I recorded the above on Main Street in Sylva, North Carolina on Friday night.
I had a great time at all the events I went to, and will be getting video and photos of the other stuff up today and tomorrow (I hope).
I am editing the dedication of the flag pole at the Veteran’s Memorial Park. There was no sound system at the ceremony, and none of the words are understandable from any of the participants, so I will have to do a voice over…and I hate doing that, and will put it off as long as I can.
My internet service was down all weekend, and my email box is full. So, if you sent me an email, please be patient. I will be answering them in the order I received them.
Also, Senator Jesse Helms has died, and I will have a tribute to him Wednesday or Thursday. Three Presidents (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe) and one Vice-President (Hannibal Hamlin) also died on the 4th of July. Jesse lived a good life, served this nation well, and we could use a few more like him.

Geese in the Valley
Geese in a Grey Sky
I saw these geese circle the campus of Western Carolina University on my way to lunch. They flew from the north, paralleling NC107 on the west side of the campus, turning at the Ramsey Center, and flew back north along the east side of the campus.
When I worked in Maggie Valley, I saw the same sort of thing a lot…a formation of geese would fly by and wheel around and go back the way they came, sometimes repeating the path two or three times.
I wonder if they are lost, or just cruising?

Warming up at Smoky Mountain High School in Sylva, NC

I hope no one noticed I misspelled “luminaries” last night. Ooops!
Anyhow, the luminaries is based on the Scandinavian custom of lighting the way for the Christ Child during the Christmas Season, and it has been part of the Dillsboro Christmas Season for over a decade now.
I took 337 photos and videos last night, and whittled down my photos to 82 that I wanted to share, and then found out that photobucket limits the number of photos in a slide show, so I will be putting them on You Tube sometime Monday morning after I get to the office.
So, for now, here is what I could get uploaded while I was at the library this afternoon:

I am at the lighting of the Luminaires tonight in Dillsboro, and here are some early pix and a video of the train leaving on it’s way to Bryson City. It should be back by 6 pmish.
Scenes from Dillsboro tonight, the video is unedited, and I’ll have an edited version up by Monday.
And this is where I am uploading from!
