Saying Goodbye

In travels Saturday, I drove by Canal and Washington, on the South East corner is that magnificent old building that housed the D.S. Watkins Gallery and Coffeeshop. It's now closed, and empty. There's no sign of Deb and Dave, they packed up and moved to Portland last week. I'd thought they said they'd be gone around the first of March, but I guess they were ahead of schedule.

It really was sad. The banners are gone, there's no art on the walls, the building is an empty shell.

Deb and Dave are a wonderful couple, gracious, caring, good people. I know they'll be back to visit, their children and grand children live here. But meanwhile, it's just a little too quiet downtown.
