That's sure nice "COLOR" to my eyes, Sailor - - - we have a Dogwood Festival plus a Trailride that treks to the Festival every year - - - - it's always so nice to take a road trip and see those Dogwoods blooming in the woods of The Texas Big Thicket. :tup: :salut:

Thanks, OUP! We do have a couple pink dogwoods scattered through the yard, but the past few years' weather hasn't been kind to them.

Down in Texas this evenin', it was sunset time so I decided to do a little porch surfin' and listen to the 60's legend and undisputed King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale, who dispite his failing kidneys, is STILL touring gigs all over the country and wowing young and old alike. Naturally, I had my Longboard right at hand...

Let's ... go .... surfin'!!



How does that bottle keep from falling over? :dont:

So I'm really slacking on this thread condidering I initiated it lol.
Check out this YouTube link, it's my page from over the years. I'll look for some pics to put on here but for now, enjoy some slideshows I put together from some sightseeing and photography I took.

While ur on my YouTube page, check out the crazy whacko on the sled. We go to see motorcross in upstate N.Y. a lot and each year this nut comes out at intermission in 90 degree weather on a snowmobile lol

Disclaimer: I know that there are many large and beautiful Trees in the good ol USA but to stand underneath a big Texas Live Oak is still breathtaking to me. :texas:

We have some Oaks here but they rot out before they get that big.

thanks, Wild Bill, it's my favorite fo sho - - - another tree that I loved to see was a strip of Loblolly Pines North of Bastrop Texas - - - much prettier than the tall skinny long leaf pines of East Texas where I grew up.
