Views of the Neighborhood – The Best of 2021

Since we are coming to a close in 2021, I thought it would be fun to capture some of the past Views of the Neighborhood by giving a sample of some of the best subject views.  We don’t have a catered event, but I’m sure you can remember some of the best menus. We won’t need to get on the bus since we have already gone there. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.

The most Holiday laughs

Cutest Holiday topper.

Best Axis Deer shot.

Best Snow (January 2021)

I hope you enjoyed the tour, and I wish you a great week.

  4. Biggest Balls always gets a laugh. If we had 5 guys to plant our tree, then, just maybe they would have had to replace it the next season, just sayin’. Nice looking golf course, do you play? I’ll go with the French toast and Bob Seger. Have a great week, John.

    1. Thank you, Steve. I do not play golf. I tried many years ago and am one of those people who should never play.

    1. Yes they were. They decided to give the new turf a run for its money. It is one of my favorite photos of them.

    Wonderful review of the year, John. It’s amazing that we’re at this time-marker, too often we’ve thought it would never arrive. New year, new hopes, new dreams — let’s all pray it is so. 🎇🎆🎇

    You’ve got the best neighborhood, John. I like that your folks at least put the computer chair next to the garbage. People in our neck of the woods leave out random furniture on the street for a week. When did that become okay to do? I must have missed the memo.

    1. We can only put out stuff one day a week. Our municipal system picks up anything. Most don’t, so folks are hoping someone will come by with a pick-up and take it away. The one one man’s trash is another’s treasure theory. 😁
