It’s Christmas Time in the City – Friday December 8, 2006


I had something fun to look forward to after my long day of work yesterday.  Not that Thursday evenings aren’t usually fun or anything.   As soon as 5:00 rolled around, Norma and I  headed to the rest room and hastily got in some better smelling clothes and put our better looking faces (and breathe) on, then waited on the street for the rest of the crew to come in and pick us up for an evening of enjoying the sites and sounds of the city at Christmas.

Duncan Donuts to warm us up and prepare us for the long walk ahead of us.

IMG_3592 Denise and I, cheesin in anticipation of more fun stuff in this cold weather.  Note:  I’m wearing a jacket because Norma didn’t have a coat and I had both (wore the jacket to work and Rose brought the coat for me).  It’s not that I think it’s cool to wear jackets in 20degree weather.

IMG_3608 Are we cool or what.  Standing in the middle of the fountains (which obviously are drained for the winter).

    Hey girl! Isn’t it about time you came to see your relatives in the west?:goodjob:    Lovely pics, by the way. Hope you continue to enjoy your city life! I am a bit too countrified to even shop in the city. I do tolerate it tho!
