Friday Thoughts & Sky Photos





Click on photo to enlarge.




This was the sight that greeted me as I passed through Pea Ridge, Arkansas this past Tuesday evening as I headed home from work.  I just had to pull over and take the shot.

The Christmas lights have been taken down and put away for another year.  The tree has been boxed up and stored.  Well, the tree isn't down yet because it's been too cold to cart it outside and into the garage for storage.  The photos of Chrstmas' past have gone back into the drawer and another holiday season has come to a close.  The Sooners won the Sun Bowl.  That's a good beginning to the new year.  Sitting here watching the Fiesta Bowl, it is now official...TCU has replaced Oregon as the owners of the ugliest uniforms in college football.  Somebody call the folks at "What Not To Wear".


Sorry Horned Frog fans, but these are just bad looking uni's!



Of course with Oregon, there are just soooo many bad uniforms to pick from!  These are just a few of their seemingly endless options of bad taste.

Okay, that's enough sports fun for the day, on to the inspirational song.  I'm going to start the year with my favorite southern gospel group, Ernie Hasse and Signature Sound Quartet.  The song is "Trying to Get a Glimpse".  Enjoy.

    We have Christmas put away except for the outdoor lights. They are dark but I'm waiting until its warmer to take them down.

  9. Great catch of the sun's reflections on the clouds.

    Oregon's white uniforms aren't so bad. But what is with those checkered areas, or whatever they are?

    Thanks for stopping by My Field of Vision.

  10. I like the sky. As I forget the trees, the orange texture looks almost like a wheat field with the blue the sky above the horizon. The imagination works overtime with this view. Ugly uniforms? Hopefully their play on the field negates the 'style' they wear...

  11. Wow that sky is brilliant! What an amazing sunset.

    I also would have stopped the car to snap a photo. With my luck I would have left the camera home. haha

    Happy Sky Looking in 2010!

  12. That is one blazing sky indeed and thank for pulling over and not taking that shot while driving!

    The uniforms? Does the head coach say, "Sure, let's make the other team sick of looking at us and maybe we can win"?????
