Still under construction

The overpass was supposed to be open on the 22nd.  I guess the weather has delayed it.

Royse City ISD Destination Imagination Turkey Trot

The 16th was the Royse City ISD Destination Imagination Turkey Trot, a 5K and 1 mile fun run. It was cold and wet, but still a fun morning.  I didn't know it at the time, but I finished 1st in my age group.  I also finished 2nd to last in my age group.....there were only 2 runners between 45-49.

Still waiting for the rain, the ice, the sleet, the snow.  What a bust, nothing. Maybe we will get something this morning.

Yesterday I went to the TISD Performing Arts Center to watch the Terrell High School Theatre Departments performance of Grease:School Version.  No pictures or video taping during the play. But take my word for it, it was great.

College football

I had the chance to take pictures at the Texas A&M Commerce vs Eastern New Mexico University football game this past Saturday.  I posted over 100 pictures from the game on my Facebook page.  I received notice last night that some of my photos were published in a campus newsletter with credit given.  It's fun to see someone enjoy my photos. Maybe one day, someone will offer to pay me for one.  Here are a few of my favorites from the game.

Kind of a big deal

Just a bridge, but I think a bridge over Moore Ave and the RR tracks has been talked about for decades. This morning there will be a dedication ceremony on the bridge, and on the 22nd it will open to regular traffic.

I was THAT person...

Saturday morning was the That Dam Lake Texoma 5K run.  Knowing how fast, or slow, I am, I usually start in the back.  I hate the people that start at the very front, then when the horn blows, they start off walking or jogging very slow.

Well Saturday, I decided I wanted to be in the front.  So, I wobbled my way up to the front and waited for the GO signal.  As soon as it started, I felt a rush.....not a 'let's do this rush', but a rush of people passing me as I slowly jogged my way from the starting line.  I learned my lesson, never start near the front again.

I jumped out right before the start and took this picture.

Overnight Freeze Warning

It was supposed to dip into the upper 20s last night.  I noticed they put this sign up on the bridge that isn't open yet.  But it wont be long now.

Remembering Our Fallen

A traveling exhibit is currently on display at the Terrell Performing Arts Center.  Remembering Our Fallen, is a photo display honoring our military who have died from wounds suffered in a war zone since Sept. 11, 2001. The Terrell exhibit consists of men and women from Texas.  Terrell has lost 5 young men to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I visited last night and took the time to look at ever picture and name.   The Terrell Tribune has a great slideshow posted on their Facebook page of a ceremony held Sunday.

TARA baseball tournament

This weekend was the season ending TARA baseball tournament.  I visited and took pictures for a couple of hours yesterday.  Three games going on at the same time was fun.

Football season ends

Last night was the final football game of the year for the Tigers.  We said goodbye to the seniors, then the team went out and had fun. They didn't win the game, but they all showed class and good sportsmanship.

A break in the rain

We need all the rain we can get, the last two days have been nice.  Nothing heavy, just a light rain.

Trick or Treat Tradition

Last night was the annual trick or treat on Moore Ave in Terrell.  The weather was perfect, lots of kids and even a few zombies, including zombie Elvis and friends.
