I generally don’t finish anything i start, i get bored easily, so I’m impressed with myself, that I’ve kept it up and made some new friends along the way. a big Thanks to Everyone who has stopped by over 2015.(since my existence ) and Happy New Year !
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,200 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 37 trips to carry that many people.
I know I haven’t been on in a while, with getting ready for Christmas, and of course it wouldn’t be a holiday..unless i got sick…. par for the course. and as always I waited to long to see the Dr. . the antibiotic helped a lot..double doses. and pain meds too. I’m healing.. happy to report.
I received the most awesome present for my wonderful husband,
fujifilm X-T10 ive only been wanting a mirrorless camera for over a year, and i was torn between this and the Olympus. i must say im very happy with this camera.
well that’s about it, i didn’t do much in the way of family photos, mostly because no one that was here likes their picture taken, and not feeling well, i just wasnt up to the “discussion”
if you stopped by.. thank you, and i hope you had a very merry..what ever you celebrate. and please have a wonderful and safe new year.
So..My Birthday is over but in my mind im still celebrating:), and nothing is getting done to prepare for Christmas..but that’s ok… because pretty soon, ill be packing for Florida! yes my mind is a million miles away..and pretty soon my body will be too 🙂 for awhile.
So while we were in Niagara on the Lake for those of you who don’t know.. its the Major Theater Festival site.
so id like to show you the town, we dont usually go out to much at nite..only because we are up at 4:30 am.. Monday through Friday. but .. now that it gets dark so early..i actually got to take a few “shots in the Dark”
a few door ways, and yes another coffee stop:)
had to go home(back to our Inn,) we were freezing
any way, we came back for the Christmas lighting, and Santa, dinner and drinks
well we have never seen so many people…ever!!! there was no room to move, i had to leave fast.. b4 a panic attack set in. of course i saw Santa long b4 the crowds did. believe me when i tell you it was a mass of humanity. so this was our stroll around the main street of Niagara on the lake, a fantastic community. and how they all came together , and everyone bought candles .. the proceeds all went to the children school in town. $2.50 a candle. and when we did leave we gave our candles to a young family.. who probably couldn’t afford to spend an extra 5 dollars (Canadian) .
next time, ill introduce the faces i captured:) and if you did stop by.. thank you, and have a wonderful week end.
as you get older ,you learn to buy your own things.. well i do anyway, so on my birthday, for the last few years, my Husband takes me on an over-niter somewhere, since it is winter, and the last few winters have been agonizingly brutal, we tend to stay inside New York State, but this years its been mild, so we went on a 2 hour jaunt ..over the border to Ontario Canada . to Niagara on The Lake
Niagara played a central role in the War of 1812. Niagara was taken in the Battle of Fort George by American forces after a two-day bombardment by cannons from Fort Niagara and the American Fleet, followed by a fierce battle. Later in the war the town was razed and burnt to the ground by American soldiers as they withdrew to Fort Niagara. Undaunted by this setback, often referred to as the “burning of Newark,” the citizens rebuilt the town after the war, with the residential quarter around Queen Street and toward King Street, where the new Court House was rebuilt using material from the firing range of the cannons at Fort Niagara. In 1859 the town built its first public school, Niagara Public School.
there’s so much History here, here’s just a taste. the reason we go, (and avoid Niagara falls) its so quaint, and NOT glitzy,people are friendly. so here we go, the day we arrived, and as i usually not out at nite.. i was this past week end:0 , so ill be back. and if you stopped by.. thanks, and have a wonderful day
