Just seventeen days into the worry and uncertainty

It's only a snapshot, but I'm writing a movie script in my head.

Old Greyhound Bus Terminal

The Greyhound Terminal, opened in 1940, was almost new when this was taken. It was as fine looking as the people in the photo--and the facade still is.

Smoking!

Must be due to the time I was being raised, but I have always thought that a woman who smoked could be quite attractive.
