Throwback Thursday: Fun with The Big Guy

The Big Guy has a great sense of humor. He always finds way to make laugh.  These are shots from a photo shoot in 2006. The goal was to get photos for the Christmas card. Well, the Big Guy had to just be himself.

Throwback Thursday: Christmas Break 2003

Christmas 2003
Wolf Pen Creek Park
College Station, Texas

The Big Guy and I moved to Florida in July of 2003. This would be the 1st Christmas  of what would become an annual trek for the next several years. I don’t know if Texas was that much colder in December 2003 or if we were just not used to the cold. It was in the 60s when we left Florida.

Throwback Thursday: Still Freaky

I still think this photo from 2013 is freaky. It was part of a department store display just inside the mall entrance. That thing freaked me out every time I saw it. Good thing I didn’t go to the mall much.


Sky Watch Friday: At-At


Life-size At-At at Disney’s Hollywood Studio Orlando Florida

Last fall the Big Guy and I visited Walt Disney World (Florida).  We decided to visit Disney one more time before we moved back out-of-state.  In Disney’s Hollywood Studio there is a life-size At-At located near the Star Tours ride. I took this with the camera on my Samsung Galaxy S6.

Sky Watch Friday: Luther Memorial and Bell Tower


Luther Memorial and Bell Tower,
University of Mary-Hardin Baylor,
Belton, TX

Chartered in 1845 by the Republic of Texas, the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in Texas.  Pays tribute to the original building on UMHB’s campus.

The memorial pays tribute to Luther Hall, the first building constructed on campus when UMHB moved from Independence, Texas in 1886. Luther Hall was considered to be one of the finest academic buildings in Texas, until it burned down on January 26, 1929.

The memorial was constructed in 1955, from the stones of Luther Hall. It includes a bell tower with two historic bells. The Horton Bell, the lower bell in the tower, is from the University’s first location in Independence. The upper bell, the sophomore bell, can only be rung by sophomores as a traditional privilege reserved for them.

Throwback Thursday: Wakulla River Boat Tour

Originally posted Nov 29th, 2012.   I took this photo on the Wakulla River in Florida. We stayed at the The Lodge at Wakulla Springs located in Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park.  Built in 1930’s the Lodge features 27 rooms uniquely decorated for the time period. The historic lodge is well-maintained and includes a full-service restaurant as well as breath-taking views.  It is a great get away from things.  Cell phone service was spotty. WiFi and TV were available in the lobby. The TV only had DVD or VHS movies of movies filmed at the lodge and springs.
