Couple of Christmas Fun Pics
You may have heard of Ball canning jars. They come from my hometown, Muncie, IN. The Ball Brothers came here during a gas boom and basically built this city on canning jars and such. So a lot of stuff in Muncie is named after the Ball family, including Ball State University, which you may have heard out of the mouth of David Letterman.
Well, the 5 brothers are no longer with us, and I don't know where the descendants are, but their compound of 5 mansions still exists and is used by the foundation for various events. Last night I went to the Enchanted Luminaria walk, complete with horse-drawn carriages, open fires, music in the air, kettle corn, live drama, photo ops, and touring a couple of the mansions resplendent in Ball fashion of yore. Gorgeous.
And here I am in a gift shop with Gingy. You know I have a thing for gingerbread.
And here are Jorge, my boss Jeff and his wife and I in a photo op thingy. We just happened to run into them there. Love them both, but don't tell Jeffe I said that.
And here I am with the big ol' Oneighty Christmas tree, which I decorated this year. I'm pretty proud because singing, decorating and cooking, typically female gifts, are not so much mine. This one turned out pretty good, I expect, because I didn't have to put it in an oven. Yay me. Anyway, these are just photos of some fun stuff. How is your weekend going?
