Saturday, December 9, 2023: Mark and Paula drove to Galena, Illinois.
The town reminded them of Stillwater, MN, where the town is along a river and there are antique stores.

Before Mark knew it, Paula had a hand on Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant's leg. Hmmm.

This must be the car owned by the Grinch!

Mark was busy photographing girls with holiday lights.

Locals were singing Christmas songs on the street.

Holiday decorations were everywhere and more were being made that day.

Then Paula ran into the Grinch! Fortunately he was behind a store window and couldn't get out.

Imagine that, Santa knows how to play a bag pipe.

The streets came alive with people after dark.

Store windows had people in them.

Dorothy and the Straw Man were there from the Wizard of Oz.

Better be good, Santa was checking his list.

Quote of the day:    Love this town.  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
