A "Witche's" Present


This "artwork" is on a fence (obviously) in between two buildings on Richmond. I saw it on Friday coming home from work and couldn't resist taking a picture.
*Isn't is supposed to be a "witch's" present though?*
Thanks for your patience with us...it's been a hectic week.

Hoping For a Pretty Day

One day at lunch I spotted all of these cars being washed at Bubbles on Kirby. It was a beautiful day...I hope today will be just as nice.

Take a look at the woman under the blue umbrella waiting for her car to be finished...poor thing!

Have a great day!

The Masterpieces of French Painting

This past Thursday we had an incredible evening at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. They are having an exhibit of the Masterpieces of French Painting from the Metropolitan Museum. We saw spectacular paintings...some very famous. It is going on until May, and I highly recommend seeing it. It is truly incredible.

Also on Thursday, Gregory Curtis held a lecture at the museum on the first painters in history...The Cave Painters. I bought his book and am excited to read it. It was such a lovely day.

Art Car...or Van

I saw this very cool looking van in the parking lot of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston in the museum district recently. I just had to take a picture. Around town you can spot several festively decorated vehicles, lovingly called, "Art Cars."

Another shot at IAH

We're Back! We have had a nice Spring Break and are back in the swing of things.

This is another shot from Bush Intercontinental Airport. The blue and silver statue/sculptue doodad caught my eye.

IAH

First off, let me apologize for not posting the last few days...I have been on Spring Break. I have worked all week and have been absolutely exhausted. But I would like to catch you guys up today.

Megan went to New York City this week with her High School Choir and we just picked her up Wednesday afternoon. I took this picture as we were entering the parking area for Terminal C at Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). Notice the rain on the windshield? The weather was awful Wednesday...it even hailed on the way to the airport!

St. Mary's Orphan Asylum


We spotted this early Saturday morning on the Seawall of Galveston. I love the personal touch of the flowers adorning the sign. To read about this amazing spot in history go here, here, and here.

Sunrise in Galveston

We dropped off Megan at her school at 3am Saturday morning because her school choir went to New York City for Spring Break. After dropping her off, we decided it would be nice to see the sunrise in Galveston...so we drove down there and stopped on the seawall. It was just wonderful! I love the sun's rays in this picture!

I just love the beach...don't you? To see live pictures from webcams at the island go here and to read about Galveston's fasication history go here.

Red Bull

Walking out of class on Thursday night I spotted a Red Bull Mini Cooper. I just had to take a picture. Have any of you seen these around your parts of the world?

Are You Drinking At-Risk?


I couldn't help but notice a poster today in the Student Services Building on campus...undoubtedly for the "Spring Breakers." It reads, "Are You Drinking At-Risk?" and goes on to explain the maximum you should drink and what constitues as "a drink." For example, men should have no more than 4 drinks a day or more than 14 a week, and women should have no more than 3 drinks a day or more than 7 drinks a week.
These numbers seem ridiculously high to me...but I am not a drinker so whatever...
For all of you people who will begin Spring Break sometime within the next 24 - 48 hours...be careful...and have fun!

Another Man at Work...


I took this last week while searching for men at work. There was only one man working on these condos...poor guy. He is doing a great job though!
Have a great day, everyone!

Sweet Tooth...


I have a bit of a sweet tooth tonight...I took this picture a while back and have saved it for a day like today. These little cakes made at the local grocery store bakery look so good!

More Sunsets


Here is another unbelieveable sunset...
I hope you had a wonderful weekend...Here is to another week...

Ready for Summer...


I was just surfing through Megan's pictures and found this really cool one that I thought you would like. This is a reflection of the sunset in our pool. Can you tell we're ready for summer?

Happy Friday!


For those of you who don't know...Cingular has recently merged with AT&T. The other day we just showed you a picture of the largest Cingular store in Houston...well, yesterday while searching for "men at work" I spotted these men switching the Cingular logo to the AT&T logo. I am always amazed at how quickly things change...
