If I'd had my camera, I'd have taken pictures of:
- the 1936 globe that Eli identified by knowing which countries existed at that time
- the cabinet full of old Franklin yearbooks
- the cat fetus in a jar ("everyone wants to see this," said Eli, rolling his eyes)
- the school's underground tunnels . . . that we couldn't visit because the principal made them off- limits (some non-archives kids got into them and left graffiti)
The school was built in 1923, so it has lots of history. . . . more information is available on the Franklin website. They're working on a google site, too. Some of the other kids were working on an Ashton Kutcher project. He attended Franklin back in the day
Well, I don't have Franklin archives photos, but I do have a few photos of other things: some items I made with hardware cloth.
It's not really cloth, of course. It's wire mesh. I bought some a while ago to make a cap on our furnace exhaust pipe. Small critters had gotten in and met their doom when they got down to the furnace. And they caused the furnace to shut off . . .
Anyway, the leftovers were great for making this lettuce cage.
It's not to keep the lettuce in, but to keep the bunnies out. The lettuce doesn't like this location (note how spindly it is) so I'll do spinach next year.
I also made a cage for the strawberry pot. Same idea.
This project was an indoor one. An earring rack.
So now I'm a wire textile person, too.
