A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

One-Legged Lamp

If you guessed from my post title the movie "A Christmas Story" (based in Cleveland, Ohio) on where the one-legged lamp became a "household" name and on the "map", you guessed correctly. So when I walked into my, friend, Donna Norris's, home this evening, right from the front door I spotted the illustrious lamp. It's the big one and a very nice one at that. I had to marvel how statuesque it is, and had to inquire where she had gotten it (she's from Maryland).

It so happens that her husband does electrical work for local theatre companies in the area, and of course, as a volunteer. But for this particular company, The Pasadena Theatre Company, her husband was also in the cast. He did double duty and the director thanked him for all his hard work (behind the scenes, and in the scenes) with this "world famous" one-legged lamp! Wow, what a thoughtful gift for sure.
