Christmas is Coming!

Well, the season is here!  I know; I know…it’s the 21st when it’s official.  But, it’s the 1st at 3:23AM and I am getting ready to settle down.  I took a picture tonight, the first night shot with my new (older) phone.  It’s an HTC1 and I really like it.  Took awhile to figure out how to get the pics off it and on my pc for here, but it’s done.

Anyway, Christmas is one of my very favorite times of the year and Middletown, small that it is, has its own way of showing we are getting ready for Santa…

I know, it’s not a lot.  The streets have lights and all, but this just caught my eye when I was driving home about 9:15pm or so.  I will figure out how to take better shots, but for no flash, I thought this was a decent night shot.  Anyway, this all takes me back to my young days (man, those were a long time ago).  People are happier.  I enjoy going to the stores in town more.

Some of us, don’t care, however:

See?  I don’t think she appreciates Christmas at all.

Happy beginning of the season,

“The Third Switch”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Three little switches were on the contraption. Keith looked at the first one and flipped it.

All of the lights went out in the house. He flipped it back – nothing.

When he flipped the second switch, the lights came back on.

Smiling, he flipped the third switch and waited; nothing happened.

Scratching his head, he walked back upstairs to his wife staring out the window.

“What’s the matter, Sweetheart?”

She simply stared and began to shiver. Keith followed her finger pointing toward the large window.

New York City was dark.

Keith began to worry, perhaps, it was not just NYC.

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
