We visited Danny's Family in Cleveland 
for Thanksgiving.
The 20-foot-tall outdoor chandelier was officially declared by Guinness as the largest in the world.

Made of more than 4,200 crystals and illuminated at night, the 20-foot tall crystalline (actually acrylic resin, not glass) structure is suspended from steel trusses some 44 feet off the ground at the corner of 
E. 14th Street and Euclid Avenue.

This is the view Danny's sister has 
from her office window. 

Lunch Time

Danny's Sister and BIL. 

How do you spell Ohio when you only have 
two O-H-I-O guys ??? 
Best Buds from wayyyy back when!

Here in the Southeast, at least in Atlanta, 
we have skipped Fall and went straight into Winter. 
I brought the orchids inside the beginning of October when the night-time temps dipped below 50 degrees.
They actually do better inside during the winter,
 than outside in the tree for the summer. 
Winter is expected to be another cold one in the eastern half 
to two-thirds of the nation.
The Old Farmer's Almanac Weather Map 
for this Winter shows Georgia as cold and dry!
Friday night, Danny and I brought in the rest 
of the plants that were hanging 
in the tree and on the porch. 
We had some snow flakes on Saturday morning before daylight - 
Augie had to go out. 
This morning - the roof had heavy frost, as did my Knock-Out Roses.  
I'm ready for my winter wardrobe, 
but sure would like to have 
some autumn weather first.

At a Church nearly as old as the country itself, members of the Burkhalter Chapter, William Marsh Chapter and Sequoyah Chapter NSDAR gathered to honor and remember DAR Patriot Joel Walker 
and his family.
The original 1787 Williams Creek Church was built
on lower ground next to the creek 
with the cemetery.

It's that time of year again for Augie and Riggins! 
 Our 4th annual Splashiest end-of-summer 
event at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.
Piedmont Park has done this for 25 years! 
They close the pool to people and 
open it for the Dogs!
The proceeds benefit and maintain the 3 acre, fenced-in Piedmont Dog Park.
 Mom is teaching Riggs to fly and 
 to swim!! 
"I promise you Buddy, No more flying ------
this year!"
There were big dogs,

and little dogs.
Not so nice barking dogs, 
and jumping dogs.
Prissy Jack Russels wearing pink,
and adorable Bull Dogs wearing orange.

Old dogs vegging out. 
Dogs with Humans,

Humans with Dogs. 
See you Dogs next year!! 
On our way out-
A beautiful day to spend in the Park!
IF, you live in the Atlanta area, 
Piedmont Park has this Splish Splash every first weekend in October.
Hope to see you there!
