Baileys Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin
With apologies to Judith Viorst, Alexander is not the only one who has bad days. Our drive to Door County from St. Paul was relentless rain, which has not stopped. Worse is that our 13-year-old-dog, Maggi who is with us, is very sick. We visited a wonderful vet clinic in Green Bay that communicated with Maggi's regular vet at the U of Mn; it's determined that she has kidney failure.
The autumn leaves are at its peak but Maggi's autumn years are about to end. We will leave for home early. My break has been short-lived!

Saint Paul Academy is embarking on building an addition to the school which will open after a great deal of work has been completed. The design focuses on a spectacular Performing Arts Center with additional space that will overhaul the entire appearance of the school. Stay tuned for more additional photos as the work progresses.

After eating a delicious luncheon plate at Foxy Filafel cafe I browsed at Succotash, a vintage shop at 781 Raymond Avenue in St. Paul and was attracted to this chair manufactured by Herman Miller. I liked the finish and curve of the wood. I don't know if this is a "typical" price for this style chair, but others on eBay have similar or higher prices depending on the kind and quality of the wood. The shop is designed well without the appearance of clutter. The center aisle is wide and the shelves with many items do not appear crowded. Fun to browse there.

Not quite finished yet, but the Highland Park neighborhood library is scheduled to open on November 16, and I am anxiously waiting. I am a loyal patron of libraries. Love them all!! The shiny windows promising lots of interior natural light.
