Refrigerator Door

031913

I had about an hour to spare. An hour in a town like Colorado City might have felt like an eternity to some people. To me, though, it was barely a start: I am already planning a return visit.

For one thing, I found this fantastic place – an abandoned building just a few blocks from the courthouse. All the windows were gone; so was most of the furniture. But the refrigerator was still there. Most of it, anyway.

  1. These old appliances are becoming popular as storage chests now. I’m not chic enough to want one, though, but I do like the photo a lot.

  4. I really like this one too. I lived in a house with an artist, and a fridge like that. He had painted in red letters as wide as the fridge, “FRIDGE” from top to bottom. We always new where to find the cold beer.

    • I just don’t think it’s possible to overestimate the importance of being able to find the beer. I realize that at some point muscle memory kicks in, but until then….

      • Not only was he an artist, but also a rugby player. If you know anything about rugby players it’s likely to be their love for beer. I am still surprised he did not paint BEER on the fridge instead. Some dim understanding that milk and eggs could also be found in there I suspect.

      • I don’t know much about rugby, since I live in Texas, but my feeling is that if your roommate had a “dim understanding” he was actually fairly intelligent, as far as rugby players go. Or, maybe I am thinking of football players……

      • Rugby players seem to often be quite intelligent, which doesn’t explain playing such a physical game with no padding, nor their terrible beer fuelled after-game songs.

      • So, I guess I WAS thinking about football players…!
