Wish List

Sleeping with the Fireworks

Stopped at a Hardees and found this fireworks stand next door.  What struck me was the tent in the weeds.  Several stands here have been robbed and I'm afraid that tent may not protect the inventory.

Country come to town..........

While taking a short cut accross town I happen to go down this street.  Snapped this shot from my car so it is not the best photography but, it does include four things you normally do not find in our small town, plus one hidden surprise. Blow up the shot and see if you can find them.

Cheering for the Blue Jays

      Passed this house while driving through town yesterday.  Given the decorations and the street full of parked cars I figured they were having a graduation party for one of the members of the Blue Jays, the local highschool sports teams.  With all the pom-poms it could have also been a cheerleader.
