Decorations and Doorways

A downtown shop window (the Golden Finch, a framer and gallery), prettily decorated for Christmas. Santa is watching! Alas, though, the Wildcats lost their bid for the state football championship.

Friday afternoon about 1:30 by the railroad tracks, a long line of clouds bringing snow. But for now, the sun is peeking out and there is some blue sky overhead. Its getting cold.

More singing

Some members of the Three Rivers High School chorus, along with their director, Mr. Joel Moore, caroling through the downtown stores. They sang very well, and it was a real treat.

Singing outdoors

Christmas caroling by the downtown Christmas tree. The little children sang louder than the adults!

(Addendum: River Country Journal ran a 1 minute audio of the, uhm, music... thanks Bruce! Links from here: “Christmas Around Town” to continue )

December's theme is "Waiting". Dogs are good at waiting. They wait for us to come home, wait for their walk, wait for someone to come paddle the boat.

Goggle Dog

Walking along the street was this serious pit bull with his owner. No, I don't know why he's wearing goggles. And don't pet him... according to his backpack sign, he's working!

(The dog looks quite a bit like the famous "Nipper".)

Weenie King

The Weenie King, a local institution, brings his cart with its fine sausages and condiments to all fairs and city events, including the "Christmas Around Town". He can also be found outside the public library all summer long. The Weenie King makes me truly regret that I don't like hot dogs.
