Christmas Parade in Mountain Grove... it was cold, but the
wind had died down, and it was a delightful collection of
kids, Santa, lights, big trucks & tractors, and a lot of fun.
They even drove a brand new school bus around the square,
and it was big and beautiful!
Jamie is in there somewhere, playing the flute.
The News-Journal building in the background is an old bank building,
where I worked for 12 years. That was my introduction to computers.
And the training to look for things to photograph...
I had good teachers... Lafe, Jackie, Orin, Sandy, and David who was a HS student!
The gal with the green hat riding the 20-something year-old bay is
one of my bowling partners. She was worried about him reacting to the
environment. He was calm, unlike the black that followed Santa
straddling two horses!
The McCune sisters warmed up the crowd before the parade
began. They are wonderful singers!
Found these ice crystals in some grass near Austin Lake, a
local Conservation Department fishing area.
