KFnet in T-Town

All the King's Horses and All the King's Men...

A Construction Update

...couldn't put the King's Inn back together again. That's right, it's under the Sounder Lakewood extension knife and, along with other nearby buildings is disappearing in the name of progress. The corner of Pacific and South Tacoma Way is definitely looking different these days.

I'll put together another construction update for south downtown soon 'cause there's plenty going on down there!

Can't say as I'll miss the King's Inn, but I do wonder how all those old masonry buildings around it are going to handle the shaking from construction and trains.

I remember when it was still the TraveLodge, complete with Sleepy Bear mascot.

What are they going to do with the sign? It is pretty retro cool.

About

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
