Easily amused

I have been told in the past that I see differently. And most of the time, I know I do. Most of the time I have a good sense of humor. And sometimes, well, my humor is just different. Some people get it, some people don't. This post is kind one of those "you get my humor in how I sometimes see things or you don't".
 
This triptych consists of photos that I took in the last two days. The photo on the left is a plastic scare tactic owl wired above a door at the Appleton Mills. The unique architure of the middle photo can be found on the Greek Orthodox Church (along with it's signature 3 gold domes). But it wasn't until I took the last pic of the famous Owl Diner that I realized that I could have a little fun with them.
 
Yes, I am easily amused but I am also fascinated with the history of Lowell. So I would like to mention the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church was built in 1906 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The church was the first built for a Greek Orthodox congregation in the United States.

The Owl Diner is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places (under Monarch Diner). A short history and a recent review of the diner can be found here.

And here is an interesting Google timeline of the Appleton Mills history.

It's all good...
