Photos of Green Bay and Christmas Lights


Today was a fun day at work, because the director of the whole place took us out for pie at the Norske Nook, since we published a cookbook of their famous pies. I tried to order a slice to take home for Travalon on my own bill, but the director heard me, and he said, "No, put it on my bill." What a generous guy!

As promised, here are some photos. First are a couple of shots of a harpsichord at a concert Tiffy, OK Cap, and I attended a few weeks ago.



This is Brett Favre's bronze football at the Packer Hall of Fame:


This lovely shrine is in St. Willibrod, the church where Vince Lombardi attended daily Mass. I took some shots of the interior of the church, but they didn't turn out as well.


This is the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, just north of Green Bay:


This is the Christmas tree in the State Capitol:


And this is the flute band playing in the Capitol. Notice the very large flute on the far right side of the picture, which is shaped like the number 4.


This is my church decorated for Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is decorated differently every year.


Here are some shots of Christmas lights - a house in my neighborhood, and two shots of the most impressive one in town, with moving lights. (I should have made a movie! Maybe I still can...)





And finally, a not very good movie I shot of the Santa Clauses (and one reindeer) on bikes that we kept seeing go by all day long on Saturday:

I enjoyed visiting the shrine and St.Willibrod up in Green Bay,where another saint(in the minds of diehard Packer fans) Saint Vince, attended daily mass. It's interesting that I read he served as an altar boy, even when he was winning championships as the Packers head coach. Very devout man. I am now reading a fascinating biography of him called " When Pride Still Mattered"
