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.

Flutter Byes


























      Since moving into my current house I have been planting flowers that attract butterflys.
                     I finally managed to get a decent photo of one of the butterflys.

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.

Mural Wall





Today you get a two-fer.  Caught a young man, with his spray can, painting this mural of St. Louis on the wall of the combination thrift store and fireworks stand in Pacific, Missouri.  It took two shots to get the entire scene.
