Missed....

.... back in January, I mentioned how nice it was to sip gin and watch happy young lasses prepare for a lifetime of wedded bliss... how the times do change, people... just a few short months ago, it truly was a sight to recline back in a cozy nook and watch them come and go....

... prior to arriving at The Palm, I had even mentioned the scene to Denny... and how pleasant it was to see everything unfolding across the street in white satin and crushed silk.... and I was very much looking forward to seeing it again.... so it was with a heavy heart that I strode through the doors and onto the veranda to find the bridal parlor closed... windows boarded up... sprigs of weedlings clinging to cracks in the black asphalt driveway.... white antebellum columns standing stark and graying....

... next door, a building site... complete with fifteen-story crane and a high wall with "Coming soon - The Mansion on Peachtree! An exclusive living community".... times change, I suppose... progress marches on... but I sure missed seeing those young couples laugh and giggle as they walked the path towards their tuxedos and tiaras....

... some moments and some scenes are fleeting, I suppose... and once they are gone they are lost forever... so I'm kinda glad I had a chance to witness that moment back in January... the veranda at The Palm will never be the same again....

Bullshit So Far

Awwwww.... that's too bad. Good thing you still have your bench outside of Victoria's Secret to look forward to. ;)

"some moments and some scenes are fleeting, I supposeā€¦ "

True, dat. And in so many, many ways...

I lived on Peachtree for about ten years, right near peachtree battle, and at that point in time, from there all the way out to Sandy Springs, it was rare to find ANYTHING over five stories, except for the Sears building.

Everytime I get down that way, I am entirely freaked out by the way things have changed. I even slightly remember it prior to that, as my Aunt had a house right off Peachtree in the sixties and early seventies.
