Whizzing By a Yard Full of Lights Near Galion Ohio

Just south of  Galion Ohio.  We were on our way back from Thanksgiving at the Farm.

I was the passenger with my camera at the ready.  James was able to tell me when we were getting close.

Although Laura slowed down, she couldn’t stop.

Not really possible to get a good night photo while driving by this front yard filled with colorful

Christmas lights.

Want to see a better photo of the display? here is a good one in this article in the Galion Inquirer

Nowhere to stop or drive around a block. It was a two lane highway/road.  I pressed the shutter as fast as I could.

You get the idea and can appreciate all the effort this family went to decorating.  WOW. Turns out they have been doing this for twenty years. After reading the article I see they welcome people to drive in through the lighted arches and turn around in front of their garage.  We didn’t realize it at the time we whizzed by.  Maybe there will be another opportunity.

It was something to see, even if the lights went by in a flash. Like an unresolved three D image.

The town has decorated for Halloween and Veterans Day.

Just a few little things

Just a few little things. Making the season bright. Getting in the Spirit and counteracting the early darkness with festive lights and decorations.

How about the Santa on the lighted canopy over the front steps? Thank goodness I had a red light at the Edgetown intersection.

There Were Years When My Decorations Stayed Up

There were years when my Christmas decorations stayed up in my front hall for months. The straw roofed manger on the dining room mantle ALL year with the olive wood figurines – the garland hung passed Epiphany, passed Chinese New Year, passed Groundhog’s, passed Valentine’s. Don’t think I ever added Easter eggs to the fake evergreen boughs in my front hallway, though.

So when I drove by this today (February 6th) I was reminded of my leaving holiday decor up long after the Christmas season.

Pink Elephant on a Lawn

Saw this pink elephant all lit up on a lawn as I drove the grandkids home from swimming practice. I drove around the block to try to get s better photo on the phone and the kids groaned. I thought it was blogworthy.

Anchoring the Snowman on the Rooftop 

My daughter Laura spotted this scene. We’re in Rockford, Illinois.

I was driving. 

Pulled into the parking lot and she rolled down her window, took a few shots for the blog today!
