I’m really excited about today’s Floral Friday post on bluejayblog for at least a couple of reasons. This is the first time I’ve decided to bring another person’s talent into play in this venue. More importantly, the man who is today’s contributor is an amazing friend of mine.
My pal Tommy lives in a medium sized city in northeastern Louisiana where he shares his home with his canine friends. He spends his days using his many skills for the state of Louisiana. He has an active social life and is quite knowledgeable about the local cultural scene in his city and area. Tommy is also a very avid sports fan. At present, he’s pumped up about his Louisiana Tech Bulldogs football squad. He risked a case of pneumonia sitting in a cold rainshower to watch the Bulldogs wrap up the WAC Championship for their recent appearance in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, California.
Tommy is quite a special pal. We go back a few decades. We started our correspondence with one another when pen pals only wrote one another with pen and paper. Our missives arrived via the U.S. Mail. Somehow, we just plain hit it off. Eventually, we both obtained computers and Internet Providers to enable us to visit via email. Each week, I can count on receiving an email update from Tommy about all the activities and antics of life in his world. The crazy thing is this: We have never met face to face.
When Tommy told me about retrieving all his Christmas items out of storage, I hoped that he would agree to post his photos on bluejayblog. I want to thank him for generously sending along some photos of his incredible displays of collectables and treasures. I don’t know where and how he found the time for all of this.
My mantle has a nativity display. Hopefully, you can see in the foreground the various animals that I use in the display.
My Christmas tree has unusual ornaments which I prefer. Most of the ornaments reflect my love of animals, particularly dogs. There are other animals: cats, bear, lobster, fox, moose, I think. Some of the ornaments are from places where I have traveled.
The Blue Jay of Happiness is completely bowled over by these images. The photos are clickable so you can save them and see through your photo viewing program. Please respect Tommy’s work and do not use these for commercial purposes. All rights reserved.
