19. Horses and Humans (Week 19)

“He knows when you’re happy
He knows when you’re comfortable
He knows when you’re confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.”

With the anticipation of traffic problems during the grand opening weekend of our newest local mall, The Mall at University Town Center, two dozen Manatee and Sarasota Sheriff’s office deputies were on hand to patrol mall traffic.  When I saw this pair on horseback, I pulled over and asked if they would grant permission for a photograph.



They agreed to the photo and they told me that I was taking a picture of the best looking deputies on the force!




18. Holiday Spirit (Week 18)

Faithful friends who are dear to us – they gather near to us once more, …
Through the years we all will be together – if the fates allow” ~ words from “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”


A club I am in hosted an Ugly Sweater Party.  What better way to get in the holiday spirit!  To preserve anonymity, I won’t post any pictures of my friends – but the sweaters ran the gamut of Bah Humbug to festive lights!
