Friday's Hunt, January 8, 2016

Sky Watch Friday, Floral Friday Fotos, and Friday's Hunt

Sky Watch Friday
Tennessee River, Pickwick Dam, Tennessee, USA, January 4, 2016

Our weather this week has been mostly cloudy, with brief periods of sunshine. Temperatures were below freezing at night; days were cool and windy.

Floral Friday Fotos
Oxalis, Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, December 6, 2015

Oxalis blooms are very small, but what they lack in size they make up for in hardiness, blooming almost non-stop.

Friday's Hunt
The prompts for the Friday's Hunt this week are:
Starts with B, Week's Favorite, and Outside

Starts with B
Booneville, Mississippi, USA
Student Services Building, Northeast Mississippi Community College, Booneville, MS, USA

Booneville, located in the northeastern corner of Mississippi, has a population of about 10,000 people. The Community College, a two-year institution, was established in 1948. Students are trained in health sciences (nursing, etc.) and various technological fields, or they may take a wide variety of classes (math, history, literature, etc.) to transfer to a four-year college.


The Rails and Trails Museum occupies the old train depot built in 1913. It houses an extensive collection of historic records and artifacts.

Vietnam memorial, Booneville, Mississippi, USA

This 1967 Huey helicopter on the courthouse lawn is in honor of and a memorial to veterans of the Vietnam War.

Week's Favorite
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 6, 2016

Good thing this calf has on its winter coat as temperatures are dropping below freezing at night. (Yes, it does have shelter from the wind and rain, and has plenty of hay to eat).

Outside
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, January 7, 2016

With this week's dreary weather I knew that to get an interesting outside photo I would need to include animals. The Canada Geese at Ballard Park posed beautifully for me!

Happy Friday!

  7. Love the colorful clouds in your header. Nice shot for Skywatch, too. The community college building does have a vintage look to the color of the brick. My brother worked on Hueys in Viet Nam. The calf's fluffy coat looks warm. Geese always seem to be available, don't they?

  10. The moo cow looks a little peeved. We had a huge flight of Canada geese come in and stop on the river for a night's rest. They were loud!
