What a fantastic view - at a new angle!
My sister, Laura, had her birthday party Saturday afternoon at the home of my nephew, Joey's, girlfriend near the bridges. What I would give to have a view like this out my window everyday! As you know, I love taking pictures of the towboats going up and down the Mississippi River. I was so excited when I saw how close we were and was able to take some pictures before it got too dark. Above is towboat, J. Russell Flowers, pushing a barge just passing under the I-20/Old Hwy 80 bridges loaded with coal going south.
Princess, her pit bull, was in the backyard.
I zoomed in and got towboat, Joe Bobzien, passing under the bridges from her front living room window.

My great niece, Anna Claire, Chris, brother-in-law and sister being handed her cake to blow out her candles by her son Joey, my nephew. My husband, Bob, sitting in chair out-of-view.
The bridges are all lit up like a Christmas tree after sundown. She's also a deer hunter and told me that deer are always in her yard walking around within the city limits. Her 10 year old son is also a hunter and puzzled why he cannot shoot them!
