More Holiday Cheer

This is still from the Small's display on Lincoln Road in Orange.  They didn't win that night but they put up a nice display.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Fa la la la

Well I'm back!  That oil and filter change took much longer than expected. (-8.  So I'm just going to begin to post random shots around Orange.  This lovely display is from the Small's on Lincoln Road.  They were featured on that new show "The Great Light Fight".  Nice display coordinated with music if you tuned into 98.1.   Fab!

U is for Umbrella

I love this shot of the colorful umbrella against a blue sky and the ancient building.  It was taken at the ancient seaport of Akko in Israel.

Charter Oak

OK, so December is probably not the time to feature a little story on a tree because you really just get the trunk and branches but in front of the parsonage (shown above) is one of the direct decedent seedlings from the original Charter Oak in Hartford.  YAY Orange, we kept ours alive.

A few months ago a man was out in front and he asked if he could step on the property to take a photo. Well we got to talking and he is doing a project on whatever happened to all of the seedlings.  If you go to You Tube and search for Charter Oak Project you'll see his work.  Although, I don't see Orange there yet.

Anyway, if you want to learn more about Connecticut History click HERE.

Hook 'um Horns

Texas Longhorns
Feeling like I need to take a break from the Texas photos but I've still got a lot to show.  Lucky YOU.  I need to get out and get some new Orange material but I've had very little time what with work being so busy now.

CDP - Theme Day - Looking Out

I realize that this is a repost from a while back but it is SO fitting for the theme, 'looking out'.  This was taken up in Marblehead, MA.  For other theme day delights click here.
