Step right up

Click on each picture to get a larger size.

Last night I posted part of a picture I took of a neighbors porch. Here is the full view, and a close up of the butler and piano player. I love looking at this porch. They even have gargoyles on the outside of the steps.

Hi Way 80 sale

I forgot that last weekend was the Hi Way 80 sale. Its a big sale on the side of the road from Mesquite, TX to Monroe, LA. Terrell had vendors set up in a parking lot right next to the highway. By the time I remember all that was left was the sign. Hi Way 80 is Moore Ave through Terrell.

I posted a pic just a few weeks ago of my cats sitting at the window. Decker, the orange cat has gotten sick. The vet thinks its cancer. He has gone from 13 pounds when he went to the vet for his shots in June to 9 pounds last weekend when we took him back to the vet. He hasn't ate anything for two weeks. We made the decision yesterday, that hes going back to the vet today to more then likely be put to sleep. We don't know what else to do. Here are a few of the pics of him that I had on my computer and a few we have taken in the last few days. I don't want to bore ya, but I am selfish, I want to be able to remember my kitty.

Goodbye Decker

What is the Subaru 360?

Driving to work everyday we pass an old rusted car on the side of the road in McLendon-Chisholm, TX. We have always wondered what it was, but never really took the time to find out. We finally took a picture of it and found out what it is, its a Subaru 360.
