About Town 3/29/2020

This week's photos of Columbia


This is what happens if you self-isolate too long.
Get out and get some fresh air and exercise once in a while; just remember to practice social distancing.

These folks are social distancing while walking on the high school hill.

 Don't become a statistic.

 It's all right to hope and pray, but follow healthful guidelines, too.

 Even churches are taking safety measures (shown here and below).



Right now would be a good time.

 But no matter what, spring has sprung...

. . . and life finds a way.

 Night lights on the 400 block of Locust

 Gone but not forgotten

 Starlight star bright

 This cardinal keeps attacking the window. Is it territoriality?

Here's a "step-by-step" of him staging another attack.

 Remains of a hornet's nest at Laurel Hill Cemetery

 Emergency work at the Market House to protect the $90,000 awning from the elements

 Here's some helpful graffiti at River Park.

 More food at Columbia Presbyterian Hands Across the Street

Working on the railroad once again.

In a former time, railroad workers looked like this.

There are some mighty tall people on the trail.

 These people are heading for the trail. Some trail walkers and riders observe social distancing. Some don't.

 If you're sick, stay away from others.

 This red-headed sparrow (house finch?) also kept banging on the window.

 He sat long enough for a portrait.

 Then flew off in a flurry.

 Uh.  How about . . . NO!?

 This isn't how it's supposed to be done. Don't throw gloves on the ground after use. That's counterproductive. Dispose of them properly.

 Meanwhile, over in Wrightsville . . .
So that's what COVID stands for.

 According to the King James Version, 2 Chronicles 7:14 states:
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

 Over on Poplar Street - some flowers to brighten your day.

And a few more on the landing

 Down at Eastern Drillers

 Keep holding on. This too shall pass.

 Time for a wipe-down
