Friday "My Town" Shootout... My favorite place to ________

Only one pic today.... busy week! I wish I had more time to show you things like my favorite breakfast place, my favorite fruit and vegetable market... :(

This week's shootout theme was chosen by Cindy in Alaska--"My Favorite Place to _______". Head here to see all the wonderful pictures!

My favorite place? This is my favorite place to go and feel better--my chiropractor! Dr. Mike and the gang at Foothill Chiropractic Center are always so optomistic and they take good care of their clients. I originally went to him since physical therapy for my carpal tunnel wasn't helping at all. Ever since starting with the chiropractor 10 months ago? The CTS has virtually vanished. :D Dr. Mike is awesome!

Friday "My Town" Shootout--domesticated animals!

This week's theme was suggested by Sandy from Apache Junction, Arizona--domesticated animals!

Be sure to head here to see all the other participants from around the world!

Head here for a previous entry when I visited the local dog park. :)

There aren't many domesticated animals around me that are easy to photograph, but I did find one sneaky guy...

Hmmm... what's that peering at me through the bushes??

I love his blue eyes!!

Friday "My Town" Shootout---"Aged and Weathered"

This week's theme for the Friday "My Town" Shootout was chosen by Pauline from Northland, New Zealand--"Aged and Weathered"!

Even though Dublin is a relatively "new" town, people have been living in the area since the 1800s. (the town decided not to incorporate or get a mayor, city council, etc. until 1982. :) Matter of fact, we STILL get fire protection from the county instead of having our own dept.)

I took a drive down one of our "country" roads to see what I could find...

An old barn...

A fence leaning precariously...

A tree that was still loaning a wee bit of shade...

...and one that had seen the years....

Last but not least... a street sign that could use replacing!

Friday "My Town" Shootout--Doors and Windows!

This week's Friday Shootout theme was chosen by Kerri from Canada--Doors and Windows! Don't forget to click on the blog to see some fantastic photos!

Since Dublin is a relatively "new" town (incorporated in 1982), we don't have many old things!

At a loss for subjects, I headed over to a local Lutheran church to take some pictures of their beautiful stained glass windows. Notice the windows have a separate pane on the outside... gotta love living in earthquake country!

These are behind the altar, and tell the story of the Parable of the Sower. First up is the sower planting his seeds...

...and the other side is the wonderful harvest. Sorry about the reflections!

Next to the side entrance, there are these wonderful matching angels...

These lend a nice touch to Sunday morning worship... this was the church I went to growing up and was confirmed there a long time ago. :)
