G'ma Alice

Image
**** G'ma Alice While we were in Minnesota, we celebrated life with my grandma who turned 92 on the Dec 20. She has always full of life and enjoys a glass of wine. A couple of years ago she tripped while line dancing (those orthopedic shoes will get you every time) and broke her hip. My mother was quite worried about her because all the fun seemed to go out of her, but as you can see, she is back to her happy self. ***** Photo by TOM *****

Cube Decorations

***** We had a cube decorating contest the week I was out of the office. I also missed a cookie swap, the department breakfast, and the after-hours cocktail party. I still managed to get a few pictures. Tomorrow I am on the hunt for more.  *****

Joy

Image
***** I don't know the sculptor or the name of the piece, but it should be 'Joy'. You can probably tell by the snow that this is not Alabama or Georgia, but she makes me feel warm inside. I do love the scarf that someone wrapped around her neck.  *****

Will You Marry Me

***** Erin said "Yes". ***** This is my contribution for signs, signs. ***** *****

Jolly Ole Elf

Image
***** I am pretty sure that he is the 'real deal'. *****

And They're Off

Image
***** On our recent flight to Minnesota an interesting thing happened...we arrived at MSP about 20 minutes early. I tell you, I was dumbfounded. We had to sit on the taxi-way until the gate was cleared watching the Delta flights heading for destinations unknown.  ***** One thing that always amazes me is that you cannot just pull into another gate if they are empty. At the Humphrey terminal, they have about 4 or 5 gates. They were all empty, except the one we were supposed to use to deplane. So instead we wait.  *****

Prepping for Departure

***** And it's not in GA or AL. ***** As you can see, I am still out of town and will post again/visit as I have time. Keep Cool : ) *****

New Retaining Wall

Image
***** Construction on the river walk continues with the building of this retaining wall.  ***** We will be out of pocket for the next week. I will try to post a photo each day, but I may not get around to visit.  *****
