My picture today is of lily pads on Lake Tawakoni from last Saturday afternoon. I can look at this picture and just feel the heat I felt when standing on the rocks taking the picture.
This week I was honored to have three bloggers give me awards. Instead of passing on, I would like everyone to visit the sites that gave me the honors.
Ancient One's Place at Everlasting Mercy
Babooshka from Ramsey Daily Photo
Mary Beth over at Small City Scenes of Stanwood
All three are excellent sites.

IF I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Instead of posting a picture today, I am putting up a poster and a link on my sidebar.
One of the unique things about Terrell is the #1 British Flying Training School Museum. During WWII Terrell hosted one of six British Flying Training Schools. Thousands of British and American aviators learned how to fly in Terrell.
In February, I toured the Museum and posted a few pictures. This October, #1 BFTS Museum will host The Royal Air Force in Texas Fly-in. The fly-in will be a two day event that will bring veterans of the school back to Terrell for a reunion and an opportunity for the citizens of Terrell to learn about the museum and Terrells role in WWII. Go ahead and mark October 17th and 18th on your calendar, save your dollars and pounds and join us in Terrell.
Be sure to check out the link on the right for all of the details of the fly-in.
Be sure to also visit this site. Its a site dedicated to James Edward Castleman of Bogata, Texas who was an instructor at #1BFTS during the war. It includes many photos, stories, and memories.

To show support for the soldiers before heading out, Terrell Chamber of Commerce treated the soldiers and family to a day of ceremony and fun. Below is the Company marching from the Guard Headquarters to the Pavilion. More pictures to come.

Last day for the Paluxy River pics. I posted a few more over on my second page.
Brian also has been posting pictures from the town square of Glen Rose and the Paluxy River. Be sure to check out his pictures of the County Courthouse and square. We both took the road trip. When we got to the Paluxy River, he went one direction and I went the other. Did I mention it was HOT!
No he is not. The river bed is only about 6 inches deep where this guy it at.
Tomorrow, for better or worse, we jump back into the 21st century for Sky Watch Friday.

Yes, these are real. They are now part of the limestone rock.

I have added a new link to the sidebar. Terrell Soup by Laurie. Be sure to check out her site and offer encouraging words. Any other Terrell related blogs out there? Let me know, I may add them to the blog roll.

The Terrell Heritage Museum reflected in the windows of the Terrell Post Office. Sometime next year ground breaking is suppose to take place to replace the Post Office. The Museum is the building is my header photo. I have been thinking of changing it to something else. Its been up there since I started my site June 2, 2007. Any ideas? I may choose 5 photos and put up a poll to let readers decide. But I hate change, I do not like it when someone moves my cheese.

Water sprinklers are becoming a familiar site in Terrell. Summer in Texas always brings dry weather and high temperatures. This is up the street from my house. I wanted to take off my shoes and socks and go run through it.

These signs are part of Jasons Hot Rodz Cafe. You can also find the hippy sign and 8 veggies daily there. The food is really good and the owner has a good sense of humor. It's located at the corner of Moore Ave and SH 34 in Terrell. Stop by and try the hamburger steak with bbq beans and mashed potatoes.

The blooming crepe myrtles made for a beautiful backdrop.
The quality is not very good, but here is a short clip of the orchestra performing Hello Dolly.
A second longer clip is available on the you tube link to the right.

Just a few more fireworks pictures to share.
I love the way the ground was lit up from the blast.
Here is part of the finale. I uploaded a clip on you tube of a portion of the fireworks show. Click on the you tube link on the right. The fireworks show alone is worth the drive to Terrell from Dallas or Collin County. Tomorrow pictures of the North East Texas Symphony Orchestra.

Other towns in the Metroplex have their own fireworks shows, but I would put Terrells show right up there with the big boys. The Chamber does a awesome job putting this on.
I added a couple of clip to You Tube. Click on the link to the right to see whats new.
