It has been a long while that I have posted a Thursday Doors blog and my lame excuse was that I took a photo trip for a month in September and October, 2020. We traveled to Idaho, Montana, Colorado and Nevada while passing through Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Moab in Utah and other small towns in between our major itinerary. We tried to take a break from the pandemic thinking those states north and east of us were safer but when we returned home we discovered the COVID-19 infection rates spiked in those states; we made it back safely utilizing masks and social distancing practices everywhere we visited! The break in posting can, and does contribute to laziness and lack of motivation to continue posting so I’ll have to get motivated again to start posting doors.
Last week, I learned that Norm Frampton, the discoverer, originator and creator of Thursday Doors is stepping away from running and maintaining this world-wide blog. It sent shock ways through my brain and made me realize that I couldn’t let this last post for Norm slip away. So I’m posting a couple of door photos that I took on this last trip for our Thursday Doors mentor, Norm Frampton, Door Master Emeritus.
As Norm mentioned, he is not disappearing but taking a break from running the Thursday Doors blog and Dan Antion has taken on that responsibility. Dan is one the creative and funny door bloggers as well as posting other blogs so I’m looking forward to joining his new Door Blogs.
I found this appropriate door photo in Freak Alley in Boise, Idaho that encapsulates what Norm is doing.
The next photo is to remind Norm that if he doesn’t return to post a door blog in the future we’ll send out the wolves to find him. It was also taken in Freak Alley.
So Norm, this is bon voyage, not good bye! Good luck on your break and I hope to see your door posts on Dan’s TD site in the future. It was truly nice to know you even if it was a virtual relationship and maybe some day I’ll run into you in person. Take care and stay safe.
