Something old, something new...

Oh what a tangled web we weave ... when we get a too-cute idea for a post. (That's the editorial we, folks.) So I spotted something quite new at the Sharlot Hall Museum this afternoon, which immediately suggested I should look for something old, etc. I'd certainly say that the old windmill or the detail from the Bashford House (below) built in 1877 fits the something old criterion.
Here's the something new that started all this off! My first guess would be an automated weather station, tho I've never seen one before. Sure looks like wind direction/speed indicators there. What say you?

Sorry, I had to stretch a bit to locate something borrowed amongst my Sharlot Hall pictures, but then those blue tipsters belong to the city, not to the museum, so they fill the bill. As for the file cabinets out sunning themselves, I've no explanation except that some sort of remodeling or maintenance might be underway. It seems to me I saw other office furniture out on the back sidewalk a few days ago.

Ah, yes -- the something blue is the sky overhead, though one might just say that the plastic bag high in a tree is something blah in an otherwise pretty decent picture of a tree coming to life.
