993rd Post - A Place I'll Never See Again

Some of you will know that the mansion of the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia has been undergoing very significant renovations for about 3 years now. She moves into the mansion in a few weeks. Today, my work arranged tours of the joint, and I was lucky enough to get an invite.

I took lots of pictures this morning. Probably too many, actually, because I think I was getting on people's nerves. But the way I figured it is, "I'll never be in this building again as long as I live. Ain't nobody going to appoint me Lt. Governor of the Province of Nova Scotia, ever. I'm unlikely to be invited to the annual tea party. I'm going to take full advantage of this opportunity".

I'll put up a couple of pictures here on the blog; but most of them will go up on my facebook. Not tonight. It's getting a little late and I don't look forward to driving in the snowstorm that's supposed to this evening. But probably on Friday I'll put up a picture or two and share my impressions with you.

I'll give you a hint though: It was pretty neat, being there today. I hope the 100 pictures or so that I took will give you some idea of the grandeur of the place.

Stay tuned.
