Getting there is half the fun ... Looking At the Sky

Our local Early Ford V-8 Club had an outing. We went to the Lienda Plantation after meeting at 10:00 in the morning to drive together from Magnolia, Texas.

These pictures show a little of the Texas scenery we encountered along the way. We were south of the hills we have around our home in Montgomery, everything was flat. There weren't even any freeways with those little overpass bumps.

A few of the cars were newer than our charter recognized. I was in my
1998 Ford Mustang GT Convertible (scroll down in picture), with the top down, there were a 1957 Ford T-Bird and a 1980's Mercedes belonging to members who did not drive their early fords.

Early Fords are from 1932 to 1953, the years that Ford had a flat head V-8 engine as an option.

One Single Impression: Farewells

Fond Farewells

fond farewells happen
kiss hug grin smile when she goes
most often so sad

fond farewells happen
thank God and Greyhound she's gone *
gone is love--her too

fond farewells happen
I found out the hard way now
I'm already gone *

cried and cried some more
it wasn't so fond at all
not a fond farewell
when will sobbing ever stop

elusive sleep * -- Valium

this one is not fond
my little creature Adi
sorely missed my dog

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same may go for poetry? (whatever, I enjoy painting with the words!)
