We have been spending Thanksgiving weekend with my parents at their home in California’s Central Valley. These are a few of the things I saw:
Palm trees. Residing in northern California as we do, we tend to forget that tropical foliage predominates in the more southerly parts of our fair state. With the freezing temperatures we have experienced the last few nights, I have no idea how the palms survive.
Donkeys. Not something we see in Sacramento. Unfortunately, Eeyore’s companion was camera shy and took off as soon as I pointed a camera in his direction.
My little niece. She recently turned one year old. I don’t see her very often and can’t believe how big she’s grown already.
A homeless man in a wheelchair begging for change in front of a McDonald’s in Fresno. It was freezing out, so we bought him some hot food and coffee. There, but for the grace of God, go I.
My mother’s Siamese cat. Taffy is 18 years old and spoiled rotten. She refuses to eat cat food anymore and gets chicken, turkey and fish. I think the poor thing has a cold, as she was coughing last night.
Macaroni Grill. Pasta for dinner! Garlic, mushrooms, who could as for more?
The full moon, playing hide and seek with the clouds.
Here’s hoping all of you are enjoying the holiday weekend!
