April 13, 2013    Here's another from the Lgood archives.  It's a gorgeous 1965 Mustang - called the Silver Fox.    I can tell you - this is a magnificent, totally pristine car and even more gorgeous in person than what you see here.  It's a trailer queen and rarely driven (not my style - I want to drive my classic sometimes) but it's a true "Trophy Car" - it did win Best of Show here at the Yellow Rose event.    I made it back from NYC yesterday afternoon late - lots of delays due to weather out of LGA.      There's no place like home, pun intended......  I saw "Wicked" Thursday evening.  And I can tell you it was OUTSTANDING!!!!!!  "Wicked" has now eclipsed "Aida" as my all time favorite show on Broadway.  It's fabulous.    It was a long week starting out in Dallas Monday morning on a 7:00 a.m. flight (which means that I have to get up at 3:30 a.m. to get ready & drive the hour to the airport), then landed in Detroit - had an hour & 1/2 layover there.  Took the second flight of the day to Albany, NY, arriving approx 3:30 p.m..    One of my co-worker's wife forgot to pack his dress shirts, so we all had to go to the mall for him to buy enough shirts for the week.  He got lucky - Macy's was having a sale.      We were in Albany (my first time) for Monday evening, Tuesday & 1/2 day Wednesday.  We caught the Amtrak train to NYC Wednesday and worked for about 5 hours after arriving in NYC.  Meetings on Thursday in NYC started early, and were intense.      But then saw Wicked that night - and all the tiredness and stress melted away.      We did take the time to walk around Wednesday night in Times Square and the nearby streets - you'll see some of those photos from my point & shoot camera in the coming weeks.      NYC is always fun to visit.  This morning it was cold, windy and raining there, and I was glad to get back to Texas & the 70 degree weather this afternoon.    Thank you all for you comments this past week.  I apologize for being "missing in action" - but will do my best to browse your work from the past week over the weekend & comment.  You guys are incredible and so talented.      Have a silvery and wonderful day today my friends!    Linda
Opalescent - exhibiting a play of colors like that of the opal.  Anna's Hummingbird - low power flash shot taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
September 9, 2013  Thanks to everyone for your comments on my "I" photo yesterday.  It was great fun seeing all the super creative shots representing the letter I.  And thanks again to Donna McCommon for creating this fun challenge.  This lovely stand of Aspen trees was found on our drive around the La Sal Mountain's loop near Moab.  There were not nearly as large in girth as the ones shown in the photo of the deer I posted last Sunday, but they were very tall and lovely.  Aspens just fascinate me, I wish they could grow in North Texas, I would plant some in my yard.  Have a great week!  Linda
in a remote village in Northern Vietnam.  I snapped this picture north of the village Sapa Vietnam which is one of the poorest but most beautiful regions of Vietnam.  This little girl who is probably no more than 5 years of age is carrying and caring for her young brother while her parents work in the rice fields.  They came down from their hut to meet us because we brought a few small candies for them to eat. The girl and boy had never tasted candy before and they were delighted with the small candies we gave them.  The trip was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. They had so little but treated every small gift as something amazing.  While it seemed like I had so much compared to them, I realized when I was there that I had very little compared to them.  They had learned to appreciate each other and their families as cherished possessions while I had been taught to cherish material things.  It was a moment where I think we all had reason to envy each other.  What an eye opening and life changing experience it was for me.

Who remembers when "fuzzy dice" were all the rage? You just HAD to have a pair in your car to be cool.

This pair was hanging from the rearview mirror of a 1920 something model T pickup at a car show that we attended sometime in the last year or so. Another from the archives that I revisited and did some PP to. I used the Spicfy filter from Topaz and rather liked the results. You'll notice that the reflections in the windshield are of two red-shirted visitors that were admiring the truck. I also liked the reflections of the dice in the hood of the truck.

Hope your day isn't "dice-y" but rather very "nice-y" today my friends.
