A sign…

Construction is progressing on the wine shop renovation, and if all goes as planned, the walls will be primed and painted today.  Perhaps a little trim tomorrow, and then Sunday we hit the road for Brimfield.  Well, not technically hit the road, as we will be on a boat to the mainland, and then leaving early on Monday for the drive down.

It has been a busy few days going from demolition to construction to starting the finish, but we are closing in.

And, yesterday, something pretty cool happened.  The lovely personal personal trainer and I were discussing what sort of decor we want to put on the back wall of the shop.  Previously it was a deal elderberry wine color, but we thought we might lighten it up, and both thought a large patent drawing of a corkscrew would be a nice addition.  There is already a giant Bennit patent that rests on the outside of the building, and the logo includes a Barnes double helix.   The same Barnes appears on the shop’s front window.

So, we were discussing various options, and then yesterday, as the sun was shining rather brightly through our front windows, one of my customers pointed out a shadow that was cast onto the back wall.

I think it is a sign.  We definitely should add a patent drawing on the back wall.

    While I can’t beat the shadow on the wall, another option would be to cover the wall with blow ups of the patents of corkscrews. This would cover you for the overcast days and still leave the shadow on sunny days.

    The Hotel at MIT (Cambridge, MA) has done this with patients of inventions that have come out of MIT and it goes over very well.
