Some signs of the times.
This sign is empty; it used to advertise the Broasted Chicken and pop specials or Welcome Hunters or Welcome Fishermen, depending on the time of year.
The Post Office which is attached to the store is still open but only for a few hours in the mornings. The steel door in the photo was installed after several break ins at the store.
The store was a mainstay in Osage for many years. We were sad to see it close. You could tell it was coming, they added an aisle of dollar store “stuff”. The shelves became emptier as time went on and when the coolers stood empty I began to wonder how long they would hang on.
The Millpond is frozen over. Some idiot has a fish house out there…hope they caught something and survived to see another day without disappearing under the ice.
Foot Update: Our daughter the Nurse Practitioner looked at my foot and declared it a Spider or something similar bite. I am taking some Zyrtec as she suggested but it really makes me sleepy…I get to sleep 14 or more hours after taking it. AND dream oh my…Technicolor adventures for hours and hours.
