“Gettysburg Snow”

I spent the past couple of days in Gettysburg, visiting the battlefield in the snow.   My favorite time…..not many adventurous tourists braving the winds and cold, no ticks trying to snuggle up my pant leg.   I have been having problems with my Facebook page, so I thought here would be a nice place to catch up and chat.

We went to a nice restaurant on Friday night, in the next town over.
Restaurants are great places for blog writers.   You can see and overhear so much from the diners nearby.   I remember our last visit, a woman chewed out her husband the entire meal for ordering steak.   The rant was endless, You know you can’t eat that…..are you really going to finish all that……..and so on and so on.   The man retaliated, probably eating more than the point at which his stomach was satiated…..I am sure he went home with indigestion……more so from the nagging partner across his table.

Friday night was a different scenario.   Well dressed couple…….complete with a little square box shaped cooler.   This restaurant is a BYOB one….people bring their own wine and the waiters uncork and bring glasses.    This woman took out her own flask, not something you see every day.   Then, out of the cooler came a gallon size ziploc bag full of ice……I kid you not……..ICE.    Now, couldn’t you ask the waiter for more ice…..This ice bag made its appearance several more times……especially the one where a stray cube flew across the floor……… The pièce de ré·sis·tance was when their own tupperware type container came out of the cooler to encase some leftover sauce from the meal.

You see a lot of strange things around Gettysburg……mists, apparitions, lights appearing…..this nears the top of strangest…..and I wasn’t even ghost hunting………. 🙂

I took some photos on the battlefield……here is a favorite spot of mine…….The Irish Brigade Wolfhound Monument…….captured through my infrared lens……….

Thanks for stopping by to chat……
