL ON THE DECK: A SQUARE FOR BECKYB #5 – Marilyn Armstrong

STONE FROG SUNDIAL – #5

Our stone frog sits on a sundial. He has been sitting there for 18 years and looks a little worse for wear. But he’s a stony fellow, so he’ll survive!

THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CLOCK: A SQUARE FOR BECKYB #2 – Marilyn Armstrong

UU Clock: A New Square for Becky B

Today, we actually got outside with cameras. It wasn’t raining and for a few hours, it was partly sunny. It was cold, but not bitter … and I needed prescriptions and some food. I’ve been waiting for the beginning of the month and the arrival of money and pickings were getting a bit thin.

Phew. We made it.

Uxbridge was holding its annual Christmas Parade, so not only did we get my prescription and groceries, but we got a place to park. We took about 300 pictures of the Commons as they were getting ready to start the parade.

And then … I saw the clock and a tower! I took pictures! Oddly, it came out square. I forgot that the only part of the old church that still functions is the clock.

Time on the steeple. Anyone want to buy a church? This one is for sale.

JUNE IS SQUARE – ROOF 22 – Marilyn Armstrong

It’s that time of year again and squares are back! 

The Mason’s Hall on the Uxbridge Common — and a cannon and a memorial. So many memorials, we have no room for grass or walking around!

Well, the theme is ROOFS (or rooves if you prefer). Your roof can be;

A – Any type, any condition, any size, and in any location.
B – It could be a shot across rooftops, of one roof like today or even a macro
C – You might prefer to spend some time under the eaves and in the attic, or enjoy the view from above as Brian has already done today.


See you tomorrow!
