1st Runner Up-January Theme Day Favorite

I like this photo as much as the one I posted here for January Theme Day, but the Paul Manship statue won out. I like this one because it accurately depicts one aspect of the Mississippi River, which I love.

ONE MORE DAY! We fly away to Mazatlan, Mexico Saturday afternoon. There's been some confusion about internet in our condo so I may not be able to use it right away. If not, I'll try to find a cybercafe, which is not the most efficient way to go, but I can't let down the DPB'ers So...check back often to see when I begin posting again. Remember, though, I'll be posting under my Mazatlan blog!

  7. yes I like this very much too. What fish are caught in the great Mississippi. I believe I have read about pollution but perhaps that's not so?

    See you in Mexico!

  12. Oh I am so sorry. On the portal I thought this was a woman. And when I got here I thought, gosh is she ugly, but quickly realized she is a he and that makes some difference. LOL

    You keep us posted. Think of us sweltering here in the sub-zero tropics while you are sipping brandy flying over the countryside.

    Think of us.
