Lone String of Lights on Larimer Laundromat

I had to put the car in reverse and pull over. Yes, it seemed blog worthy.  I have shot the laundromat before.  I drive by it most days. Grateful for a washer and dryer in my very own basement.  I like the smell of laundromats. Clean laundry.  You could get Chuckles in the vending machine in the one on Highland Ave.  One time I went with some friends to see a little play in a laundromat in Shadyside.  Figures made from dryer lint. I wonder who thought to drape the sting of lights on the sign.

On my way home tonight.....

    Looks like there might be an apartment above the laundromat ??? Maybe “they” put the lights on — “hey the laundry is closed, but there is still life in the building!” ???????? XOXOXOX E
