Photo’s from last weeks Market and Today’s feast

So… I went to the nut cracker market and I wanted to post the photo’s I took. I took a photo of the slow fella that was minding the condiments. He sure does smile nice:

Doesn’t he look proud? He was really proud that I wanted to take his picture. He stood up straight and smiled. I felt like God put me right there at that moment. Right before I asked him, he looks so down and sad and a little wilty, which is the main reason why I asked him if I could take his picture (tho I didn’t know he was slow at the time).

Oh, and here was a bunch of people, all gettin’ some grub:

Then, there was the old Wells Fargo stage coach, decked to the hilt. They had one side decorated one way and the other side decorated another way.

Today was our “Thank God that darned 8.3 is almost out the door, lets celebrate” potluck. Since I didn’t remember I had my camera until after we’d all eaten, I decided to just take pictures of the food.

That above is the potato soup I made… I sent it home with a colleague because he has 3 kids and they can chow down.

    Good times and good food bring wonderful memories don’t you think?  I’m having a difficult time taking pictures of much anything right now.  I just can’t seem to get with it but I’m sure that will pass, it always does.  It’s a treat to have some pictures with a blog!

      Hi Fizz:
           Loved your pictures hun and I know you are a sweet person for making that young guys day by taking his picture. Did you show him the picture afterwards? He has the sweetest smile. Oh man that food looks good, I love potlucks as you can get to sample food you don’t make yourself. Food you cook yourself just doesn’t taste the same. Hope you have a great day and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Take care and God bless…………….Rusty  ((HUGS))

    Well, it looks like your coworkers know how to do a potluck.  Back where I used to work, they all tried to see how little they could contribute, but were always right at the front of the line when it was time to eat.
     
    Really sweet that you brightened that man’s day by taking his picture.  He looks very proud.
