Theme Day: —Display a Photo of a City Other than Your Own
Apocolypto: I am from New York.
Revealed to me: Bath is also in New York (and several other American states–thanks JC for the link).

It really was a shock to find out that there was a Bath, New York. The featured church steeple here reminds me of St John’s RC Church in Bath, Somerset.

The state of New York has given birth to more religions and denominations of Christianity than any other place in the world, minus the obvious. But if things keep going the way they have, in another 1,000 our state will be the new Holy Land.

The photo displays the typical New York atmosphere. There are often numerous churches in a small town, typically confronting each other with a competing tower height on four corners of the main street. Upstate has been landscaped with these monumental crosses, and numerous attempts have been made to grid the sky in rural areas not yet primed for skyscrapers.

The little town of Bath, New York is a magical place where little people live peacefully, drink from the chocolate river, manufacture their world-renowned sweets, and occasionally break into song and dance at the gluttony, greed, sloth, etc. of others………..no, wait, I wouldn’t know. The car I was in didn’t stop when we passed the place on the highway.

ME:
STOP! This is Bath! I’m going to live here in a week!
JC:
I’m not stopping. You’ve got enough photos of stupid towns already.
ME:
Stupid town! This is Bath—-B-A-T-H. The Bath Civic Improvement Council will hear about this.

(And now 229 days later, they will with a Google search. JC, feel free to apologize to the good citizens of
Bath, NY. And yes, be prepared to be pilloried for the one town you didn’t stop at in a very very large state.)
