Verdant Forest...

...along one of the Trilogy trails.

In retrospect, I should have asked this woman what she was planning to videotape. She's facing Lake Sumter in Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages. Nothing was happening on the lake that I could see. Perhaps she was setting up for a wedding party or for some kind of special entertainment on the Boardwalk, but none of that was evident. She thus remains a mystery. Forever.

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer

There was an arts and craft show at the Tack House at the Trilogy Resort this morning. It was open to the public and offered many wonderful items for sale which I'll show in another post.

We were on our way out when I ran into this guy, all dressed up as Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. When I asked him what he was doing he explained he was on his way to Highway 27 (which runs right by the Trilogy Resort) where he planned to stand on the side of the road to catch people's attention and direct them to the arts and crafts show.

A dangerous task, I thought, as I thanked him and went on my way.

Golf Cart Gift

Sometimes life surprises you. Someone I know very well was recently gifted a new golf cart by his wife. His golfer buddy called the wife of the golf cart recipient a "saint." I think he was right.

The City Daily Photo theme for December 1 is "Gift."  You may check out interpretations of this theme HERE.

Publix Supermarket

On the right is the fish, meat and dairy aisle at our local Publix Supermarket. It was a slow day - not many people shopping.

What a friend we have in Jesus...

It always amazes me how people can hold totally contradictory views at the same time. Notice the Confederate flag, a symbol of slavery and the animals, probably a reference to the NRA and its perverted interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. The Jesus of the Gospels would be a friend of neither but would bitterly denounce both the slavery flag and the guns of the NRA.

The Very Large Shrimp

If you've had your fill of turkey, how's about a little shrimp?

La Cuisine

La Cuisine is an authentic French restaurant in downtown Ocala. It opened several years ago, and has established itself as the place to go if you want real French food. The owners/operators are from France so they know what they're doing. We have eaten here on a couple of occasions and found it to be delightful, if a little pricey.

Ulta - the store that provides comestics to meet a woman's needs. Recently, however, Ulta has added a section for men. It's an interesting store.
