Five Photos for Friday, Mid-December

1. My sister visited for a couple of days and yesterday we met Lynn for lunch. This was a lovely birthday treat!

2. Here's Signal Knob, ready for linking with Skywatch Friday and Orange We Glad It's Friday

3. This sweetie posed on my "patio peach," against a Friday Green background.

4. Dupont is going to pay $50 million (USD) for contaminating the Shenandoah River. This happened back in the 1930s and 40s (!) and there are still signs posted warning of contaminated fish in the South Fork. Mercury contamination spread for over 100 miles and has not washed away because the toxic metal sunk into the silt, and even onto surrounding land when the river flooded.

5. This little town is all decked out for the holidays! It's not a real town, of course, it's a little village in a shop. 

My Town Shoot Out


  1. Merry Christmas, Dupont should pay more and keep paying each year the contamination is there.

  2. Great photo of you, your sister and friend. And happy birthday! (forgot to say that on your last post!)

  3. I would love to have a little village like that in my house someday :)

    Have a Merry Christmas :)

  4. What lovely moments from your week - even 4 which isn't good, but it is good it is being dealt with. The village is very pretty isn't it. Happy Christmas!

  5. Loved the village, a real delight to see.

  6. 50 million for a company like that is not enough punishment.

    Signal Knob in that light is stunning!

  7. Sweet picture of the 3 of you! I didn't know that about the river..nice they are going to pay but what damage it has all caused 😢 love the little Christmas village! Have a great week Linda and thank you for linking with Willy nilly!

  8. Lovely photo of the three of you. I like your other shots too.

  9. A beautiful post, Linda!
