Carolers on Cape Ann MA ~ Ladies Night Shopping










'Prompt' ~ new year ~ Carpe Diem







The photos above are of Cape Ann MA's Ladies Night shopping among the festivities. It was a lovely night and enjoyed rambling around enjoying the lights and taking photos. Then it was time to meet the 'ladies' for dinner. The place was so loud and noisy we could barely 'chat' much less relax. Could have been the acoustics of the place; yet have you ever been in a room filled with only females? Nuff said?
Sorry, ladies, I love you all but I was glad to get back out in the fresh night air. Come to find out; everyone felt the same way. Yet, they stayed.
 


I just had to leave my mind and body was (V) vexated (for ABC Wednesday) by the negative energy. Otherwise I would have needed a good dosage ((D) for Alpahbe Thursday) of medicinal liquor (none of which, does my body like). ^_^ So what other words can I come up with for ABC and Alphabe ~ hmm ~ Vendors selling to shoppers, Dear ones looking Xmas presents, more words, decorations, divine light of season, very, vain, voices and on and on for Ladies Nite on Cape Ann MA. Guess you had to be there?

  43. Good shopping pictures, Carol. :) I went shopping with Mrs. Jim yesterday too. And got a few good pictures. I wanted a lot of skaters on the ice rink in the Galleria Mall (inside) ice skating rink when I took the picture of the four story Texas pine Chirstmas tree but there were only two out on the ice.

    The best part of our shopping was the United Airlines VIP Lounge. We has coffee, cookies, brownies, Diet Cokes, fruit, and WiFi provided for the airline crdedit card holders. Plus four passes to the VIP lounge in exchange for the two toys we brought.

  51. Carol, sweet girl.

    I feel so much stress in your words.

    Your haiku was delightful and your photos the same...

    ...but still.

    I hope all is well with you!

    Sometimes my imagination is a bit overactive!

    I hope you're okay though.

    And thank you for linking.

    A+
