April 12, 2011    Hello everyone, I'm really late getting my POTD posted today.  We had some pretty wild weather here in Waxahachie, TX and have been without electricity for about 36 hours.  It's just a reminder how much we sometimes take 'every day things' for granted, like hot water, lights, microwave, etc.  The good news is it's back on and we didn't sustain any damage, but unfortunately a lot of people around here did.  My heart goes out to several that lost roofs, trees, fences and one in particular who lost his entire building that his business was housed in.  Fortunately there were no injuries.    So my apologies for not commenting lately - I'll get caught up soon.  I'm headed to Birmingham again in the morning for the rest of the week, but I'll have some evenings in the hotel that I can enjoy your wonderful photos and comment.  I thank all of you sincerely for your wonderful comments today and yesterday.    It's probably going to be a "Mustang" photo week, since we went to a National Mustang show this past weekend.  This is a 1969 Mach 1, like my car - except that it has a 351 motor and mine has a 390.  But the biggest difference is that this car has won so many Concourse d'Elegance gold awards that it is now in the Conservator class.  It has all of the parts that it would have had when it originally rolled off the factory floor in 1969.  Making conservator is really, really tough.  This one was a beauty and is a gorgeous maroon color.  The car came to Texas for the show from Illinois.    Hope you enjoy - this is SOOC.    Have a great evening!    Linda
May 30, 2015  This is granddaughter Eleanor enjoying ice cream at a local fast food place.  You can see that she's in hog heaven.  I loved the innocent joy on her face.    Eleanor is our next to the youngest grandchild, she will be 4 on June 17th.  Her cousin Kaylin (who you all have seen photos of) is the youngest of the grands and she will be 4 on July 20th.

May 29, 2015  Time to relax
January 5.   Hoarfrost, even on the thorns of this rose.
Lofoten 5 :  Fishermans house
Rome 3 :  This is my grocery store near our lodging at Piazza Navona.  We came there every morning to shop for our lunch.  After a few days we almost felt that we were family.  Our Italian vocabulary improved a lot in few days. It was a sad day when we left for home .

March 31, 2013    This is another shot from the archives, and is of an antique safe found in the basement of one of the bank branches that I toured on one of my many, many business trips.  It's an old Mosler Safe, that you can tell in it's day was just lovely.  The sad part is that the combination has long been forgotten, and I couldn't find any dates on it, but would guess it may be from the 1920s to perhaps the 1950s.  I'm not really sure.  The First State Bank of Rio Grande City, TX was chartered in 1910 and was the first owner of this safe.      According to Wikipedia:  In 1859 Charles Diebold, a German immigrant lock repairman, and Fred Bahmann started the "Diebold, Bahmann & Co." manufacturing safes.  However, Diebold and Bahman split up and Bahmann formed a new partnership with another immigrant, an Austrian newspaper editor this time, named Gustav Mosler.  Mosler had immigrated to the US in 1849.  He engaged in the manufacturing of "cigars" in New York and then Cincinnati until his funds were sufficient to open a lithography business in 1859.  He also became a member of the firm od Diebold, Bahmann & Co, in 1859.  His energies in managerial and financial abilities were valuable assets to Diebold, Bahmann & Co.    The new company was the "Mosler, Bahmann & Co."  Gustav Mosler died in 1874.  In 1876 the son's of Gustav Mosler formed the Mosler Safe Company.  Fred Bahmann continuing the Mosler-Bahmann Co.    In 1888 the Mosler Safe Co., sued Mosler, Bahmann & Co., over an apparant pat'd infringment, and in 1892 both companies were still listed as manufactures in Cincinnati, Oh.     It was Diebold who had the last laugh, though—in 2001, it purchased the bankrupt Mosler safe company.  And, Diebold is still a well known name in the 21st century banking world.    Thanks to everyone for your great comments and suggestion about my photo slump, I'm following several of them and I'm sure I'll 'get my photo groove' back soon thanks to all of you!!!    Have a blessed Easter Sunday.    Linda
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
