This week's pics from about town...
Down in the alley, this black vulture kept an eye on things.
He had quite a view from his attic window.
He's the latest tenant at this occupied rental property, whether or not the other tenants know.
But no one can hang around the apartment all the time.
The detour will go into effect tomorrow, Monday, April 9. Look for the signs around town.
Route 441 will be shut down between Mill and Plane Streets.
A flock of herons flew down the river the other day.
Going to points unknown
Inside out at the bottom of Locust
Here's a longer view.
Three houses are being demolished to make way for an apartment building.
This is what's left of one of them - a mobile home that once sat on Bank Avenue.
"When the walls come tumblin' tumblin' down."
This 5-ton claw made quick work of things. All that's left is to knock down the two joined houses on Locust.
A second excavator was brought in on Saturday, but the project might hit a snag in the near future. PPL still needs to disconnect the electrical lines leading to the house. Until that's done, only limited demolition can be completed. PPL said it will address the issue within the next 21 days, according to a source close to the project.
Time for a quick adjustment
Ready to go
Heritage Drive parking area shaping up
Soon to be paved...
as soon as all the boulders are combed out.
Was this a victim of last week's high winds?

So does this.
The Easter bunny, or an offspring, is hanging out at Peerless Hardware.
More parking-to-be along Commerce Street
According to their owner, these three miniature greyhounds are named "Captain," "Morgan," and "Bacardi" (not necessarily in that order in the photo).
Two killdeers were performing some sort of mating ritual down by the railroad tracks. (It's spring, after all.)
You'd have to be a killdeer to understand any of this.
Uh-oh ... pedestrian crossing sign down.
Let's hope it's just the sign and not a pedestrian.
Is this the final resting place of Oliver Douglas's tractor?
The ever-changing...yet NEVER-changing...Avenue G (300 block)
Ready to meet the challenge
Feral City - still very much occupied
Some folks go right up to the line.
Some folks go over it, and use it as their private parking space, line of sight be damned!
We each have our cross to bear.
Until we end up here.
Fascinating fact found on the "internets":A cemetery refers to a large burial ground, typically not associated with a church. A graveyard is typically smaller than a cemetery and is often associated with a church. It is part of the churchyard.
