Humane Society Fundraiser

Chattanooga Humane Education Society is having its annual fundraiser called PAWS in the Park. For more information you can see more info here.

Sorry I haven't had many photos lately but the weekend was a total wash out then I got sick and blogger has not been cooperating. I'm hoping for better weather to take a bunch of more interesting photos this weekend.

New restaurant

Moe's Southwest Grill opened this week They're a national chain specializing in burritos and other TexMex food. I love the names they use for their food. Names like the Art Vandalay burrito or the Ugly Nake Guy tacos or Alfredo Garcia fajitas.

Ticket Booth

This is the ticket booth for the high school football (U.S. football) games. I never really thought much about it before but I guess it's painted to look like a wildcat, the school mascot.

It's amazing how doing this blog has changed my perception of so many different things!

Stormy Weekend

This picture (taken by my son) illustrates our weather this weekend. This picture was taken in the afternoon around 3 PM. But I can't complain because we need the rain. Just wish it wasn't all in one weekend!

I had a picture of the North Chickamauga Creek back on July 21st. That picture was taken from Boy Scout Road as it follows the creek. This picture was taken from Old Lower Mill Road yesterday. I don't know if you can tell from this picture but the creek is significantly lower than it was back in July and it was low at that time. When it is so low, it's hard to imagine that this is the same creek that floods over the road in both places where I snapped the pictures. Anyway, I thought this picture was nice with the water reflecting the trees.

Fall Festival

On the way to work I took this picture of a city worker is putting up a sign advertising a fall festival.

Falling gas prices

I filled up yesterday and paid $2.15 a gallon. This morning when I went by the price had dropped to again! I never know whether to fill up or not. I am always afraid if I wait the price will go up. A few months ago, I would pass by on my way to work in the morning but be in a hurry so I would wait until on my way home to stop and the price would be higher. Now it is just the opposite.

Have prices dropped in your area?

Modern art sculpture

I'm not sure if this work of art has a title or not, but it's located at the entrance to Chattanooga State Technical Community College.

Welcome fall y'all

One of our local Walmart supercenters has a very nice display out front to welcome the fall season. Things like this are nice to see after a long, hot summer.

A reminder that summer is not yet over

The nights are starting to get cooler (finally!!) but not everything from summer is gone yet.

Very resourceful birds

I found this bird's nest in a tree on the property of the church where I work. It's amazing all the things the birds used for this nest. Especially funny is the Easter "grass" they used. Every year the church sponsors an Easter egg hunt for the community children. Plastic eggs are filled with candy and placed around the church grounds sometimes with the fake grass. That must be where the birds came up with the idea!!

If you have a chicken with poor eyesight...

be sure to send it to Chattanooga! I thought this sign was amusing. I guess that means the advertisement works. It caught my attention.

The Fonz in Chattanooga

Actor Henry Winkler was in Chattanooga on Sunday to give the keynote address at Memorial Hospital's Health Fair at Hamilton Place Mall. Best known for his role as Fonzie in Happy Days, Winkler also signed autographs for fans. He gave a wonderful and often humourous speech about overcoming obstacles in life such as learning disabilities (he is dyslexic) to find the greatness which is in all of us.

I guess this picture is appropriate since I'm so late posting this today. Sorry about that, but my son came home from college for the weekend with a ton of dirty laundry and a list of grocery items he needs replenished!

Some sign humor

This chiropractor obviously has a sense of humor!

Friends of the Library sale

The Friends of the Library hold a book sale at the Northgate Mall each year to raise money. The books are 25 cents, 50 cents, one and two dollars, depending on what they are. They also sell some special sets at higher prices. For book lovers this is wonderful--you never know what you might find. I bought 8 Southern Living magazines--all recent issues-- for only $2.00. A good deal and a good cause.

Indoor sports complex

Chattanooga just opened an indoor sports complex. According to their web site, it's a 31,000 square foot state of the art facility featuring indoor soccer and lacrosse leagues with seats for 200 spectators and synthetic turf. I guess the artificial turf is a given.

House mailbox

Remember the House of 10,000 Frames? I noticed they have quite an elaborate mailbox. I considered it worthy of its own post.

I took this picture in my favorite fast food restaurant, Zaxbys. They specialize in chicken and unlike places like McDonalds, the interior is more like a a full service restaraunt.

I believe these are birdhouses made from gourds and then painted white. If anyone knows something more or if my assumptions are wrong, please let us know!! Part of doing a DP is to learn new things.

Doorways Theme Day

Finding an interesting doorway in Chattanooga was harder than I thought it would be. I took several pictures but decided to go with this one because it is "unique".
