Triangulation on peak; under changing skies

April is a month of squares, hosted by Becky. The theme is ‘top’, and all photos must be squared.

Thanks so much, Becky, for hosting this fun challenge. 🙂

Photo is of a worn brown cowboy boot. It has a red bandana tied around it, and a bouquet of sunflowers poking out of the top of the boot.

These were table decorations at a yearly event my dad and I would always attend. It was called the Mayor’s Cornbread & Beans Lunch, and all proceeds from tickets went to the support of our local Hospice.

The food was good, and there was live music from different bands and singers. The mayors from all the towns around here were there, along with local celebrities. They would mingle and talk with everyone at the tables. There was also drawings for door prizes.

WEEKLY WEATHER – SPRING

Weekly Weather: Spring

***

This week’s topic is spring.

In these photos, we have some tulips that I’d planted a long time ago. There is our dog, Bud, who has since passed on. Also, we have Paolo, our cat. At the moment he is sitting here in front of me on my desk. Last is the cowboy boot with flowers. This was at an annual luncheon, held here every March. It was named the “Mayor’s Beans and Cornbread Lunch”, and was sponsored by the local Hospice organization. Ticket sales and donations all went to Hospice to benefit those who needed this very worthy service. I went every year with my dad, and it was lots of fun. The food was good (beans, cornbread, smoked sausages, and either cake or cobbler). The mayors of all the towns/cities in the area attended. We got to meet them. Local celebrities like TV newscaster personalities, and the mayors did all the serving of the meal to the public. Another fun portion was a live band playing music up on the stage, during the whole time of the luncheon. There were door prizes, too, but we never did win anything. A silent auction was held, also. The boot with flowers and balloons (not pictured) were table decorations. This always reminds me of Spring! 🙂
