Our Christmas Candle & Daisy's Present

Why I bet my Christmas Candle was bigger than your candle.
Yep I, Sweet William The Scot, call my water tower a candle at Christmas time.
My community is dominated by the water tower and we light it up at Christmas.
On a slow night in Nati City cars just park and watch the lights on the water tower change colors.
 It’s  a landmark for most of the east side.  As far away as Blue Ash, north of the city, the tower’s rotating light can be seen.
It starts out with the bulbs all white.
Then Christmas Carols begin to play and the lights begin to change colors.
We love the red and green colors going round the water tower.
Then you can see it dressed in red.
Then it is dressed in green.
There are probably a thousand different versions.
Why we were standing here taking pictures for over thirty five minutes and the candy cane red and white never appeared but yet we have seen it from the car when we are driving Columbia Parkway.
A crèche still sits on the grounds.
We got a Christmas Card from Daisy and the envelope had a little surprise box. 
Why wasn't that the nicest thing that she remembered Lee had given out some goat milk soap and Carrie sent her a bar from her farmer's market.  Lee can I send Daisy one of our Scottie bars?
Yes William you can send one back to her.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine
