The Country Christmas Craft Show, located behind
J&B Drug, is open again this year. You can find all kinds of unique
gifts for every member of your family there. There is even a selection
of my wildlife photography for sale.
For all of the dire predictions for heavy snowfall
last week (including mine), there was only about three inches that fell
in the holler last Wednesday, lightly
house with practically none on the road.
The snow did make the holler look festive; almost
like living inside of a snow-globe. Every tree had snow on each limb.
More birds came to our feeders during the days of snow, and I had to
refill both feeders by Friday.
One thing I have noticed over the last few years is
that the opening day of deer season no longer sounds like the beginning
of a war. Not that long ago, it seems, I remember hearing gun-fire on
opening day every few minutes, even
though some were from far away. Now, the shots are down to just a few
Pigeons in Grantsville are now looking for a new
place to roost. The old Western Auto building was home to dozens of the
birds that are still flying around the area, seemingly confused, trying
to figure out how a building of that size could simply disappear.
I don’t think it will take them long to completely
take over the old Rainbow Hotel. Many windows are missing on that
structure and it will most likely collapse before too many more winters
pass. I suppose there are those who hope it collapses at night, with all
of the pigeons inside.
