Home: Merry and Bright

Cranes Roost was a big run off area. Probably a result of a sinkhole about a hundred or so years ago, I would image. About 15 years ago they cordoned it off into a park like area and for the past few years has been the subject of decorations for Christmastime.

It is funny to go to this area and have this marker up, and then the one of Eddie Rose (right). He was a politician, and a really likable guy. Eddie Rose was a councilman, and a very approachable one. He drove a pink Cadillac, had once been a performer, I think, and was extremely capable and competent. It was nice that they named the bandstand area after him.

The funniest part is that the power company, Progress Energy takes credit in sponsoring this. That’s a first. Aside from the Loch Ness monster with the Santa hat on (below).

The crane could care less. Happy holidays.
