Upcoming Events the Week of December 14

Congratulations to Navy the victor this year in the Army vs Navy game in Philadelphia.  What a great game! I got to see the Navy making their way up Interstate 95 into Pennsylvania, that was exciting too.  Traffic was blocked to let the many buses through. I will share the pictures I was able snap throughout today's list. I did not count the buses, but there were a lot.


Weird weather but, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Buffalo Bills 23 -20.  Yes, Philadelphia there is a Santa Claus. As a famous Philadelphia Phillie's pitcher, Tug McGraw once said, You Gotta Believe.
