Orange You Glad It's Friday, Week 114 - October 30, 2014


First of all, I must congratulate my home team San 
Francisco Giants on their great World Series win.
It was a knuckle biting seven games and, though I 
didn't actually watch them from India, I followed, almost
play by play, on internet news.

I offered prayers to almost every deity, including Lord
Ganesha, the Indian god, known as the overcomer of
obstacles.  To whichever god ( or all of them ) that 
helped my team win, thank you!!  Our city rejoices.

My "orange you glad Friday" post is of a sweet Lord
Ganesha I found at Creative Textiles in Jaipur, a store
that had wonderful fabrics and made lovely clothes 
from them.  I came home with two outfits and this 
little Ganesha.  I now have a small collection of Ganeshas.




I am participating in 





Add your orange photo to
join in the fun.

    1. I've learned about him only since my year of living in India. He's an interesting god with the head of an elephant who is the one who overcomes great obstacles!!!

    1. Thank you, Stanley. There is a lovely home in San Francisco, near the medical building and hospital where many of my doctors are. It is a showplace in early summer with all its incredible roses and I always visit when they are in bloom. I have hundreds of great photographs.
