HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
This is Mr. Neon, Miami's answer
to New York's Times Square apple!
A replica of him adorns
one wall of the Intercontinental Hotel,
in downtown Miami,
and helps to count down to the new year.
I did try to get some pictures
of the hotel with my cell phone camera,
but they didn't come out very well.
This one was fine, though,
because Mr. Neon was propped up
on a stand set up in Bayfront Park,
adjoining the hotel,
for picture-taking purposes.
He came out pretty good, I think,
considering my little phone camera
has no flash!

I would like to wish all of my readers
and their families
a blessed, joyful, and peaceful year,
one full of wonderful opportunities
