227. One Hundred

This year Mutual of Omaha celebrated one hundred years with Omaha, NE………to celebrate they put up a 16 story tiger picture on the side of their building – this is not the best picture, I had to try to shoot around construction, but it is absolutely beautiful at night all lit up!  Does anyone still remember the tv show “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom”??  That used to be a favorite of mine when I was a little girl….
