One single impression: Fleeting

That Night

A fleeting rendezvous it was
From her that night her timid call
Nearing her door what would we do

Womanly instinct guides her now
A hug and kiss embrace some more
Touch and feel with reaches explore

No wine or candles here tonight
Hastily those flirtings to end
Harvesting now as frenzied love

Quickly she leads the dance that night
Over too soon memories won't fade
We part with kiss embrace and wave

Now was our fleeting rendezvous
Forbidden fleeting fantasy
A wistful dream never come true

SkyWatch Friday (my eleventh) -- Clear blue sky, a reflection

[click on any picture for larger size] [link for super sized]

Adi and I found this pretty pool on our walk this Tuesday.

Most times we don't come to this spot but take a more direct route home. Home from where Mrs. Jim drops us off, the golf pro shop and club house where she leaves to play golf with her buddies.

There was not a cloud in the sky that morning!

View coming down the lane from our house and on our continued walk. The Skywatch reflection picture was taken to the right of that little bridge on the right. [link for super sized]

This is on the other side of the bridge and also shows from where we had walk down. Adi is in the foreground contemplating exploring something she thinks might be interesting. [

I took the picture standing on the edge of the green area where you can see the water ahead. [

Mrs. Jim is riding away to meet her buds on the course. She had a nice morning of golf.

Please note that last week I could not get to every person who commented.
I will try harder this week.
And if I didn't get to your Skywatch last week, I promise I will this week.

One single impression: Autumn

[large picture] [super sized]

My Autumn

I'm in my autumn
Silly sounding you wonder
Autumn of my life

Remembers the past
Forgets what you said today
Autumn of my life

Playing this and that
Doesn't do his little chores
Autumn of my life

Sleeps from nine to nine
Waking to eat, read and blog
Autumn of my life

SkyWatch Friday (my ninth) -- Calm Before the Storm

These pretty Southeast Texas clouds are moving from northeast to southwest. Later they will be moving from east to west, then from south to north and finally from west to east.

What is going on? Here is their source (ABC13 Weather Storm News).

Today our Houston area is preparing for Hurricane Ike (and remembering at least 1,956 deaths in 2005 from Katrina and Rita).

One single impression: Defenses Down

Click any picture for large size

Defenses Down?

Go home
that's where I am wanting to go
go home, go home

Don't stop
just once perhaps will do no harm
don't stop, won't stop

I can't
'though all's so yummy enticing
I can't, I can't

I mustn't
Just a quick little tasty snack
I mustn't, I mustn't

I know
the family awaits, dogs as well
I know, I know

My home
it's calling me, please come right now
my home, my home

One bite
won't hurt, no one will ever know
one bite, that's all

At last
the last dark mile awaits me now
at last, at last

I've kept
my defenses up, up so good
I've kept, I've kept

I'm pure
not straying from where I should go
I'm pure, I'm pure

. . . . . . . . .

Don't let
please don't let your defenses down
don't let, don't let

You can
keep your defenses up, you can
so pure, stay pure

SkyWatch Friday (my eighth) -- Over the bridge and up through the trees

You can click on any picture for large, for super sized push the SS link.

[Super sized]

My friend John hosted our Montgomery Country Early Ford V-8 Club meeting at his home. Many of us drove our old Fords there. It was a beautiful setting there in John's front yard.

[super sized]

I helped John raise this windmill, a lot of us did. To See my earlier blog about the mill raising,
click here.

[super sized]

I took the first two with Skywatch in mind. That sky was so pretty on this July summer Texas day! This picture I wanted the windmill, lake, and lawn. The boat is extra.

Super sized: [the setting] [the cars] [the food]

Here is setting. Most of our cars were parked on he other side of the lake. My car, a 1950 Ford Deluxe Tudor was absent. I came in with the '98 Mustang GT convertible. For sure this was a top-down day.

The cars for our club are Fords, from 1932 when the Flathead V-8 engine was introduced through 1953 when this engine was replaced with an overhead valve V-8 engine.

Of course we ate, the Jim Bunch always eats (
link). We had BBQ brisket and chicken, potato salad, beans, chips and an awfully lot of fattening desert. Plus drinks from water to tea to all the popular soda drinks.

Super sized: [1953 Ford] [1934 Ford front] [1934 Ford rear]

On the left is a nice 1953 Ford Sunliner Convertible, the newest car for the Club. The cars just have to fit these years, '32-'53, I would like to have a 1952 or 1953 Ford Six-cylinder. This is a more modern overhead valve engine with a lot less problems.

The other car is a 1934 Ford Three-Window Coupe, front and rear. Today no one brought a 1932 Ford, the oldest for our club. My friend John sold his very nice 1932 Five-Window Coupe (little duece coupe) with a rumble seat. This 1934 Ford Coupe has a trunk instead of a rumble seat.

Our Club is affiliated with the national Early Ford V-8 Club of America (link). Each of us is a member in the national organization. I am a charter member of the Montgomery Club as well.
