A most unusual Show n Tell

CLICK EITHER BUTTON to join Flash NON-Fiction 55 below my.... SHOW N TELL Okay, tell me....just how LONG have Bud and I lived in this house in Texas? Yep, going on seven years!! And I had a revelation!! Of the close-encounter type! Bring on the National Enquirer...no, on second thought, don't tell ANYone. But, realize you saw it here first. I really don't want those overzealous religious 'freaks' showing up in our neighborhood and blocking the streets and driveways, searching for a religious phenomenon that will save us all. But wait, I still want to share this with those who visit me today looking for a show n tell post. A while ago, several days, weeks ago in fact, when I opened our garage door to get the car backed out, I walked around the backside of the car to get into the driver's seat. And, yes, a squirrel scurried down the trunk of the pecan tree which made me look up because of the commotion. The light of day was just right...and the

Santa was really good to me this year!! Except for one thing I received in the mailbox!...Christmas day is now over for, once again, another year. I will be busy 'undecorating' the house in a bit. At least will begin to take things down. It usually takes me 3 to 4 days to pack things away. Oh, and to get back to the 'lighter side' of the season, I received a package in the mail this past month, but there was a note stamped all over stating it's not to be opened 'til Christmas Eve!! No return address on the outside either. I was just itchin' to open the sucker!!! It's the cutest darned gift. It's from a secret Santa. I don't know who to thank for this. I'm venturing to think it's from a family member, tho not sure. Only those who visit my blog know I collect Santas, so it has to be someone close; like family or an online friend. All I DO KNOW is it's just too adorable. It's called "Sunday Drive"; a KSA C

Christmas in the heart puts Christmas in the air.....

Click button to Join Photos don't really "match" the lyrics this time 'round, but it's all in the spirit of the magic of the season, and the child in us all-------- Fairy tales can come true It can happen to you if you're young at heart For it's hard, you will find To be narrow of mind if you're young at heart You can go to extremes with impossible schemes You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams And life gets more exciting with each passing day And love is either in your heart or on the way Don't you know that it's worth Every treasure on earth to be young at heart For as rich as you are It's much better by far to be young at heart And if you should survive to a hundred and five Look at all you'll derive out of bein' alive And here is the best part, you have a head start If you are among the very young at heart - - - Each year there is an entire neighborhood area in town, near the Country Club Distri

Click either button to Join = = = I'm posting early for Wednesday... Right at the end [or beginning, depending on how you look at it] of Texas' Interstate Highway #37, where the pavement ends and the Bay waters begin, you'll find a newer city fountain along the 2 mile walkway---this is near the cultural center of the city. Across the street from the fountain is the Bank Center, the indoor arena, the Auditorium, the Harbor Playhouse [live amateur theater] the Federal Courthouse, the Art Center, the science museum,--near the area, IN the bay [as you can see with the blue lights in the background to the left in the top photo, behind the palm trees] is the World War II aircraft carrier that's now a floating museum, the USS Lexington, and the lighted gazebo in the background of the photos is one of several along the walkway. And on the back side of the gazebos is...the Gulf of Mexico. At night, the fountain glows with beautiful colors---------Here are da
