el·e·va·tor – Out of Order



  1. a platform or compartment housed in a shaft for raising and lowering people or things to different floors or level.

Tuesday, December 17th, from early a.m. throughout the day, the Manor elevator will be decommissioned for service and repair.  It is likely this will be a day-long event.

Plan accordingly. The carrying of holiday gifts or grocery bags laden with treats may be best suited for any other day of the week.

The good news? Our building has not one but two beautifully designed stairwells.  Here is our chance to become directly reaquainted with the architecture!  Yes, yes, easier said than done if heading to the 2nd floor rather than the 7th.

Here then is one way to welcome the chill in the air before coming into the building… offsets stair climbing.


New Dryers in the Laundry — And the cat…

No, no, not a euphemism.  Two new dryers have been purchased.  There will be tumbling. There will be heat.  It will be delightful to have the full wash/dry process available in the building again!

The delivery team failed us today, but the new machines are now rescheduled for delivery and installation this coming Saturday.  Cheers!
