A penguin to remember
I bought a few penguin ornaments when we went shopping after the opening reception for the Festival of Trees at the Trolley Museum in Scranton. Out of the group, I picked this one to be Number 900, because of its unusual color and design. I’ll have to try to photograph this penguin again to get a better angle. It’s flying, and it has an array of colored balls balanced on its back. The top of the beak was bent when I bought it. It was the last one at the shop, so I bought it even though it was broken.
