Friday Randoms include a Photo Show.

1. Black and White Weekend: Oak leaves in a chain link fence.

2. Skywatch: Yesterday's sunset.

3. Purple pansies for Floral Friday and Friday Bliss.

We seem to be having an early spring. I don't recall one coming this early. Well, our weather could still go back to winter. I've seen snow in April here in Virginia.

4. Here's a quote from famous writer Earl Nightingale:
"Success is not the result of making money."

5. I know I've posted a picture of Strasburg's Town Hall before. This one is to introduce a photography show that's there right now. The rest of today's pictures are from the reception this week for the show's opening. 

I have three photos in the show. Here I'm posing with two of them. On the left is the ice cream shop.  On the right is a railroad bridge over the Shenandoah River. I'm posting the third one below.

Several candidates for Mayor of Strasburg dropped by the show. The young lady in today's final picture is candidate Brandy Bois.

The current mayor became controversial when he had an accident while driving under the influence. I'm not going to recount the story except that when I say that I'm going to run into the library, I don't mean it literally!


Have a good weekend and stay well!
