Saturday, December 3, 2016:  The Dynamic Duo of Mark and Paula headed to St. Paul to see the Landmark Center.
A statue out front is American short story writer and novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940). 
The books he wrote included
The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, and Tender is the Night.
Plenty of pigeons looking for food outside.  They didn't mind 15 degree temperatures.
Snoopy characters grace a park in front of the Landmark Center.
There is a skating rink nearby.  It is a popular spot in evenings and on weekends.
Inside the Landmark Center where it was nice a warm.  Piano player Laura Bond making Christmas music. 
It used to be in old western movies that there would be a sign on the piano saying, "Don't Shoot the Piano Player."  It seems piano players were few and far between so they couldn't afford to loose one!
A view of the center part of the holiday craft vendor area.  This is just 1/4 of the total holiday sales space in the building. 
Notice a man looking over the area from the second floor.
Paula was caught putting a hand in the proverbial cookie jar back at the hotel.  She loves sweets.

Quote of the day:    Yes, Christmas is approaching.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
