The red rose drops on New Year’s Eve in Lancaster

2013/12/31

With all my New Year’s Eve plans bust I decided to head to down town Lancaster for the rose drop for the first time in my life.

The band was good.

The crowd mostly younger than me (not hard to do now days)

The ball drop less spectacular than I thought.

The fire works afterwords were great however.

Well over half the folks posted on their smart phones 10 minutes after the event. That has become part of the times in a good way, starring and interacting with our smart phones.

Diener’s reastaurant in ronks. It’s about the oysters

2013/12/30

Went with dad for dinner to on of his and the tourists favorite spots.

Amish foods prepared by the Amish.

I choose the deep fried oysters with a chicken rice side and buttered noodle side. They were Amish flavorful.

The first oyster I bit into I nearly broke my tooth! It had a tiny pearl in it the size of a pin head. Never had that happen time before.
