Saturday Sidewalks

Here are a few additions to the cement archives from my morning walk:

What's curious is these letters are much smaller than normal. They are in the old-fashioned typeface, but in a newer ramp at 32nd Ave.

I have walked over this name on 32nd Ave. at least fifty times but never noticed the extra "I" in "Kirkham" until today:

I like how someone was cognizant of the fact that the "nd" "st" should be small letters, and attempted to have them make more sense by superscripting them.

Merry Chirstmas

For as long as I can remember, back to the early 1990's, this house has at 34th & Quintara has been elaborately decorated for Christmas.

It's a tradition of mine, no matter where I live in the area to drive by at least one evening to enjoy the lights. But there's a lot see in the daytime, too.

We've been by twice so far after a Christmas events this year. It was raining both times which made for some lovely reflections.

Wisely, the Holy Family is up high, keeping the Baby Jesus safe from naughty tricksters.

I've spoken to the home owners a few times. They have the lights on timers.

Keep your eye on this house. It gets decorated for many other holidays as well.
