Pano/ThursdayDoors

Some days call for an undemanding entry in the realm of blogging. This is one. I present a panoramic view of a back lot parking area of downtown Mexico, Missouri. Doors to feast the eyes on in an array of types and conditions.

Linen Service/ Thursday Doors

Having worked in food service for a number of years, I recognized the business name we drove past in Mexico, Missouri. But what caught my attention before that was the building it occupied.

Arent’ these doors (and windows) attractive in how they accent this old building?

In a hometown business, front door appeal is the best first impression.

This Century Business Award tells it plainly that they have endured 100 years of service.

I stepped into the breezeway and was pleased to find a more informative plaque of their prestigious award.

Crown Linen Services operates in a pretty significant swath of area in Missouri and Illinois. And in case you hadn’t realized by now, they now have bragging rights to over 125 years of service.

Veterans Home/ Thursday Doors

Mother leading the way to the entrance of the Veterans Home in Mexico, Missouri. 

According to information provided on the Missouri Veterans Commission home page, a person must require institutional health care services, among other criteria to become a resident of one of these facilities. My Uncle Neal is one such person. He has severe short term memory loss and requires a significant amount of supervision. He can have a decent conversation with his visitors, but tomorrow, it will most likely be forgotten.

We’ve all entered the doors of these sort of places that have ‘that smell’ and I commend this home for not being in that category. And for my Uncle’s sake, I’m much appreciative.

This is a display donated by a previous Missouri governor, Kit Bond. It houses ‘coins’ he collected over the years. I only wish I could have read the card a little better. Basically these are Challenge Coins (the proper name) and are presented to recognize special achievement to military members.

Pictured above: our humble entourage that included my husband (the photographer for these shots) and my mother, aunt and myself. I love the moment captured between my aunt and uncle above. This is her true, genuine, caring, nurturing nature. Love her!

Let us all remember and honor those who have served in the upcoming Season of Giving and be especially thankful for the sacrifices made.
