We arrived at Christmas on the Square a little before noon today. It was much larger than it has been in past years with several streets of booths. The crowds were also much larger.
I enjoyed wandering around, but didn’t find a single thing that I wanted to buy — except for some gorgeous little puppies. I think they said they were a mixture of American and English bulldog. I have been looking for another dog as a companion for Sunny, but I doubt Sunny would be thrilled with a bulldog. And another dog, particularly a 50 pound bulldog — wouldn’t be a great choice for the 17′ Casita. So I reluctantly passed the little guys by.
There were a few booths with quality goods, but most of it was kitsch that astonished me that anyone would actually consider buying! I had hoped to feel a stirring of Christmas spirit and excitement there, but it didn’t happen.
We had dinner at Mom’s this evening. She fixed fried fish, french fries and hush puppies. Not exactly healthy, but oh, was it delicious! No one does fish better than Mom!
We plan to leave tomorrow and head south for a few days.
