lovely aftermath

There were two rainbows the other day when there was a lull in the rain.....You can just barely see the second one in this picture above---I took this just before the rain began, once again.....Here below....another shot of the rainbows...... You can see how dark it still was, looking East that day.....Yesterday, Christmas Day, it was a beautiful day that became more and more overcast as the day wore on.....When Garrett P. picked me up to take me to their house, it felt and looked like it was going to rain at any moment....And of course, it did, about an twenty minutes after I arrived there---It Poured, once again. But Christmas at Betty's was wonderful....And here below, a picture of Karen Culliver Parks with 'Buddy' and the tree.... More on Christmas Day in a later post.....I need to organize my pictures and also get ready for my New Years Eve Celebration.....I thought it might be fun to show you a photograph I took of Daddy Joe and Olga which they ended up using on their Christmas Card that year....It was taken in 1978 in front of my garage door.....It is such a cute picture, isn't it? So, as I get ready for my little New Years gathering, I hope you all had as wonderful a Christmas as I did......Being at The Parks' is always filled with great fun, lots of laughs, delicious food, and the loving embrace of long time friendships....As Betty said, it is just 'the family' this year....And soon, there will be......


More To Come.........

So glad you were able to get out and spend the holiday with a dear friend. How different those rainbowed skies to our snow filled ones. Thank goodness you aren't marooned by the weather. The weather we have been having is not for we oldies.

I'm glad you had a nice time. I've been worried about you on that hillside with all the rain. I wondered whether you'd have to change your blog name to "Here in The Valley."

Cheers.

I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas :)

We've had a little rain today, but we've still got the snow and we're due some more apparently.

All the best for the new year! :)

Well rain is so common here in the UK but recently all we'd had is snow!

That photo is very cute too.

I'm really delighted you had a lovely time on Christmas day and can't wait to see the photos! And videos too??

Beautiful double rainbow! Been thinking of you during all this CA rain and am so glad you were able to get out to have celebrations with your 'bestest' friend! Merry-just-a-few-days-late Christmas...may you have a wonderful New Year's Eve. Thanks for showing that pic of Papa Joe and Olga, I am so enjoying reading about his (and therefore, your, life). Looking forward to 'visiting' you through 2011..and beyond!

P.S. It SNOWED here in Mississippi on Christmas morning...what an amazing surprise!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Naomi! My company has all left and I am finally able to take a few hours to read all of my favorite people!! I am still enjoying looking at the photos of all of the sculptures that were in your father's garden!

Beautiful rainbow and I hope that is a sign of things to come, my friend.

I'm happy to hear you were able to celebrate the holiday with your dear friend, Betty, and her family.

Your daddy and Olga look so cute and romantic in that photo. The black and white makes it more endearing.

I hope you enjoy your New Years get together and that 2011 brings you much love, peace and joy with a clean bill of health!

Cheers, Chica!! xo
