I'm toting my camera today

I have missed taking lots of pictures. It is one of my favorite hobbies but lately the weather has been so gloomy (not that I have mentioned that fact) that I couldn't find any inspiration save a few pics of the dogs and Jones. And the snow. But today I brought my camera with me to work. I want to try and get some shots of the geese that have taken up residence at our pond when I get home.

I am thinking of driving around town at lunch and snapping away. We have such a charming town here in Paducah.

There is one thing that I love living in this part of the country. Most people are so nice and helpful. Take me for instance (as I toot my own horn). The phone just rang here at work and the lady was needing to check on a TWIC card for her nephew. She had the wrong number of course, but instead of just telling her "wrong number lady" I looked online and got her the toll free number. I could tell she really appreciated it. She was calling from out of town and I figured that was the least I could do. After all, to me it is easier to be nice and helpful than rude and not give a damn.

It's just about lunchtime for me and I am hoping the weather is warmer outside than when I walked into work at 6:45am today. It was quite chilly then.

How are the folks where yall live? Are they busy busy people with no time for a stranger or do they smile at a stranger and help when they can?

I remember you posted pics of Paducah awhile back (old timey red brick buildings?) It's a lovely, small town.

We all need something different from where we live. I love the city. I love the shopping, the restaurants, the events, the choices. And in my travels I've found people to be either nice or matter where they lived.

This land offers something for everyone!

The city near where I live has been rated no 1 in manners for several years. The people here are helpful and say hello. It is a great place to live.

We have lots of busy but nice folks here. Houston really is a small town at heart (despite the 3.5 million or so that live here).
