Sleigh bells ring…


In the lane, snow is glistening…


Walking in a winter wonderland.



Warm and dry.

Cold and dry.

Cool and dry.

Hot and dry.

Windy and dry.

Dry and dry.

Cry me a river would be more like it.

If only raindrops kept falling on my head.

I’d be singin’ in the rain.

Just singin’ in the rain.

But nooooo…

Not likely.

At least, not this week.

Puddles are a thing of the past.

Raincoat’s a relic.


Now that’s a laugh.

And yet…

The weather is perfect.

More like Bethlehem.

Star-filled skies.

Radiant moon.

Any moment a miracle.

Any moment things change.

The world turns.

All is calm.

All is bright.


Signs of it are all around the square.

And elsewhere.

Cherokee Rose.

Country Collectibles and The Thing Is.

Market Square and Mason Resale Barn.

Community Thrift Shop and Mason Thrift.

Sam’s Antiques and Currey’s Fabrics.

Hinckley’s Country Store and Red Door Antiques.

Benjie’s and Ranchland Western Wear.

The Cotton Patch.

The Courthouse lawn.

Especially at night.

Arnold Art Gallery and Gems of the Hill Country.

The Shooting Star and Petal Patch.

Underwood’s Antique Mall.

The Mason Gallery.

Joyful and triumphant.

Plenty to choose from.

For one and all.

That’s Mason.
