My cousin broke up with his girlfriend and I guess she gave me this old book. (Thanks Sara!)
Its an old Atlas from the mid 1930s.
So its kinda interesting to see buffalo from a little while back.
The Rockpile used to be a reservoir?? I didn't know that
Buffalo was a pretty happening city in 1935.
I keep finding cool stuff on this map. Should I put more up? Waterfront, downtown, Black Rock, 1st Ward?
Up next: Map of Rochester. Smaller city -> more detailed map. The Rochester map shows every little shop and shows how much got wiped out when 490/The Inner Loop got put in.

This apartment has radiant heat and I think its the best thing since indoor plumbing. THE BEST.
4-day week this week thanks to the first day of gun hunting in Michigan on Friday. Gotta love the Uncle Generous.

It was good to see people again and to meet people I hadn't yet. Of course I missed everyone who weren't there.
PART THE DEUX:
Its not that I want to talk about this but I want to be able to look back and read about it at some point.
Friday was a pisser at work. It was choppin day. Something like 35 people got it.
I came in late and guys I work with said people were getting fired. I thought they were joking and got mad and told them to stop goofing around. I didn't believe them until a guy from the next lab down came in with a plastic bag and started cleaning out his desk drawers.
I started out pretty cool but five minutes later I was just as bad as the other guys: my heart was racing and my palms were sweaty. How pathetic.
Our manager came down to our lab and we thought that was it. I don't know if he was nervous or what but it took him a while to say he was done in our building meaning they had fired everyone on the fire list.
I don't know how to explain it but it just makes you dumb to be fired or think you will be. Even if it is not personal or you saw it coming. Its like someone is poking a finger in your brain: you just are dumb.
We went outside and took a walk just to try to get our shit straight.
So its like the other shoe dropping. At least we have a reasonable expectation that whatever was going to happen did.
Anyways that should be enough to remember stuff by.
