Header Competition Season 2 # 28 - "Fountain"

The theme this week is by Mac which is "Fountain".  Mac, Gail's ManLanny, Dave,Sandy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that. Some will post late this week so they may post by Friday.

"Fountain" is an interesting subject. My favorite photo is my wife and the "Sound of Music" fountain at Salzburg, Austria. 

I have used it before so I needed another fountain. I decided on the Soda Fountain at Vermilion, Ohio. It is a fun little place that we stopped and had a root beer float.
I took a photo of the two of us at the soda bar.
We have gone to the soda fountain at Hershey, PA back in the 70's and it was cool. This on is really neat with a lot of nostalgia throughout the place.


Be sure to see what the others have to show when they post.

This is a wonderful interpretation of the 'fountain' theme. I haven't seen a soda fountain like this in years.
