Square Odds #3, Thursdays Trios and Doors, and Monday’s Windows

I’ve been curating odd pictures for Squares for about a month. I never have enough, but today I’m going to try to combine odd with windows, doors and trios. We will see how it goes.

Remember the only rule with squares is that you square your picture and find a connection to the theme. Odd can be a number, something strange or unique, or something curious. You might have other ideas about odd.

I Squarely Lost my Head! That’s Odd

Three Odd Thursday Trios

Thursday Doors & Monday Windows

These first doors might seem a bit odd to us today. In the 1600s-1700s they were quite normal. The first house is much more advanced than the homes in Jamestown. Yet, it was not nearly as sophisticated as most of the houses we saw there. It just happened to have three windows – a triple-dip on one photo. It’s square, a little odd in that it’s off by itself off the beaten path, and it has doors and three windows. SCORE!

The last house door seems a bit drafty. I took the picture in 2008 and I don’t remember the reason for the draftiness except possibly to show us how houses in the 1600s were constructed. We take our sturdily constructed homes for granted. I loved the old Post Office Building in Washington D.C. It just so happened that there were three doors and three windows. SCORE AGAIN!!!

    • Can you imagine living with oiled paper windows in that cold climate? No wonder so many of the first group of settlers died – about half of them the first year. Talk about a pandemic!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
