MEANWHILE HERE IN THE HOOD

TAKING A LONG WALK

ON THE TRINITY TRAIL

I RAN INTO A COWBOY

WITH A TEN GALLON HAT

ON A SKATE BOARD


I LAUGHED AND COMMENTED

WHILE PASSING HIM

"NOW I'VE SEEN IT ALL!"

HE COOLLY REPLIED

"LADY, YOU ARE IN TEXAS."




 THEN I PASSED

 THE LADY

WHO HAD JUST FINISHED

A 5K

WEARING A SLIGHTLY SHORTER

VERSION OF

THIS COSTUME


 WHILE I WAS WALKING

THE  CHILDREN OF THE HOOD

WERE HUNTING FOR LOST EGGS

IN THE PARK



AND TODAY

IS THE ANNUAL

TWO HOOD GARAGE SALE

PLANNED TO COINCIDE WITH

THE ANNUAL

THERE WILL BE

NO

GETTING IN OR OUT

OF THE HOOD

TODAY


HAVE I TOLD YOU

ABOUT THE

MINIATURE TRAIN

ON THE EDGE 

OF THE HOOD


IT STAYS FULL

ALL WEEKEND

IN THE SPRING


AND TODAY

 THERE IS A MAN

 ON MY ROOF

THE INSURANCE ADJUSTER

INSPECTING THE HAIL DAMAGE


AS THE

SPRING STORMS

CONTINUE 

TO ROLL THROUGH

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

STILL LIVING LIFE LARGE

HERE IN THE HOOD

  1. At first, when I read today's Blog, I wondered: "Has Lulu been eating a lot of cheese before going to bed?" Seeing a cowboy with a ten gallon hat on a skateboard, and a lady dressed as a pink basket is the stuff of Alice in Wonderland dreams which I often get after cheese and biscuits and ... a drink or two. The thing is, I love cheese and biscuits.

    What a lovely miniature train you have locally, and a zoo too. You're so lucky to have such great amenities nearby.

    Have a splendid day, Lulu. God bless you.

    1. The people here in Texas tend to lean to extremes, Victor!
      Yes, I do live in a beautiful place!
      Blessings, Friend!

  2. The "s" word is in the forecast here, Lulu. Thanks for the giggles, have a beautiful weekend. Hope your roof isn't going to cost too much. Blessings

  3. Now, you know I would just have to have the Jalapeno in a cowboy hat! Wouldn't the neighbors talk?! (Well, they would if we had neighbors.) I like quirky yard art.
    I wish you could talk Simply Linda into leaving those heathen up thar in Yankee land and moving to Texas. That would be too cool. Texas is awesome.
    I pray that insurance covers all costs with the roof, etc.
    Hope your day is blessed in the Hood. Y'all stay safe. ~:)

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
