These are some of the past Halloween years at Solstice in Nevada City, CA. They dress up during the last two weeks in October. This is the best place in northern California to get a fantastic costume any time of the year at a very reasonable price. If you are in or near the area come and join the fun. The address is Solstice, 104 north Pine st., Nevada City, Ca.
This is a song that I heard my mom play for many years. . .
. . . however, now when I sing it I think of “It Had to be You – Judy” Boy! Did it have to be her. She is so much fun with all of her get-ups – the first time that I saw her was 58 years ago in the 7th grade. Below are just a few of her crazy outfits.
The Real Judy
Judy the Cutie
I guess I am just a hopeless romantic . . .
Julie, Laura, & Judy
but I started a very short version of this song and made a CD for the goule (er ….. I mean girl – Judy that is) to hear at Solstice on her birthday last year. Her birthday is on October 28th so you can see that she dressed up for the occasion. She is the one on the right. Anyhow, I just finished the complete version of this Elvis song, “I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You“. Click on the blue to listen.

Victorian Christmas in Nevada City is a special time. The city closes the streets to traffic to celebrate the season.

This is an annual event in December on 3 Wednesday nights and 2 Sundays in downtown Nevada City. The streets (Broad St., Pine St., & Commercial St.) are blocked off and filled with booths, events, lots of live music, food & drink, horse drawn carriage rides, Santa, a Nativity scene with live people, and men telling who Jesus Christ is and what He came to do for us-the Good News! These pictures were taken on 12/15/2010.
Our daughter Laura owns a store in Nevada City. It is a new and used clothing store that specializes in costumes. These are pictures of the workers as they dress during Halloween week.
Halloween is a fun time for the employees as one can see. This was just one of the many busy days at the store in October 2014
