It always does my heart good to head downtown. Last week I had to pop in the court house to renew my notary for four more years. And I didn't take my camera with me, but noticed how pretty our little town looked with flags flying from the lamp posts on the side walks. So on Sunday when I went to church and then to eat with my parents I headed back down town to take a few shots.
A few years ago where the hospital where I was born used to stand ... which later became a doctor's office, then the board of education and 4-H headquarters and county extension office.... the building having become more costly to maintain was closed and torn down. What our county did to take it's place is lovely. It's a town tribute to citizens who served. And the bricks that contain gold stars are those lost in combate. It's a nice place to sit quietly when no one else is there and remember those we have lost.
But here are some nice shots from out little town.
