'Tis the Season


A sure sign of the approaching season...the bell-ringers are out.  This man was in front of our grocery store, and since I had my folding stool with me, I decided to sketch in the sunshine while my husband finished shopping.  We had a nice chat!

As I watched, a young boy put his coins into the bucket and this fellow let him ring the bell...fun to watch. (I'll bet he was glad of our 60-degree weather, sometimes it's brutal out there, but the bell-ringers are out, fair weather or foul. )

Even more than the holiday lights and yard decorations and carols, I love the Salvation Army bell ringing as THE symbol and soundtrack for the season. You've shown and spoken it here, Cathy!

Thanks, Virginia! I like seeing them, and I was glad I had some money with me...I usually don't!
