We are going on a little weekend trip. I'll leave you with some pictures from home and hopefully I'll return with some nice pictures from another place.

Have a great weekend!

My Two Glamour Pusses

Lucy








  and Annie

They both enjoy afternoon sunbaths and lots of cat food . Lucy is sixteen years old and she lost her kittenish figure a long time ago but she's still beautiful. Annie is a plump little five year old who loves to play and frolic almost as much as she likes to eat.

 Lucy and Annie wish their cat friend Jim a Happy Birthday! (Joyeux anniversaire!)

 Annie says:  "Je pense que j'ai le b├ęguin pour toi Jim". but don't tell Lucy. :-)

That's Amore

Venice, Italy

It was a cold and foggy night and this couple had St. Mark's Square almost all to themselves. They didn't even notice the intrusive photographer lurking behind the columns.

The Rainy Day

Florence, Italy

" The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall, 
And the day is dark and dreary."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 But "every cloud has a silver lining"   Today is a beautiful spring day with lots of sunshine.

Vacations seem to go by so quickly but memories can last a lifetime, especially when you take pictures.

The Missed Train

Dallas, Texas  (Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)

It's so annoying to walk up just as your train speeds by. That wasn't the case for me this night because I had a rental car. :)

The Burger Bar

Cleburne, Texas


 Apparently not everything is bigger in Texas.
 I had a free day while I was in Texas last week so I took a drive. This is one of the interesting things that I saw. It's called the Burger Bar and supposedly they've been serving delicious hamburgers since 1949. The tiny brick building has been there since 1893. Unfortunately I was there too late to get a hamburger and too early for good photography light. I definitely want  a second chance for both.
