The tree that sits in the middle of Main Street in town every year has taken it’s rightful place. It came from a farmstead just about 5 miles west of our home. From a farm family with kids and dogs, a barn and cows to milk a long time ago.
Now it has a star on top and is decorated with red and green ornaments.
The Downtown Business Association has a tree lighting ceremony on the Friday night after Thanksgiving, We have never been there for the lighting, but hear it is a nice gathering.
One night I may take my tripod to town and see if I can get a photo of the tree at night. Usually once we are home for the night we stay in…old farts ya know.
I know that we should shop more in downtown but they have nothing we need. One tourist trap after another, some open and some closed for the winter. I went into Ben Franklin but they didn’t have the paper I needed. I would have bought it there if it had been available. Far Guy walked down the street to another store and it was closed. So much for small town shopping. I bought some boxes at the UPS store!
