More pictures from my daughter...

The manlift was in the storage building last night when we drove around there...


Now they've brought in 2nd excavator...   sure looks like demolition equipment to me!


And they're still bringing in dirt...  probably to fill in where the basement is!!!

I was hoping another old building in Historic Monroe wouldn't be going away.

Yippee, another pharmacy. Personally, I have been a Village pharmacy customer for years but will be leaving them. I have continued to go there because of their stores small size and short wait. Since we will be forced into the larger store option we have decided to go to Kroger since we buy groceries there anyways, may as well get the 50 bucks free groceries and longer pharmacy hours. Really has nothing to do with the armory as we have always used the drug store on Cole Rd. and decided on this when our pharmacist told my wife they were moving to a larger location on Monroe St. but it is sad to see yet another piece of history torn down.

They now have a sign up on the parcel but it caught me by surprise and I didn't catch everything it said.  I saw something about the design company but not even sure it said it was going to be a pharmacy :-\ :-\ :-\

When i drive by i think about those people who's backyard view took a dramatic, but temporary, change of scenery.
