One of my favorite photos - one fine June afternoon in 2008, mommy and i attended a fabulous leacture at Southern Hills featuring several faculty members from M. D. Anderson. We had a wonderful time mingling with the local supporters of M. D. Anderson.
After work today I snapped a handful of photos from the roof of the parking garage. From the corner of Fannin and Holcombe, looking southward on Fannin. Plenty of traffic to enjoy nearly any time of day.
This is my particular baby, Edgar. He is named after my late maternal grandfather William Edgar Brunk. Edgar epitomizes the phrase gentle giant. The fact that his tongue is much too long for his mouth is the most comical aspect of his appearance, making him appear like an oversized teddy bear with one of those felt tongues stitched onto his face. But comical or not, I love him dearly.
I noticed this large spider in the yard at dusk building a web near the eve of the house. Apparently the spider was in the house a day or two ago and Cristy banished it to the backyard. There are plenty of flies to be had and this creepy crawly is a welcome neighbor to help keep that pest population under control.
Cristy snapped this photo after we returned from our little sojourn to Port Aransas and the dogs were SO happy to see us again. It only took 4 tries for everyone to look in the same direction simultaneously. Truly miraculous.
My former neighbor, Maria, gave me a clipping from her pencil cactus, as happy plants do, it was overgrowing its spot in her yard. She has a lovely garden and I am so thankful to be able to bring this gift from her garden with me to my new home. Thank you Maria!
My future sister-in-law celebrated her birthday last weekend and a handful of friends and family gathered for a casual brunch. Her son and I simulataneously photographed each other. I should have done a side-by-side!
Jasper is the most active and playful dog in the family. Chasing a ball is her idea of heaven. Absolutely the sweetest disposition in the world. She greets me when I wake in the morning and happily welcomes me when I arrive home after work.
