Our Towns' Museums

This week's theme is Museums.  Somehow our dates got mixed up because on the side panel it shows April 11 is Museums.  "April 11: Museums - All our towns have at least one. Grand or simple, inside and out, they tell the stories of our towns. (Ginger)", and on the 18th which is tomorrow is "BELLS"  I hope this minor mix-up did not get anyone on the wrong topic for this week.  I am sure that I intended bells for EASTER which is this week.... so I don't know where it went wrong.   And, for all you new members of the group, this would not be the first time that someone was on the wrong week (B&B was notorious for forgetting what the topic of the week was), or the admin group was on the wrong date.  So this is what will happen, if you did Easter bells for this week, then next week give us a museum in your town and if your did a museum this week then YEA!! AND if you did a museum with a bell.....  you get a prize for being able to figure out that we made a mess of the dates and covered yourself with ... class ......

This week from my archives of Museums visited:
from The Gold Museum - El Museo del Oro, Bogotá,Colombia.




Our weekly spotlighter is Mersad

Our next weekly theme is Let the bells ring - Let the bells ring in celebration. Can you catch the bells in your town ringing? A short video with sound is what we want, but will be happy with a photo of the bells in your town, or images of celebration.



Friday My Town Shoot Out is a group blog kept going by wonderful volunteers who love the idea of sharing our home towns and visiting other places through images. We welcome you to participate in our weekly link-ups and/or get more involved as one of our volunteers.

Weather in the Spotlight

I have to admit I thought that "the weather" was an unlikely topic.  
How wrong was I? 

Initially I saved more than 10 photos, 
then had to get to work to cut it down to a manageable number.

We had wind in Massachusetts thanks to a spirit of simplicity

  And, from Salma in Calgary, a child prepared to enjoy himself whatever the weather.


Here's hoping we all have weather we like this week!

Weather Changes [Friday My Town Shoot Out]

I don't know about you but the weather here has been very inconsistent, with sun and rain interchanging day in and day out. That's why we thought that this weeks theme should be about weather in our towns. Of course this doesn't have to be about the current weather. Be creative. For what weather is your town or city known for? What big weather events do you know of? Or simply, what's the April weather in your parts of the world. Show us and link up for everyone to see!

Spotlights: Out and About in my Town

This group is getting more entertaining each week.
Wow such wonderful photos were shared this week.

Dawn Treader's-Through Town
gives us the feeling of touring her town with her. Activity around the flower beds and landscape give us a feeling of renewing for the coming season.


Christa's geese illustrate how a walk around the town can show us the local fowl in the area and the photos all together, when you look at them on her blog, show the intelligence these fowl possess.
Taking care of the family.


 Pauline saw more than building and landscape on her walk about.
The routine of the young folks make for an interesting insight into what kids love to do.
Here I think they were about finished and goofing off.


 Jim's Palm Tree
Represents a calmness that can be found among 
a bustling community.



See you next week.
Peggy 

Our next weekly theme is 
April 11: Weather Changes - April is known to have massive swings when it comes to weather. It can change quickly during a day. Show us your town's weather, from nice and sunny, to grey and rainy. (Mersad)
