I think I've said it before on these pages but I love Epiphany.  In my mind it is the transition point from Christmas season to Mardi Gras season. Also, my second daughter was baptized on epiphany and for that it is also special.  

We usually mark our door. I was mortified to realize we skipped 2015 probably because of all the orthopedic issues we had last year. I'm proud to report this year we got back up on that ladder and marked the door.  20+c+m+b+16

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Many, many thanks to Richard who send me this fantastic picture from Ho Chi Minh City.  This mansard is some type of court building.

The folks on the motorbikes make this picture especially terrific.

Washington VFW

Wow! This is quite a beautiful VFW hall in Washington Missouri. 

An aside, when I was in high school we would go to the VFW hall in Fenton and watch bands play.

Just a weird looking semi mansard semi modern building in Hannibal.
