From time to time, I hope to display a variety of miscellaneous pictures -
Some old, some new,
Maybe one will be of you!

Lights (Please scroll down)
Christmas Lights. A nearby family goes all out at Christmas time. About one acre of yard, including the house, is festooned with seasonal decorations. The trees in the yard hold various lights and motifs as well as Santa sleighs, airplanes, helicopters, all alight at night. Unfortunately, my camera is not capable enough to capture the night scenes and do them justice. The following five pictures were taken during the 2001 Christmas season.
Now that summer is here, why not think about the cooler (or cold, depending on where you are) days of December, and enjoy anew some of the Christmas Spirit?
Part of the house can be seen in the above picture. The smaller house to the right houses many, many ones and twos of a kind dolls and decorations - many of them animated.
Many life sized (to children) lighted decorations in the shape of tractors, autos, trains, engines, and such decorate the yard. During the day, it appears to be a hodge-podge of somewhat unintelligible shapes but when the lights come on at night - they are readily definable!
What about a horse-drawn carriage passing a caroling singer while the flag waves (from a treetop, of course) with stars and other lights decorating the tree branches? Some tree tops in the background only show a vaguely defined outline.
This is the back and side of the little house that contains so many decorative objects, as mentioned with the first picture. Again, a decorated tree can be seen at the right of the picture, while other items appear in the left portion.
A different view of the house can be seen above, along with two trees, one on the right and one on the left, all decorated with various lights. A replica of Santa's sleigh, all lighted, can be seen in the right hand part of the picture in front of a decorated tree.
It is sincerely hoped this gentleman and his wife will be able to repeat these and the many other scenes in his yard next Christmas!

Flood Events and Facts
March 30, 2003 - just starting to snow . . .
The flakes came down, in search of the ground
a bid to become immortal
And winter was hung, with verses unsung
but found this wayward portal
A lingering chance, to skitter and dance
on their way to the nether land
To stave off the day, of flowers in May
a product of Nature's hand
So tickle my nose, and a picture pose
to live in memory
When Springtime is near, no matter the year
my inner eye will see.
