So here we are on the eve of year 8 of the blog (yes, year 8!) and it seems like it is time for a shift. Over the Summer I started the Adventures of Lego Librarian (Reading in Place) and that has been fun and oddly well received. The best place to see all of that series of photos is Instagram. So this blog will be seeing more of Lego Librarian. But not to fear, I’ll still be out and about!
Looking back at this blog so far, I have some new observations. My most popular posts in order of popularity since inception have been:
- FedEx (really?!)
- The Basement at the Casablanca Apartments (one of my favorites)
- Time to Stop U Betcha (with an awful photo, what was I thinking, I’ll go retake that!)
- The Umbrella Mural on the Storage Box
- St. Rita of Cascia Italian Catholic Church
- Haunted Tacoma — Children’s Industrial Home Site.
The home page is also popular.
There are 1,358 blog entries.
The most popular tag by far is Tacoma, followed by Art, WA, restaurant, park, coffee, Lakewood, historic, mural, vacant, store, food, downtown, University Place, Seattle, grocery, avenue, flowers.
And now today’s place is the Tacoma Bible Presbyterian Church at their previous location of S G St, Tacoma, WA 98405. It is in the Stadium District, across the street from Wright’s Park and Stadium Thriftway. This building is slatted for demolition with a mixed use development in the works. From what I could gather, there was a fire in the building and afterwards the City of Tacoma did not permit it to be renovated. The congregation of the church has a new location in University Place and their website is here if you want to know more. The nice folks from the church were having a sale which included several pianos, church pews, kitchen items, books, etc. One of the workers was telling me that the building had a seminary on the upper floor and that young men would watch the 4th of July fireworks from the window in their area.
