DAN ‘S THURS. DOORS – Aug 5

Like this door, but a little too much text – don’t you think?
All the doors in this post are found in Old Town Sacramento.
They have kept the outside of the buildings in the style
of the Goldrush ca. 1850 that made California so well known.

Judging from the mask, I took this image during the pandemic of 2020
As a matter of fact it was July 4th, and we did not want to stay home, moping!!
We found some restaurants and shops (non-essential!) open:)
California may be known as a democratic state, but that is “the news” slant.
There are plenty who have been defying the tyranny of the lockdowns!
But what about all those people who died….?
Just an example, in Huntington Beach 177 people died. No, not 177.000!

Another non-essential open door.The streets were not empty.
I just waited like I always do until all the pedestrians were out of the way.

DAN A.’s THURSDAY DOORS – July 22 My Old Neighborhood

In my old neighborhood in Southern California
is typically suburban.
Things may be older, but people take care of it.
No graffiti. Have heard that in the Northern states
the yards have no visible boundaries, like a hedge or fence.
It’s the opposite here.
Everyone has a fence or bushes and trees to mark their property.

No graffiti. Not even on garage doors. It would be too boring for some.
But I was happy here. Did my exercise walk in my neighborhood five days a week.
There were a few guys who always worked on their antique cars,
and I knew exactly when they would have a show,
because their friends would show up, also with their antigue cars.
One of them once asked if I was a wrestler (because they always
saw me come by with weights in my hands).
Was happy they thought so highly of women (they were all retiring age)

I think the most common door color in California, is a creamy white, with some glass.
So opposite from the Netherlands.
Dark green, navy blue, brown.
Whenever I come back to the neighborhood,
we’ll go out to eat with the one who bought our house.
That’s the type of neighborhood it is.
