Hmm. That didn't work. Guess I did that wrong. Sorry. Let me try again, adding the Spring photo and, after we moved to Florida, some alligators in the back yard canal.

Lizzie was having trouble posting pix. Maybe a mod can help her. In the meantime, here's one of my house from last year. The maple tree hasn't started turning yet.

It's a brand new day, and 3rd time's the charm, right?

So NC's Spring and Fall colors are worth a little trouble. Oh, yes - and the alligators in the back yard canal.
(Thank you, generous DCers, for the offers of help.)

MC I just went back to look at the photos. I remember once I asked my husband if he would ever consider going back to his childhood town to live. I got a very emphatic "NO!" I would have been very happy to live in the Lakes District. It is so beautiful.

I may have that completely wrong

EDIT:- Partly wrong. I've looked it up and it was the Chrysler Building and No 40 Wall Street
There was also a rivalry between the Woolworth Building and the Empire Building. It was during the time anyone who had a pocket full of money, was putting up a building and wanted to have the tallest one in NY. I personally love the Chrysler Building. It is so unique.
