Winter might be on its way for real. I think the weather is getting dangerously close to being done messing around with us. So this week we have some pictures, mainly from the businesses I went to visit in the cold. I would've dropped by more and done more pictures, but it was just an unpleasant, wet day and I was only bound to ruin my small, portable electronic arsenal.
Good Advice to Last a Lifetime

It's nearly Thanksgiving! Is everyone excited? Whether you're staying at home or travelling around, and every eater that day alone to surrounded by many be thankful for what they have. Of course, if there happens to be a giant turkey in front of you... Hey, I'm just saying... It wouldn't hurt to start eating it until neither you nor anyone around you could move, and then have some pie. Who could neglect the pie on Thanksgiving?
How do you celebrate? There's a lot of ways people do it depending on where they come from. My family tends to have two Thanksgivings, one for my mom's side of the family and the other for my dad's. The numbers mix over sometimes, but it guarantees two fantastic meals. We cook the one for my mom's side, so that means it will be a day of preparation before it in a dash to make sure everything is ready at just the right time. It will be cold this year, so we can look forward to having feasts at the ready.
This week, I saw an honest to God tumbleweed in Louisville on the streets.
The Three Stooges seemed affected by the greyness of the day. See how they stare pensively out over the day from behind the sign of a diner which sadly did not stay in business.
A moment after this shot was taken, Larry gota pie to the face.
CM Primitives had out their Christmas display. I stopped in there, and it smelled like warm maple syrup.
And then for my last stop, I went into Main Street Jewelers. This was a bad strategic move for me, because the store was packed wall to wall with the most absolutely beautiful shiny things I've ever beheld. They let me wander around the store like a bull in a china shop, trying to take pictures of all the pretty things around.
Inside a glass bowl...
Stained Glass flowers
Jewelry! Shiny and lovely.
This was a great little model of a covered wagon with a bucking cowboy.
They had out their Christmas wares as well. This photo was run through the Fresco filter of Photoshop.
And here we see this little fellow... Why is he not on a shiny base with other shiny things? I took him home. He was irresistable, and just plain adorable. His head opens up into a magnetic compartment. I couldn't resist his allure, so I bought him. That's what happens when you go into a place full of many splenderous objects. If you haven't stopped in lately, just have a look.
